The nominees for the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame's Class of 2014 have been announced, and for the second year in a row Kiss, the New York City heavy rock band of the 1970s and today are on the ballot. We feel that they should have been inducted last year!

Kiss has 28 gold albums to their credit, the most of any American rock band.  Concert venues worldwide have continued to sell out year after year. The band has sold over one hundred million albums.

With their masks and costumes, the marketing ability of this band has never been matched.  Over the years millions and millions of dollars have been made, as fans have purchased everything from Kiss dolls to Kiss coffins.

Kiss started out in 1973 with original members Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Ace Frehley and Peter Criss.  Frehley and Criss are no longer with the band, although they continue to tour with Eric Singer and Tommy Thayer.

Not to belittle any performer or band, but when bands like "The Comets" and "The Moonglows" already sit in the Hall, it's hard to imagine why the Kiss machine is not there also. Click below to hear what Gene Simmons had to say about last year's failed attempt to get into the Hall.
