Rush and the Rock Hall[Kiss, Genesis, ABBA, LL Cool J, Red Hot Chili Peppers lead Rock Hall nominees list for 2010]

It's time for the annual snubbing of Rush by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The list of nominees for induction in 2010 was just announced and once again Rush is not on the list. No surprise there, but I was pleasantly surprised by a couple of the choices. This year's list includes first time nominees Kiss, Jimmy Cliff, Genesis, The Hollies, LL Cool J, Laura Nyro and the Red Hot Chili Peppers along with previous nominees ABBA, The Chantels, Darlene Love, The Stooges and Donna Summer. I'm really happy that Kiss and Genesis are finally getting a nod. We'll see if the nominating committee is serious about these choices when they finally whittle the list down to the 5 actual inductees in January. I think this bodes well for Rush's chances in the next few years.
