The 2014 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees have been revealed and Nirvana is among the honorees. In a poll asking fans to vote for their picks for the 2014 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Nirvana led the charge with KISS closely behind them. Both Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic have released their reaction statements, with Grohl being taken aback:
"For once... I'm speechless. From the basements, to the dingy clubs, to the broken down vans, to... the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. I'd like to thank the committee not only for this induction, but also for recognizing Nirvana for what we were: pure rock and roll. Most of all, thank you to all of the fans that have supported rock and roll throughout the years, and to Kurt and Krist, without whom I would not be here today."
Krist Novoselic had the following to say:
"This is a great honor. Thank you to the people who nominated and voted for us. Thank you most of all to Kurt Cobain. And to everyone who's kept Rock music going strong for 60 years and counting."
Other artists being inducted next year are Hall and Oats, Peter Gabriel, KISS, Cat Stevens, and Linda Ronstadt. The ceremony will take place April 10th at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center. This marks the first year where the event will be open to the general public. Tickets go on sale in January.
Nirvana celebrated the 20th anniversary of their third studio album "In Utero" by reissuing the album on various formats. If you haven't picked up a copy, get the reissue from their website. For more on Nirvana visit Radio Not Found.
