KISS’s Gene Simmons made headlines last week when he decided to share his thoughts on pop performers such as Rhianna, calling her “fake bullshit.” This week, Simmons has more opinions to share with the world- the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame is a joke. And why is the reputable famous instituation a joke… essentially because KISS hasn’t been inducted.

While speaking with Rolling Stone, Simmons shared that the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame has “become a joke… We’ve been thinking about it and the answer is simply, ‘We’ll just buy it and fire everybody.”

“In all seriousness for the fans, for something to be called Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is such an insult to Madonna, Blondie, and Tone Loc.”

"Who the f**k knows what other disco act is in there? It's an insult to them because they don't get to be in the 'Dance Hall of Fame', because that's what they do. They're legitimate dance, disco artists. They don't belong in rock and roll," Simmons continued.

“The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has reached a point where they’re really scrounging and scratching to find someone left that they consider viable… With all due respect, when you get to Patti Smith you’re about two steps away from Pete Seeger,” KISS’s Paul Stanley added.

I think it’ safe to assume that if the Hall of Fame was considering KISS for their 2012 inductees, that is now off the table.
