Rolling Stone announced the inductees for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame's Class of 2014: Nirvana, KISS, Peter Gabriel, Hall & Oates, Cat Stevens, and Linda Ronstadt. The ceremony will take place April 10th at Brooklyn's Barclays Center, and the event will be televised on HBO in May.

Not surprisingly the Replacements, who were nominated for induction, didn't make the cut. They join the long list of seminal acts who have been snubbed over the years: MC5, Roxy Music, Big Star, Joy Division, Sonic Youth, The Smiths, The Pixies, Kraftwerk, The Cure, New Order, Depeche Mode, The Jam, Siouxsie & the Banshees, Husker Du, XTC, etc. Even legends like Ella Fitzgerald, John Coltrane, Duke Ellington, and the Carpenters haven't been honored.

Regardless, it's a nice tip of the hat to Nirvana, and Dave Grohl & Krist Novoselic have both commented publicly on Nirvana's inclusion in the Hall of Fame:

Grohl:

"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."

Novoselic:

"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."

Interestingly enough, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony will take place just days after the 20th anniversary of Kurt Cobain's death.
