Nirvana, Kiss will join Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 2014

Nirvana and Kiss lead this year’s class of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees, with their celebration set to be the first ceremony open to the public in New York.

Also set to be inducted at the Barclays Center on April 10 are: Peter Gabriel, Daryl Hall and John Oates, Linda Ronstadt and Cat Stevens. The E Street Band will receive the Award for Musical Excellence, while Beatles manager Brian Epstein and original Rolling Stones manager Andrew Loog Oldham will receive the Ahmet Ertegun Award.

Update: Nirvana members Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic have responded to their induction with a pair of issued statements:

“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.”–Dave Grohl

“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.”–Krist Novoselic
