KISS fans are celebrating today with the glam band's induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. They are joined by five other performers who range in style from grunge rock to blue-eyed soul. For Ohio Public Radio, WCPN’s David C. Barnett has more on the Rock Hall's Class of 2014.

Never a favorite among critics, KISS has a legion of devoted fans who have long clamored to get their band inducted.

Artists are eligible for induction 25 years after the release of their first record, and KISS has been waiting since 1999. By contrast, Nirvana is getting in the first year it’s eligible.

A group of more than 600 musicians, historians and other music industry professionals also selected Peter Gabriel, Hall and Oats, Cat Stevens and Linda Ronstadt.

The induction ceremony takes place on April 10th in Brooklyn, N.Y., where the Beatles manager, the late Brian Epstein, and Rolling Stones manager and producer Andrew Loog Oldham are being given special recognitions, as will Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band.  The inductions return to Cleveland in 2015.
