In case you were wondering. I am disappointed in the induction ceremony for the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. KISS was the only group/artist to stick within the two minutes each guidelines, whereas no one else did and because of it there wasn’t an all star jam at the end of the show like previous induction ceremonies. I find it shameful on the Hall’s part and also the fact that even during the whole process they disrespected KISS. How sad of an organization is this? Hopefully bands like Deep Purple and Yes get in next year.

Ok, I admit it. I don’t get the Black Keys. I don’t like their music and at this point you will need to find your own source for them, because, honestly, I can’t stand them. That is all.

This week’s Rockucation question is: What legendary song and band are these lyrics from:
“With a purposeful grimace and a terrible sound, He pulls the spitting high tension wires down, Helpless people on a subway train, Scream bug-eyed as he looks in on them”
