Gene Simmons appears to be very disatisfied about rap group N.W.A earning their spot in the Rock Hall of Fame.
“Rock ‘n’ roll is not an instrument. It’s not even a style of music. It’s a spirit that’s been going on since the blues, jazz, bebop, soul, rock ‘n’ roll, R&B, heavy metal, punk rock, and yes, hip-hop,” said Cube, adding, “Rock ‘n’ roll is not conforming to the people who came before you, but creating your own path in music and life. That is rock ‘n’ roll and that is us.”
N.W.A is the fifth hip-hop group to land in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, following memorable acts including Run-DMC and the Beastie Boys.
