Replacements miss call for Rock Hall


The Replacements will have to wait another year to be considered for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

The Star Tribune reports the Minneapolis group missed the final cut Monday night for induction into the Rock Hall.

Instead, Linda Ronstadt, Nirvana, Cat Stevens, Kiss, Peter Gabriel and Hall & Oates are going in.

The Replacements became eligible to be nominated in 2006, but the group didn't make the ballot for consideration until this year.

The group was among nine acts to miss the call to the Rock Hall. More than 700 critics, musicians and industry workers vote on the honors.

Musicians become eligible for the Rock Hall 25 years after they release their first recording.

The nomination for The Replacements came after an unexpected set of reunion gigs for the band at RiotFest concerts in Toronto, Chicago and Denver in August and September.

The Toronto gig was the first for The Replacements since the band quietly disappeared after a July 4, 1991 show.

The 2014 Rock Hall induction ceremony is set for April 10 in New York. USA Today reports the 29th annual ceremony will be open to fans for the first time.

"It gives them a chance to be a part of the ceremony, but it also adds a palpable energy to the event," Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation President Joel Peresman told USA Today.
