NEW YORK Kiss, Nirvana and Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band have been ushered into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in a ceremony at Barclays Center.

They were joined Thursday by duo Hall & Oates, British rocker Peter Gabriel, 1970s folkie Cat Stevens and the absent Linda Ronstadt.

Nirvana was the emotional centerpiece. The trio rooted in the Seattle-area punk rock scene was voted into the hall in its first year of eligibility.

Original Kiss members Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley had wanted the replacements for ex-bandmates Ace Frehley and Peter Criss to perform at the ceremony instead of the original four. The result: Kiss's music went unheard.

Springsteen's 1999 entrance into the hall without the E Street Band was a sore point for some members, who finally got their due.
