Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello inducted Kiss into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Thursday.

In his speech, Morello said, "You can kiss my Kiss-loving ass because Kiss wasn't a critics' band. It's the people's band. ... Tonight proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that the high school bullies and critics were wrong. Kiss fans were right. Impact, influence and awesomeness -- Kiss have all three in spades. ... Tonight, this isn't the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. It's the Rock and Roll All Nite and Party Every Day Hall of Fame."
