Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello inducted KISS in to the Rock Hall of Fame tonight at a ceremony in New Jersey. Here`s Tom`s speech:

"TONIGHT IS THE NIGHT THAT KISS ENTERS THE ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME," Tom Morello, of Rage Against the Machine, pipes from the stage.

"You can kiss my Kiss-loving --s," Morello recalls telling a boyhood friend of his who didn't like the band.

Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello is preaching as much as inducting. "They are four of the most famous faces on the planet, and one of the most iconic and badass bands of all time," says Morello.

"I recall as a 15 year old I remember telling a bully, 'You can kiss my kiss-loving ass,'" says Morello. "Kiss was never a critics’ band, Kiss was a people’s band."

"Simply put, Kiss is the band that made me and millions of others love rock and roll. ... They've inspired everyone from Metallica to Lady Gaga."

Morello really nails the balance on an ugly situation: He namechecks every member of Kiss from the original members through Eric Singer and Tommy Thayer. "But tonight we honor the fearsoem foursome, the four original members of Kiss."

"But tonight, we also honor the fifth member of the band without who this night would never have happened, tonight we celebrate Kiss Nation," says Morello. "I misspoke earlier when I said Kiss was entering the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Tonight it's the Rock and Roll All Nite and Party Every Day Hall of Fame."
