KISS is in the RRHOF but not Alice Cooper....WHY ????



THE Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is celebrating its 25th with mega concerts at Madison Square Garden. You’ll hear Aretha Franklin but not Chubby Checker, Metallica but not Iron Maiden. That’s because they’re not in the HOF. Neither are Joe Cocker, the Smiths or Hall & Oates

Rachael Ray, at least, is looking to change that last one. “Whether you love their music or not, they define ’80s music,” Ray tells The Post. “To be insulted in that way, it isn’t right.” She’s even started an online petition at rachaelrayshow.com to get Hall & Oates nominated. No one was more surprised by Ray’s support at a taping for her show than the pair themselves.

“When Rachael busted out with this whole thing — ‘Let’s do a petition’ — it was amazing,” says John Oates. (The episode airs Nov. 9.)<p>
