Wall Township, N.J. (AP) -- Kiss won't rock and roll all night -- or at any point during the day, either -- when they are inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in April.

The 40-year-old band is unable to agree on which lineup should perform during the April 10 ceremony in New York City.

The dispute concerns whether original members Ace Frehley and Peter Criss would join Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley in a live performance, or whether the current lineup of Stanley, Simmons, Eric Singer and Tommy Thayer would play.

In a message on its web site Sunday, Kiss says it won't perform with any lineup, calling it "an emotional situation where there is no way to please everyone."

Criss lives in Wall Township, N.J. He calls the decision "disgraceful."
