It's irrelevant.

It's a meaningless.

People should refuse it's induction.

Warren would have never sold out to that crap anyway.

I agree.  Warren is in better company not being in the R&RHOF

The best "contest" I ever saw was in the early-1980s when a beer company sponsored a search for the great unsigned American band with the prize being a recording contract.  If I recall correctly the three finalists were the Del Fuegos, my personal favorite the Long Ryders (with Sid Griffin) and Del Lords.  Surprisingly,  all were great choices.   The Del Lords won but then turned the prize down not wanting to be sponsored by a beer company earning them the nickname America's Most Honorable Band.  All three did get recording contracts but only the Del Fuegos went with a major label.

And here's another, just posted from the "In My Room" series on Rolling Stone's channel. Fogarty sounds pretty good at 74, still singing this in the in the same key.  Check out the guitar in the second clip ("Bad Moon Rising"). Looks to me like an early 50s SJ converted into a prototype J-160.
