Here are this years lot. Foo Fighters, Tina Turner, JAY-Z, Todd Rundgren, The Go-Go’s, and Carole King.

Love Todd. Carole had one stellar album and is a great songwriter. Tina is a legend. The rest eat chain.

I think the HOF sealed their coffin years ago when Janet Jackson got in. Not that I'm commenting on this year's crew, but respect for that institution died a long time ago. Could be called the Hall of 'Lame'.

My wife & I love Carole, we both liked her best with James Taylor but both were great on their own. I listened to Tina a lot more than she did. We both like Todd Rundgren.  I know nothing of the other three?

Did Ken Stabler get into the Hockey Hall of Fame, No, cause he played football not hockey. If the rappers want their own hall let 'em build one, and stop inducting performers that have nothing to do with rock into one that is called the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.  I went to The Country Music Hall of Fame a few years ago and ya know what Led Zeppelin and no rappers were inducted there.

like everything else (Grammy's, Emmy's...) 

it's been hijacked, and not even a shadow of what it was intended to be.

Alex Lifeson hit the nail on the head with his exception speach... 

Blah--blah, bla-blahhh...

personally  I could care less...

I don't like rap, but I'm not knocking it. Its is own musical genera, and its not rock. If they want their own hall, have the rappers built one and induct all rap acts they want. Did you read my statement about Ken Stabler and he not in the Hockey Hall Of Fame cause he wore cleats and not skates when he played. What don't you understand about that?

what dont you understand about constant negativity ? 

I'm not I'm using logic that is to far over your head to comprehend.

Here is a simple question for you to answer is Rap or Hip Hop, Rock? I'm gonna say it isn't and hence Rap and Hip Hop Acts should not be inducted to Hall call the Rock Hall Of Fame. Get it, probably not. I know logic is tough for you.

Aerosmith's version from Toys In The Attic is rock. The one they did with Run DMC when they needed money is a new genera called Rack.

I don’t pay attention to who is in the hall or not. If I like the music I’d listen. But I also would say that anything that is not rock does not have a place for the hall of fame - that is supposed to feature rock and roll history greats. This inclusiveness crap has got to stop!

This thread should be a sh*t show.  😄   What about "Free Your Mind" by En Vogue.  What genre is that?   

 

"Porn Pop."  (BTW, that's great stuff.)

Naw, they have way to may articles of clothing on and no one is fornicating.

I think they call that R & B, but its just garage dance music like Madonna makes. Oh that non rocker is in the Hall. And can some one explain to me what is Rock about ABBA, yep there in as well. The hall is crock. I told my wife the only way I would go is if Thin Lizzy or UFO (either one) who got nominated a few years back got in I would go with her. I knew full well neither would, so to this day I am still safe from going.

Both Carol AND Tina are legends.  Many of rock's early hits( and beyond) were co-written by Carol and then husband Gerry Goffin.  That it took this long for Carol to get into any musical hall of fame is the puzzle.  

I can agree about the others.  I've heard not much difference(from what I've heard) between The Foo Fighters and other contemporary  bands like GREEN DAY and Smashing Pumpkins.

Some (like me) would say that seal was set years earlier in 2008 when Madonna was inducted.   ABBA's in their too and I've long questioned that as well.

And I can go along with SARGE's idea of Rap and Hip-Hop having their own Hall of Fame.  I'm not any racial segregationist, but rock'n'roll and rap do seem to be much different genres from one another.  But, if some people feel that calling comic books "graphic novels"  :rolleyes: is OK,  others might then feel that anything goes.  But too, if you think about it,   without rock'n'roll, there'd BE no rap or hip-hop.  [cool]

Here's the induction letter:

Second edition, (I"m the guy all  the way to the right side with my head over the green "H" in "March".

May be an image of 11 people, people standing and text
 
 

Third Edition:

May be an image of text
 
 
Wasn't really "inducted", more like I snuck in the back door!
