So Nirvana and Pearl Jam are now in the Rock N’ Roll Hall of Fame. It definitely seems like that the Hall of Fame is trying to induct all the 90’s grunge bands. When will Soundgarden ever get in ’cause they are eligible, I would think? Stone Temple Pilots is just about eligible, I think they’ll be eligible next year. Alice In’ Chains is Hall of Fame worthy and they are definitely eligible ’cause their first album “Facelift” was released in 1990. The Pixies are considered a grunge band and I think they’re worthy too.
I think it’s interesting that the Hall of Fame are trying to induct 90’s grunge bands which is the right thing to do. That genre definitely did change rock n’ roll history.
Aaaaahhh, the good ol’ 90’s. I miss those days when rock n’ roll was all over the mainstream… grunge and alternative rock they used to call it. Even though the Smashing Pumpkins were not considered grunge music, I think they’ll make their way into the Hall of Fame at some point. I think the Pumpkins deserve it for sure especially the original lineup: Billy C., D’arcy, James Iha and Jimmy Chamberlin. I love the Smashing Pumpkins, always did.
I’m a huge fan of the 90’s era and I’ll tell ya right now that I still listen to that kind of music. I love 90’s music and still do. All that music was a big part of my teenage years. I was in high school during those years. I think I was in junior high when Nirvana’s “Nevermind” and Pearl Jam “Ten” first came out. I remember buying those albums when they came out and still have those CD’s in my collection right now, still sitting on my CD shelf. I remember back then Pearl Jam’s “Ten” was being played everywhere I go. I would hear other students playing that album on their boomboxes and shit like that. That album was a massive hit back then. So if you don’t think Pearl Jam is Hall of Fame worthy, you’re out of your fucking mind. Of course, Pearl Jam is worthy. They accomplished so much. They’re still together doing their thing with the same members. I don’t like Pearl Jam anymore but I admired their career and what they did in the past. I know the Hall of Fame is probably getting knocked for picking Pearl Jam but I think they did the right thing. Pearl Jam had quite a history and legacy. Can’t deny it whether you like them or not.
With all this being said, I hope the Hall of Fame inducts Soundgarden, STP, Alice In Chains and the Smashing Pumpkins soon. I think STP will be next for 2018 ’cause they would hit 25 years with their first album “Core” by now.
