I used to have no problem with the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland and I used to defend them but after seeing this year’s 2020 inductees, I’ll no longer defend them no more. Like the title of this topic says, I’ll confess it finally that the Rock Hall of Fame don’t know what they’re doing and they haven’t been for a long time. For the first time I think, I’m upset with the inductees this year and disappointed like most.
Motorhead, Judas Priest, Soundgarden, Thin Lizzy and Pat Benatar snubbed this year but non-rock n’ roll acts like Whitney Houston and Notorious BIG get it instead? Fucking serious?
The only inductees they got right this year were the Doobie Brothers and T-Rex but Whitney Houston, Notorious, Depeche Mode and NIN? No thanks!
I know the Hall of Fame are slowly trying to induct more rock but they fail at that each year. I know they are also trying to induct more Seattle grunge bands… they already inducted Nirvana and Pearl Jam finally but it’s crazy that they snubbed Soundgarden. It’s like, really? Are they out of their fucking minds?
After seeing this year’s Hall of Fame inductees, it’s appearing more and more that today’s music industry are pretty anti-rock and they have been for a pretty long time. They’re trying to act like rock n’ roll doesn’t exist anymore and seems like they’re trying to make rock disappear completely. That’s why the industry always constantly ramming pop, rap and country down our throats still. Gene Simmons is right that rock n’ roll is dead… it’s just about there anyways.
Like I said above, the Doobie Brothers and T-Rex were both worthy…. the Hall of Fame got those two right and I love both of those bands. The Doobie Brothers are rock n’ roll and they wrote many hits that we all know and love. T-Rex are hit makers too but their anthem is “Bang a Gong (Get it On)” which is a song that I love. Marc Bolan who is the singer/guitarist of T-Rex is no longer with us as he died in the year 1977 due to a car crash at a young age of 29 but this will be a nice tribute for him and I wonder who is going to induct T-Rex into the Hall of Fame? That will be interesting. T-Rex was long overdue… I love that fucking band as I’m a huge fan. I’m sure the surviving members of T-Rex will be there to accept the induction… I think some of them died and some of them are still living today.
I’ll have to agree with everyone finally that the Hall of Fame sucks and getting worse every year. They aren’t getting any better either.
