There aren’t too many “rock n’ roll” inductees this year. This so called “Rock n’ roll” hall of fame is getting less and less “rock” each year. It’s like WTF? Jay-Z, LL Cool J, Carole King? Tina Turner is kind of rock but more on the pop/rock side, same with the Go’s Go’s.
There’s no “true” rock n’ roll in this hall of fame this year with the exception of Randy Rhoads and Todd Rundgren which are the only two great choices.
The Foo Fighters maybe around for over 20 years in which makes them qualifying but I still think it’s too soon for them.
Where’s Iron Maiden? They actually got the snub when they got nominated for this really? Nope. The Hall of Shame prefers Jay-Z and LL Cool J more.
No surprise they would have Jay-Z in knowing how “leftist” the Rock Hall in Cleveland really is.
There are so many legendary bands and artists totally deserving to be in the Hall of Fame before the Foos, Jay-Z and LL Cool. It’s a travesty that Iron Maiden is not in the Hall of fame when they should be ’cause they are the greatest metal band of all time.
Also Motorhead should get in there… Billy Idol, Blue Oyster Cult, King Crimson and Jethro Tull is still not even in there yet. Also, what about George Thorogood and the Destroyers?
While 90’s grunge music is starting to get in the Hall of Fame, Soundgarden and Alice In Chains need to get in there at some point. The Smashing Pumpkins will get in there as well.
Fuck the Hall of Shame… so out of touch and they are very “anti-rock” for sure.
