    Not really feeling any of them. I like Dire Straights. Not RRHOF to me. Mayube Moody Blues though. Unfortunately Bovi will probably get the headline.

    I think Radiohead and RATM are the least deserving on the list, and I also believe that they are both an absolute guaranteed lock.

    This is hilarious, since every one of those have been inducted. And I thought we were supposed to EAT AT SAL'S ?

    I've been saying Link Wray should be in for years. MC5 as well honestly, if the Stooges are in, MC5 should definitely be in.

    But they have to let rap acts in or else they risk being deemed racist and non inclusive. But rock acts are not allowed on the BET awards.

    I'll give a shit again when they start being honest about calling it what it is. Not rock n roll but it's about popular music in reality. It's a farce. Another things is groups should get in not on their popularity but if they did something major in music for the first time. Such as creating a certain sound or genre of music. That can be said about some of this year's nominees. But Rosetta Tharpe is not rock or pop. Link Wray however is he brought distortion to the masses. I can't care about a organization that will eventually induct Britney Spears into something called rock n roll HOF. Pretty sad when Jan Hammer is closer to belonging in there more that half the nominees every year

    RRHOF sucks ass. How the fuck can a place that sells that stupid name on coffee cups be 'Rock and Roll'? Exit through the gift shop.

    I would give anything to see Matchbox 20 win BET Entertainer of the Year or something.
    All the major cities (not counting Denver) would burn to the ground.

    I get your point, but all the motown artists were inducted like 20 years ago! So it's not like rap is the first time they have been diverse.

    Dire Straits. Everything is disco and a band records sultan of swing.
