    He's more of a blues man. Yes, he played R&R but, yadda yadda yadda the RARHOF is a joke! Madonna!?! Seriously!?!

    Two LA punk bands that need to be in there: Black Flag, and X.

    While I think the ROR HOF is a load of bs, my votes go to Kate Bush, Judas Priest, MC5, Radiohead, Nina Simone, Sister Rosetta Tharpe. ESPECIALLY Sister Rosetta Tharpe, her influence spreads far and wide and largely goes unnoticed.

    Yet, ABBA was inducted several years ago. That says allot, and some deserving folks have been left out for whatever reason. R&R HOF is a misnomer as stated previously be another poster. Perhaps early on it may have had that vision, but it has morphed into something else.

    Agreed. I considered the Pistols Punk as well.

    Hell, Greg Ginn belongs there on his own for starting and running SST. the alt-rock scene would have been completely different without the company's support of bands like Husker Du, Soundgarden (both those bands belong in too!), Dinosaur Jr, and others.

    I would personally group motown and blues etc.. as Rock and Roll though, they all have the same soul and roots behind them. Anything with a group on stage consisting of rhythm section, guitars, keyboards, singing, etc... would be R+R to me. Modern rap, or any of the music that sounds like a bunch of computer-generated noises is not Rock and Roll to me, despite what Billy Joel said in 1980.

    Unfortunately, I believe the RRHOF is on the path to just being R+R in name only, while in reality just being a general popular music hall of fame. When Public Enemy was in the discussion years back, I remember people saying "No, their stuff wasn't rock...But their attitude was, and fits in with the rebellion that is the heart of rock and roll".
    Well, if that's your guideline for considering who gets in, anybody could be inducted. Outlaw country guys had rebellion, I'm sure there are some angst-filled opera singers out there somewhere. :laugh2:

    I agree, it just seems to be "popular music" as opposed to strictly rock n roll. What about disco acts like ABBA??

    Sister Rosetta Tharpe invented the "windmill".

    That is surely enough by itself.

    Has there been any response from Rage Against the Machine? There is no possible way they will consider this any kind of honor.

    Even if those band get in, I can't take the R&R HoF seriously because a lot of other artists that are in it that have absolutely nothing to do with rock and roll.

    On the other hand there's no doubt a way they can make money from a principled refusal. Surely they can find it.

    Of course the joke is that those bands are already in the R&R HOF and the idea is that R&R has many many roots and influences, hence all the other types of music and artists contributing to what R&R has evolved into over the years. I like the inclusion, it's a musical umbrella because rock encompasses all kinds of music.

    You would think that, but who knows. Tom Morello took great honor in inducting KISS. He even did it without a rant.
