I hate the idea and institution of RnR Hall of Fame, but I even more don't understand this:

Why is he nominated? Its not the Hiphop hall of fame. While we're at it, lets add some Jazz cats. Why hasn't anyone nominated Stravinsky yet?
:agreed: One thing I realized over 10 years ago when watching VH1 is that to most "old guys in the music industry,"

Rock = All popular music regardless of whether it's rap, reggae, techno, blues, R&B, bubblegum pop, or peanut-butter-and-jelly-sandwich pop.

MTV does it too, but they've always been more concerned with everything EXCEPT music. So VH1 would be like "I think he is the most important figure in the rock music of the last twenty years" ....... and you find out that he was talking about Doctor Dre. :squint:

Due to Jann Wenner's influence with the RRHOF, if Rolling Stone magazine hated you back in the day, you're probably not getting into the HOF. That's the only conceivable reason that Rush and Yes are not in there already.

Let me bring out Frank Zappa's dusty old quote: "Definition of rock journalism: People who can’t write, doing interviews with people who can’t think, in order to prepare articles for people who can’t read."

Momma said KNOCK YOU OUT

There are some on there that should be on the list, but LL Cool J?????? Especially when Kiss and Rush are not in it. But I'm pretty sure the whole Rock 'N Roll Hall of Fame is a sham.

LL Cool J kicks the shit out of Kiss. Then again, my high school band kicked the shit out of Kiss. Hell, Olivia Newton John kicks the shit out of Kiss, and she has no breasts.

Kiss sucks. :noway:

KISS Is a money making machine. Fuck'em. LL Cool J is not a rock musician in any way shape or form. Rush should have been inagurated in the 1980s.

Rock 'N Roll Hall of Fame is a sham.
