Rock n Roll Hall of Fame Nomination Thoughts




The new list of nominees have come out for the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame and here they are:

Pearl Jam
Tupac Shakur
Depeche Mode
Electric Light Orchestra
Jane's Addiction
Janet Jackson
Journey
The Cars
The Zombies
Yes
Bad Brains
Chaka Khan
Chic
J. Geils Band
Joan Baez
Joe Tex
Kraftwerk
MC5
Steppenwolf

From that list, I'd vote for Pearl Jam, Electric Light Orchestra (ELO), The Cars and The Zombies.  I wouldn't mind Journey and Yes getting in there, but in my opinion, I'm not sure the rest deserve it.   Also, this would be an excellent time to mention that bands like Judas Priest, Motley Crue and Iron Maiden are well overdue for nominations to the Hall of Fame, but the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame has never given metal the respect it earned and deserves.  It would also be an excellent time to mention that rap does not deserve a place in the ROCK N ROLL Hall of Fame; so screw the Tupac nomination.

They do have a fan vote for this years group, so if you'd like to cast your vote, go here:
