Hopefully now all the Farkers with massive hard-ons for Rush will quit biatching that they never get in, and turn their attention to more worthwhile causes.

Yeah, Kraftwerk getting the shaft again is pretty lame, they are far more influential to just about every genre of music than most people will give them credit for.

Neil, Geddy & Alex are already working on their version of MacArthur Park. Man, it's gonna be sweeter than the Dick Harris version, darn tootin'.

And Joy Division. Most every 'modern rock' band in the aughts aped something from the JD/Kraftwerk catalogue.

Donna Summers and Public Enemy over Deep Purple? fark that shiat.

Establishment to be Reamed Not Actually Much to Do with Rock And Roll Hall of Critic Validation.

I mean, Blue Öyster Cult isn't there. Never Even Been Nominated so far as I can tell. And they've been doing their thing for 40 years. You don't have a Rock and Roll anything if you don't have Blue Öyster Cult.

No KISS. I don't like their politics either, but their stage presence alone should have earned them a place over any Rap or Disco act.

No Weird Al? Clearly someone is taking themselves far too seriously. Forchristsakes, people, you're in godsdamned Cleveland. You'd have to move to Peoria to be Less Rock and Roll.

No IRON MAIDEN? Seriously? I was kidding about BÖC (some) but to have a place that honors Legendary Rock and Roll acts that doesn't include Iron Maiden is to have a hall of Deserts with no Sand. It's the Man of the Year, Eunuch division.

No Stevie Ray Vaughn. No Warren Zevon? I mean, say what you like about Journey as music for women to sing poorly while drunk, but on a technical level, they surely belong in there before any Rap or Pop group. Devo? Peter Gabriel, Jethro Tull, Yes? I get it, Critics hate Prog Rock. fark Critics. They suck.

This isn't a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. It's a Music Critic Hall of Wanking.

Rush fan and musician here. Like all musicians I know, don't give a single crap about whether or not Rush is in the RRHOF.

Here's to hoping they don't show up for it and shatter the illusion of integrity.

Once again, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inducts artists who have nothing at all to do with rock and roll music.

Ensuring Jimmie Johnson finishes 43rd in every race next season? :)

Just remember, Nirvana becomes eligible in 2014 thanks to releasing an album in 1989. I hope that they induct them along with ANY 80s hair metal band who's career was destroyed the moment Nevermind was released.

About goddamn time Rush and Heart got in.

Nice to see Public Enemy get some respect too.

Atomic Spunk: Once again, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inducts artists who have nothing at all to do with rock and roll music.


Neil Young predicted this back in 1995. I eagerly anticipate Creed being inducted in 2022, Nickelback the year after that, and Britney Spears the year after that.
 
2012-12-11 04:56:31 PM
Albert King is just now getting in? WTF?

No problem with PE being recognized - their influence goes well beyond rap music I don't think you can say the same thing about Donna Summer - I guess she has a couple of songs that were covered by other bands outside of disco (I think that has more to do with Giorgio Moroder than with her)

Rush, Public Enemy, Donna Summer, and Randy Newman. That's going to be one hell of a closing jam.

That "She Watch Channel Zero" sampled Slayer's Angel of Death really really blew me away when I first heard it. This was before the rock/rap crossover was a big thing (*Blondie's Rapture not withstanding).

the rock and roll hall of fame is a joke. Now all these bands get to pay a huge amount of money for the honor of going to their own celebration. It's the disgusting epitome of what mainstream rock has become
