It's nice to see female lead singers recognized.

When I discovered Verve Pipe wasn't inducted this year, I prepared to go downtown and light myself on fire out of protest.  Then the guy who sold me the lighter fluid informed me they're not eligible yet.  Man, that would have been embarrassing.

TypoFlyspray: 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.


But hey, Randy Newman made it this year. So there's that. When I think rock and roll, I think Randy Newman's soundtrack for Toy Story.

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.

Lemme take a second to address Rush.

I like Rush. A Lot. I enjoy their musical virtuosity enough to overlook their frequently overly pedantic lyrics and their silly flirtations with the dessicated corpse of Ayn Rand. I like their overall body of work well enough that I will even forgive them Presto.

I have seen them in concert a couple of times, and they formed a goodly chunk of the soundtrack of my adolescence. 2112, Moving Pictures, and (gods forgive me) Power Windows are among my favorite albums.

If this "Honor" had anything to do with Rock and Roll, they would deserve it.

When they were coming to Nissan Pavillion on 9/9/12, my wife really wanted to go see them, and I went out on youtube to see how they were doing lately...

I like Rush enough to have tried to sing them in Karaoke on a number of occasions (Subdivisions and Red Barchetta). As the result of concert clips from 2008, I can say that I sounded just like Geddy Lee. I'm a baritone.

Sorry, man, you're a great bassist, but time is a bastard, and he's caught up with your vocal cords.

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.


Yup...that is about the extent of it. Honestly, given their criteria there is no reason why Lawrence Welk and Liberace should not get inducted. Where is Beethoven? Why isn't Beethoven in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame?

Sorry, Donna...GTFO and try the Disco Hall of sparkly Fame.

Just for that, I'm going to track every thread you post in and add a comment about how great Rush is and how pathetic the Hall is for taking so long.

And just for that, I'm gonna put you on my favorites list.

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.

But what cause can tens of us turn our attention to? :P

Bob_Laublaw: 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'.


Will it be sweeter than this too?
