Bathia_Mapes: No, Paul Stanley. The correct answer is The Beatles. And you will NEVER, EVER been as good as them.
gilgigamesh: Stanley, who has been making the media rounds to publicize the opening of a new branch of his Rock & Brews restaurant chain, questioned the legitimacy of the hall itself."Look, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is marketing," he said, without a shred of shame or even remote understanding the irony of such a statement .FTF the article.
Mugato: Well at least they're rock. They have rap acts in that farking thing.
Mole Man: Also when the heck is Cheap Trick gonna be inducted?
STRYPERSWINE: KISS can play circles around Nirvana, look much better while doing so, and the songs are a lot more fun.
Wasteland: downstairs: AIC isn't yet. First album was 1990, the rule is 25 years from their frist release. So that would be 2015. As it stands in 2013, your first album needed to be released in 1988 or earlier. Also Nirvana's first album was 1989... so they'll be the first grunge act to go in.Soundgarden would be eligible a year sooner than Nirvana; Ultramega OK was released in '88.
mafiageek1980: jj86: RRHOF is a joke. Justin Bieber will be inducted before Chicago, Journey, Styx or Kiss get in. Public Enemy? Really? Who's next? Eminem? They're a joke.Hmmm, where's the "not this shiat again" meme when you need it (regarding Rap being part of the hall)?Say what you will about the RRHOF and their ODD choices (I will NEVER understand why ABBA is in there) for the hall/those who should already be there, but to NOT include rap would not do the hall justice. Same as if you left Blues out of the Hall. Rock n roll has been influenced by and has influenced MANY different music genres. and like it or not, RAP/Hip Hop has a role in the hall. So far, they are doing pretty decent with the choices as far as Rap/Hip-Hop goes.in other words, STFU about rap not belonging in the hall. The argument is getting old.
AdolfOliverPanties: FirstNationalBastard: Oh, look, a music hipster thread where everyone can masturbate about how Neil Peart's wanky, pointless drum solos are the best thing evar and find out which bands they should no longer be listening to because a second person has heard of that band.Everyone point and laugh./Kiss should be in the rock and roll hall of fame. If they let Rush in, anyone can make it in.Of all the ridiculous members of the RRHOF (Madonna, for example) and you chose Rush to make your point?I shudder to think what you must listen to.
TheJoe03: John Buck 41: Why would a rap group want to be in? Any more than a rock band would want to be in a Rap HOF? Serious question.Is there a hip-hop hall of fame? Anyways, when they let Madonna in you should have realized it wasn't a HOF strictly for rock but the post-rock modern era of popular music. It's also funny to me to see the purists get so bent out of shape about it.
puddleonfire: The R&R HOF has NO CRED whatsoever.Run DMC and Public Enemy?COME ON.
Coco LaFemme: SoupJohnB: Bathia_Mapes: No, Paul Stanley. The correct answer is The Beatles. And you will NEVER, EVER been as good as them.I concur. In *greatest* rock and roll band debates, I've never bitten on any "Yeah, but..." discussions. They're all endless loops. I simply say, "Listen. There were the Beatles; and then there was everybody else."/some people get agitated, but also understand that I'm not being pedantic arse-hole about it//I'm just fixing a hole, where the rain gets inI like some of their stuff, but I'd pick the Stones over the Beatles. The Beatles are the guy you bring home to meet your parents. The Stones are the guy you fark in the alley behind your parents house.
Coco LaFemme: As a Pink Floyd music fan, I must vociferously refute Mr. Stanley's assertion that KISS is the best band in the universe.
FirstNationalBastard: Oh, look, a music hipster thread where everyone can masturbate about how Neil Peart's wanky, pointless drum solos are the best thing evar and find out which bands they should no longer be listening to because a second person has heard of that band.Everyone point and laugh./Kiss should be in the rock and roll hall of fame. If they let Rush in, anyone can make it in.
