I like to rock and roll part of every day. I usually have errands. I can rock and roll from like one to three.

I wanna rock and roll all day, and party every night.

Repeat 50 times, call it a song and 50,000 mouth breathers howl, sing along and light their Bics.

SoupJohnB: JK8Fan: silvervial: Coco LaFemme: I 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.

That's the misconception a lot of people have about the Beatles vs. Stones, but it's not true. The Beatles were hard core before the Stones. They were drugged to the gills and rocking in Hamburg before the Stones, they were farking everything that moved in Germany before the Stones. They wrote songs for the Stones, they taught the Stones a lot of what they'd already learned by working in the grit and dirt of a German port city.

It was Brian Epstein who figured out that, while he was seriously attracted to their black-leather bad-boy real selves, the band and himself would make shiatloads more money if they literally cleaned up their act. They had one way to make money, but their sensibilities had been formed an entirely different way by grubbing about in Germany during their formative teen-age years.

Besides, for some reason, people believe that the Stones were the dangerous street toughs and the Beatles the good little middle class kids. It is actually quite the opposite. The Beatles were poor kids from Liverpool that were cleaned up and marketed by Epstein. The Rolling Stones were the middle class Londoners.

The "Mods" and the "Rockers" were coming into vogue, as fashion/lifestyle trends in the early "counterculture."  It always seemed to me that the Beatles went into one mode, and the Stones the other.

Actually, we have Ringo's own take on that:

Press: Are you a mod or a rocker?
Ringo: Um, no, I'm a mocker.

danielscissorhands: Snapper Carr: Also it's the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, not the Hall of Taste or Talent. Kiss has been part of pop culture off and on for the past 40 decades (hell I had Kiss lunchbox when I was wee one) - they deserve a place. Full Size

puddleonfire: The R&R HOF has NO CRED whatsoever.
Run DMC and Public Enemy?

You chose two of the most legendary and influential groups of the last 30 years to prove they have no cred? Old timer rock fans are kind of annoying.

Sometime in the '70s, the neighbor kids decided to dress up as Kiss for Halloween. Being conscientious fans, they did a trial run in September in full get-up, and went door-to-door, polling the neighborhood on whether they "looked enough like Kiss."

My immigrant father, with zero knowledge of American culture, and even less patience for fools, answered the door with his shotgun and threatened to blow their heads off if they ever showed up on his property looking like idiots again.

The Cure, The Cars, Duran Duran, Depeche Mode, Iron Maiden, and even Bon Jovi should get in before the action figure salesmen.

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.

Letting Rush in is totally a pity fark. Triumph will be asking for their pity fark in a couple of years as well.

they're shoo-ins for the merchandising hall of fame. Which should make them feel better, since that's pretty much all they seem to care about.

Lousy novelty band for simpletons and mouth-breathers.
