The "Rock and Roll Hall of Fame" is by far and away THE biggest crock in all of music.  It's a complete sham.

*waits for all the replies about how certain musicians should be in there who aren't, and how some are in who shouldn't, yadda yadda yadda.....*

I'm just appreciating the current inductees, folks.  Of course a million other people ought to be in there!  And some oughtn't, maybe.

Not posting this to prove anything, just wanted to share a smile, if possible!  :)

Hey facts are facts!
Although it is nice to see acts like Donovan, the Faces getting inducted. 

And I can see how Guns N Roses, the Beastie Boys and the Chili Peppers deserve to be there.  I mean hell without them... there'd be no Rush, no Jethro Tull, no KISS, no Yes, no Deep Purple.................. ;D

Biggest sham ever that RnR HOF ;D. One would hope that one would take the use of that name somewhat seriously.

I look forward to the day when Rush and Yes are 'inducted' and they just give 'em a royal /crotch chopping motion/ or whatever act of rebellion fancies them at the time.

The "Rock and Roll Hall of Fame" is by far and away THE biggest crock in all of music.  It's a complete sham.

The Grammy's are definitely a bigger crock. There's always some quality acts that get in the hall every year, and it's great that they acknowledge influential artists like the Ramones and Tom Waits, who don't sell as many albums like some acts do.
That's motherfuckin' John Oates!

Good to see The Faces get in...mad underrated.

And I guess Im in the minority, but Id put GNR in over Rush, Yes, and Jethro Toll

my days of arguing about Rush are over, but these stats are mind boggling, even more so as a non member of the RNRHOF (sort of the BCS of music)

Rush possesses 24 gold records and 14 platinum (3 multi-platinum) records. Rush's sales statistics place them third behind The Beatles and The Rolling Stones for the most consecutive gold or platinum studio albums by a rock band.

Be the cliché you want to see in the world.
