I’m happy Cure and Roxy are nominees but pissed Soundgarden still isn’t in coming off Heart’s tribute performance at this year’s ceremonies.

My votes:

Kraftwerk                 Insane that a band so phenomenally influential isn't in
MC5                         Same as above, with completely different followers
The Cure                  Same again, and with yet another massive following list of bands again
Radiohead                Not as influential, more singularly dynamic. They could wait and it would be fine
John Prine                 More influential than people seem to know with the folk rock and alt country sets

Honorable mention to Rage, but they didn't sustain their influence. But certainly did influence. They were great, but sadly a lot of their followers sucked.

I lost faith when they didn’t even nominate JP this year. Dumb institution. We all know the bands that deserve to be there more than others without having limited inductees every year. If they were honest they’d induct every worthy act their first year of eligibility.

If it's so dumb then it's pointless being bothered about it.

None of my very favourite bands will ever make it in, so I don't care.

I’m bothered by their potential to not be dumb and the boatloads of attention they command. Dumb things can be very bothersome, and I will ignore them where I can (so likely I will ignore rrhof from now on unless they step up their game), but something being dumb does not always mean I can ignore it. And honestly, I’m not as bothered by the rock hall as I probably sound. I have so many better resources for music discovery, appreciation, discussion, etc. I just happened to realize yesterday quite how dumb the rock hall is, as if not inducting Yes at the very least the first year after Chris Squire passed away (which is already absurdly late) shouldn’t have proved it to me years ago. Now I’ve come to realize I really disagree with their methods and will no longer bother with them for this reason.

I was in a group once that created their own hall. Since its just the opinion of a specific group, why not our group. We voted for initial inductees, and then we did every year after. Or maybe it was Every 5 years starting like 1950. It was a good idea, because obviously the hall doesn't representour opinions.

Tough group of nominees to pick from, really.  They're all deserving of recognition as major influences, I think.

It's for her solo work which is different than what she did with Fleetwood Mac.

Very surprised Def Leppard isn't in yet. Their hits from back in the day were so huge and are still very well known today. The amount of albums both Pyromania and Hysteria sold should have made them a lock years ago.

You know you're getting older when a band like Radiohead whose popularity was at its peak back when I was in high school is eligible for the hall.
