Rock n Roll Hall of Fame

It's that time of year again when the nominations are in for the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame. I hate to say this, but I this is probably the least excited I've ever been about a list of possible inductees.

Which five do you want to see make it in?

  • Chic
  • Dave Clark Five
  • Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five
  • R.E.M.
  • Ronettes
  • Patti Smith
  • Stooges
  • Joe Tex
  • Van Halen
I cast my vote for Van Halen, Patti Smith, REM, The Ronettes and ????

Patti Smith, Van Halen, The Ronettes, REM and The Stooges. Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five shouldn't even be nominated, in my opinion. They're hip hop, NOT rock. You wouldn't induct Led Zeppelin into the hip hop hall of fame, would you? Of course not.

I agree with Russ. How is it that a non-rock band gets nominated for the ROCK AND ROLL Hall of Fame??

Either way, VH and REM should be in there the first time around.

Frankly, it's all moot, because the R&R HOF is a joke when it comes right down to it.

I say REM, Stooges, Patti Smith, Grandmaster Flash, and the Ronettes.

I would choose Chic with your 4 choices Layla.

Interesting conversation. I guess the R&R H of F is a tad contrived...

But its still fun to watch the show! The best one for me was watching Bono give the speech about Bruce, it was classic!

Hmmm.....this just gave me an idea for another post. Stay tuned :)

REM
Van Halen
Patti Smith
The Stooges
Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five

If Patti Smith doesn't make it in again this year then that is ridiculous.
