Nine Inch Nails wasn't nominated

an artist has to be nominated to get another shot, or else Kraftwerk would be in the running again

honestly the fact that Sister Rosetta Tharpe is still waiting to be included instead of having been among the first batch of inductees is a disgrace

tl;dr blame Jann Wenner for most of the obvious nominees for either getting ignored (King Crimson) or not getting enough votes from the committee and/or fans (The Cars, Nine Inch Nails)

If we all stopped pretending the Rock Hall has any credibility then maybe people will start to see it as a sham

The Cure and The Smiths aren't even in it yet ffs

again, take it up with Wenner and the Committee - also an important detail, Wenner usually ignores specific genres and/or specific persons.

I mean, the Rock Hall is a glorified secret club, that's not even up for debate

Radiohead have to be in, even if that means someone who should've been in/I thought was already in has to miss out.

Moody Blues are a 100% shoo in. Radiohead is also a shoo in. Priest deserves it too, alongside Annie Lennox/Dave Stewart and Depeche Mode.

"also do people still complain about 'non-rock' artists getting in? rock is a genre, but this is about rock nd roll, which is a lifestyle/personality/movement instead"

Ohh come on, thats like when people say 'Punk isnt a genre, but its a lifestyle instead'

I do understand peoples gripe with inducting Hip-Hop artists in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. If there was a hip-hop or a country hall of fame, and Metallica got nominated into thier hall of fame because of their movement or whatever, fans of that genre would understandably be pissed.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is a joke though.

"How is Judas Priest not in the hall of fame already?"

These are the same guys who haven't inducted Slayer or Megadeth yet. So who knows.

"punk literally is a movement/lifestyle/culture, don't be retarded dude"

I am not disagreeing that punk is a lifestyle, but it is also literally a genre of music. My point was when people think "Rock and Roll", they don't think of the movement/lifestyle/culture, but rather the genre. I highly doubt the Hall of Fame uses the movement/lifestyle/culture of rock 'n roll for their nominations, but rather they use their contributions to the genre of rock and roll instead.

Hairbands were pretty much the nu-metal of the '80s, if Bon Jovi and their ilk get in then how is that any different than letting Korn and Limp Bizkit in the 2030s

Whats wrong with Korn getting in the HOF in 2030? But yeah, I wouldnt be surprised if Limp Bizkit eventually got in the HOF in 20 years
