    Rush and Chic dropped off the ballot for Eric B and Rakim and Rufus?

    Yes, I believe with the sum of their contributions, individually and collectively, Chic has a strong case.

    This years 'class' set.

    KISS
    NIRVANA
    PETER GABRIEL
    CAT STEVENS
    HALL&OATES
    LINDA RONSTADT

    Yeah, as Eddie Trunk points out...Kiss has been eligible for 15 years. And they begrudgingly finally get in because people aren't paying admission to the Hall to celebrate Laura Nyro(who is already in). He also points out that Nirvana is in in their first year of eligibilty. Deep Purple, Yes, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Cheap Trick...and many many more...outside looking in.

    And I want to say **** Gene & Paul because I know they will block any attempt to do the right thing re:Ace & Peter. Its the original four that are going in...and its the original four that should be celebrating.

    Hall & Oates rules all!

    And I went through their thrash and found a list that they wrote.

    Today's List

    1. Take out the garbage
    2. Pick up our suits from the Chinese Dry Cleaners
    3. Buy Milk
    4. Pay the gas and electric bills online
    5. Your Kiss

    Perhaps it is my old punk rock roots but honestly I just don't give a crap about the RRHOF. Who gets in/who gets snubbed....whatever, I have just never cared.

    I'm kinda with you on this...but still... to have bands that are/were ridiculously influential like Kraftwerk, the Replacements, Siouxsie and the Banshees, and bands that are/were ridiculously influential AND huge like The Cure and Depeche Mode be snubbed...or not even nominated. I can't help but feel just as slighted now as I was when I was a kid and I first got into these bands...as you know, it wasn't easy when you listened to things that most people didn't get. And now, as everyone looks back and it's totally crystal clear how WRONG they were and how RIGHT we were...those bands STILL get kicked in the nads.

    I could make a stupid long list of bands that have met or long surpassed the criteria met by some "artists" already in. Don't even ask Gescom to get started on a list. It's funny...I could even understand bands (that I love) like the Smiths or New Order not getting in (even though Blondie and the Pretenders did...and that's ANOTHER reason why the Souxsie thing chaps my hide, as the Banshees were more influential than both those other bands put together...but I digress). But the same year the Cure FINALLY got nominated...the freaking Chili Peppers got in. Hell...the Beastie Boys got in. Neither of which were the cause of a birth of a genre. If you wanna credit the Peppers for the rap-rock genre..go ahead. But that should be grounds for exile from the hall. Also...NWA changed the WHOLE rap game, but they didn't get in. The Beastie Boys did...but NWA didn't. And I don't even LIKE rap but I'm pissed!

    On a side note...I bet Nine Inch Nails gets in next year...but Jane's Addiction and the Pixies will be snubbed.

    Never mind KP...I think I do give a s***. Haha.

    I could give a rats ass about the Hall and it's politics...but my ass does get chafed by the exclusionary/elitist behavior. Let's call it what it is...the CRITICS Hall of Fame. For me it just refires the flames of loving all these great bands and constantly getting spit on by those who pretended to know.

    Bravewords.com > News > GENE SIMMONS Open To Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame KISS Reunion With ACE FREHLEY And PETER CRISS - "They Were Equally Important In The Formation Of The Band"

    Q: People are very curious about what lineup of the band is going to play that night.

    A: "Well, KISS is Tommy Thayer, Eric Singer, Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons. It's like, if you introduced me to your wife and I go, 'Wait, where are all the other wives?' It's like, 'Yeah, I was married to them and now I'm here.' You can argue that point and we'll figure everything out as time goes on. This one is for the fans. If the fans didn't care, we wouldn't be here. If it meant nothing to them, we wouldn't be here."

    Q: Bands often play with old members at the Hall of Fame. Are you open to the idea of playing with Peter Criss and Ace Frehley that night?

    A: "Sure, why not?"

    Q: I've heard you say in the past you never wanted to play with them again.

    A: "That was for a tour. But they were equally important in the formation of the band. When you have kids with your first wife, you give kudos. The fact you got remarried doesn't delete or minimize the important. Hey, 'You have gave birth to this thing, KISS, with Ace, Peter, Paul and Gene'."
    magnanimous ****...

    I hear you both. My my main reason for not giving a crap about it is for the reaqsons you guys stated. I realized early that RRHOF was exclusionary and elitist and thinking "How the hell did (fill in the blank) get in and not (fill in the blank)?. I have basically had contempt for it since.
