    Default Rock n Roll Hall of Fame Nominees 2012

    Well the nominations for the 2012 Rock n Roll Hall of Fame inductees came out today. Drum roll please. And the Nominees are:

    Beastie Boys
    The Cure
    Donovan
    Eric B. & Rakim
    Guns 'N Roses
    Heart
    Joan Jett and The Blackhearts
    Freddie King
    Laura Nyro
    Red Hot Chili Peppers
    Rufus with Chaka Khan
    The Small Faces/The Faces
    The Spinners
    Donna Summer
    War

    Here are my picks. The Cure, G-n-R, Heart, Joan Jett and RHCP.

    I'm confused with some of the nominees, as they are not "Rock n Roll" artists. Why are hip hop and folk singers nominated to the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame? If it was the "Music" Hall of Fame, then yeah, I'd agree.

    Anyway, your thoughts? Discuss.

    Erik B. & Rakim!? Really!? I mean, I think they're amazing, but I find it a little puzzling as to why they'd be included in a "Rock n Roll" hall of fame? But good for them, I guess.
    Oh, hai.


  3. Thanks!

    Really confused by that list, Donna Summer, Chaka Khan, The Spinners.... rock & roll... Seriously?

    There are people in that list who haven't made a record in 30 years.
    (not saying that they don't deserve it )

    cheers,
    misty

  5. Thanks!

    Guns N' Roses don't deserve it, purely beacuse Axl has ruined them. Before Slash & co left, they deserved it more than most. Now, they suck.

    wait, wait, wait, hold on. Guns N' Roses do deserve it for what they did for Rock N Roll. I mean, look at Appetite for Destruction and the Use Your Illusion LPs. They deserve it just for those. Now I agree that they were great before with slash, dizzy, duff, matt and even Steven Adler but don't be so quick to toss Chinese Democracy. It's a descent album and Axl still performs well live.

    He doesn't turn up most of the time, and when he does he leaves early because his drink is too cold (or something stupid, it wouldn't surprise me with him). Chinese democracy is terrible.

    There've been inductees that weren't strictly rock/rock & roll for years; Quite a few surprises!

    Out of this years list, I'd go for Donovan, RHCP, Guns N Roses and The Faces

    Power of the Planet Spotlighted!

    Isn't the 'Rock n Roll' just a nostalgic nod rather than literal one? Guns 'n' Roses, The Beastie Boys and Donna Summer I would guess.

  16. Thanks!
