Rush snubbed AGAIN!

Tom ImpTom Imp Road Warrior
edited February 2009 in History of Rock
I know there will be those of you out there who will take the Johnny Rotten "Too Cool For School" approach and say that the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is a joke and who cares if you get in or not, but I personally find it absolutely ludacrous that once again that Rush has been passed over for induction.

This is one of the biggest and greatest bands of all time, yet as far as I know haven't even been nominated to be inducted. I may be wrong on whether or not they were even up for consideration, but either way, for them to still not be in the HOF while others who I feel are far less deserving get in is a travesty.

    Yea, the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame is a joke, but then again, it's voted for by a shadowy board of evil bastards that want you to buy something they probably have stocks in. Surprise?
    The voting process is a joke. If it was better, the museum would be great. As it is, I like the museum as a place to go see rock mementos and such, but the whole Hall of Fame concept needs an overhaul.

    I'm not that bothered about going to see rock momentos. It holds very little interest for me.

    It's more of a crime The Stooges got overlooked again, especially since they've been eligible for 15 years. The Hall is also missing incredibly important people like **** Dale (The Beach Boys exhibit last year even said they wouldn't have existed if it wasn't for ****), Alice Cooper, Deep Purple, and Iron Maiden, yet Metallica got in on first year eligibility.

    I love the museum, but **** the Hall.

    Who they include is crap. Yes isn't in either last I checked. Now, they have lots of cool instruments and outfits. But yeah, it is crap that Madonna, Micheal Jackson, other crap people are in, and yet no Deep Purple, Yes, Rush, Iron Maiden, etc.....

    I wouldn't say that Madonna and Jackson are 'crap people'.

    Rush, Yes and Deep Purple are no more 'rock 'n' roll' than Madonna and Jackson. Indeed, structurally, the 'crap' choices are a lot more like the original rock 'n' roll artists.

    Well no, the Original Rock N Roll artists like Little Richard, Bo Diddley, Chuck Berry, and Buddy Holly are the ones who created the whole genre from there influences of Blues, Folk, and many other genres from the 20's, 30's, and 40's.

    In all honesty, there's no way they could honour the right bands at all even with a 'fair vote'...

    Well, yes, because everyone is biased towards what they see as the best genre of rock..........

    Radio format, that'll do. Time period infers that all rock made during an arbritary time period would be designated as 'classic'.

    I fail to see how Madonna is closer to Chuck Berry than Deep Purple, not that any of them are really similar at all, but at least with deep purple there was prominence of guitar and some blues influence.

    I said 'structurally.' Instrumentally, yes, Purple had slightly more in common, but even then, not that much.
