PostSubject: Rock and Roll Hall of Fame   Tue Apr 28, 2009 12:12 pm

Being a bit Wiki-happy earlier, I was reading through the article on the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and subsequently the list of inductees. And on more than a few occasions as I scrolled through this page, I let out a tormented WTF at the inclusion, or indeed lack of inclusion, of some artists. As I'm sure you're all capable of clicking on this link, I won't have to repeat it, but what are your thoughts on this? Are there any artists on there that stand out as being completely out of place (Rod fucking Stewart and Van Halen for me), any really obvious exclusions (no New Order, no Love, no Cure)? Also, are you of the opinion, like I am, that this is ridiculously Americanised, or is this just Anglophile paranoia?

For the record, artists can only get in 25 years after their first recording.

I've got recordings of the Doors and REM from the induction nights as Eddie Vedder inducted/performed with them on the night. The 3 songs he did as vocalist for the Doors are brilliant.

I wouldn't call the Cure rock and roll. But I wouldn't call Bob Dylan that either. Maybe they just refuse to put in really really whiney vocals.

The absence of Rush renders that list as 100% meaningless.
New Order may be many things but they aint rock'n'roll, this 5 mins 32s however is...


File alongside MC5's Kick out the jams.

New Order and/or the Cure both rate as being closer to rock and roll compared to Run DMC, or the Furious Five no? (Ain't a comparison of quality, just stylistic similarities btw).

New Order are awesome, Red. Plus, by the body's criteria "some major way influenced the music industry, particularly in the area of rock and roll", would surely count as being massive pioneers.

I've always thought Van Halen were a bit of a fucking joke band tbh.

Eric Clapton gets in there twice?

For a man who ripped off Jimi Hendrix (including the guy's afro at one point), that cunt's done well for himself.

Three times actually.

Yardbirds, Cream, solo. There's even a section at the bottom for multiple entries. Wink

What a cunt.

I'm not a fan of Clapton. I liked Cream, but it's basically the sound of 2 awesome musicians carrying dead weight around with them.

Metallica, Sex Pistols, AC/DC, Aerosmith, Fleetwood Mac, Frank Zappa, Rod Stewart, The Rolling Stones and The Beach Boys can all fuck off.

If they put The Supremes in they may as well put anybody in.

I'm not too sure whether I should include Frank Zappa, actually.
Freak Out is an awesome album, but considering the massive amounts of music he put out over the years, you'd expect a few more good albums.
The rest are all a bit naff IMO.

Stones deserve to be in there Spatch-face. I don't rate them personally, but you can't really argue about them being there. Same with the 'Pistols.

And the Beach Boys are just class, dude.

Yeah, I'm just going by personal taste really.
I like a few Beach Boys tracks, but on the whole they never really impressed me much.
Surf's Up is lovely though.

I saw Brian Wilson live back in '07. What a fucking legend, fella. The dude might not be able to stand up anymore, but those tracks are so brilliant.
