Heh...I knew there'd be a post about this if I came over here. Just saw one on the Alice Cooper forum with the same sentiments about him being ignored again. Both of these acts totally deserve to be in!
Or if you want to vote for Mr. Potato Head as a write in, well...he's an extremist. He's extremely non-human.

I'm the king of rock. Smile

I can't hate on Run DMC. I love those guys. But I can hate on the bastards that don't nominate the likes of Alice & CT. I guess I've come to expect nothing less.

*reads list of acts that gave Jann Wenner enough of a boner to merit nomination*

Last year's list was more laughable, but still...

Can you believe badfinger continues to be ignored every year??????

We can only hope that one of these days, Alice Cooper, Cheap Trick and Badfinger are recognized for their incredible rock and roll.
These are three of the greatest rock artists ever!
The way the RARHOF inducts artists, it should just call itself the Popular Music Hall of Fame.
...hopefully soon we'll see the first few discs for the Trickology dvd editions. <<<(my dream quote)

The people over at the Colbert Report had it right about the RoRHoF and Rush (it's at 4:49):

Rush Not In the HoF

nice plug for the boys at Gibson Guitars...

Awesome. And so true for many of them.

What do you expect, Jann Wenner is the biggest fruitcake liberal in the world. This cupcake wouldn't know rock n' roll if it hit him in the ass, although he'd really enjoy it. :Wink:

Jann Wenner.

The more bad press he reads that he gets, the more he laughs that he has so much control of the artists that get recognized with induction. You guys should just ingnore him as if he doesn't exist. One day, he'll die (yes, the turd is mortal), and someone else that (hopefully) can recognize the talent that has long been overlooked, finds the way to get them in there. The year the hall finally lets it's own industry select the candidates for admission, AND lets them vote for them, is the year that the hall gains legitimacy, in my opinion.

I don't think Wenner likes CT - they've never gotten much press from Rolling Stone, so I'm not shocked that he's never championed them for the HOF. The Sex Pistols were right - it's a 'piss stain' when the likes of Blondie, War and The Band are considered for the honor, but a band with the longevity and prolific output of Cheap Trick are omitted. So many bands have had to reunite for their induction - Cheap Trick would just have to show up and keep doing what they've been doing for more than 3 decades.

I saw this article as well. Mats, Cooper and Cheap Trick are out. Blondie and Madonna and a bunch of other crap are in. Come on. That place gets more irrelevant every year. F them

I can see inducting Madonna and maybe even Blondie, but Run DMC and Chic for 2009 before Cheap Trick or Alice? That is ridic.
