Kate Bush sucks. not rock n roll. If they think she is important then they should immediately induct Sonic Youth, Minor Threat, The Misfits, Fugazi, or any number of deeply influential rock n roll acts. The kate Bush fans I grew up with had the WORST fucking taste in music.

I love Hip Hop, but the only reason the HoF "inducts" hip hop acts is to market their bullshit to younger audiences.

Missy Elliott belongs in a Hip Hop HoF for sure.
so does Kool Herc

I love the Spinners, but I also love the Chi-lites, the Whispers, etc., all fucking amazing R&B, soul music acts, but they are not rock n roll.

SHERYL FUCKING CROW? Michale Jackson's stage guitarist and backup singer? her fucking sunny 99.1 FM adult contempo "music" was fucking hideous when it first came out and has not gotten any better. Fuck she sucks shit. NOT deserving in the slightest.

Link Wray? seminal instrumentalist, influencer. seems like a stretch though.

George Michael. Great singer, but absolutely not rock n roll in any way. Pure pop star who transformed himself intoa torch-song, cabaret singer. Beautiful songs, but a pointless induction.

truth.

sad state of affairs.

Rock n roll has been dead since Sonic Youth killed it.

It has been 40 yrs of diminishing returns since then.

the hottest shit now is NOT Hip Hop, or Reggaeton (been bumpin in Puerto Rico since late 80's)

It is Peso Pluma, and others of that ilk, ugly bastards, singing songs a bout their debauchery, first hand shit. Instead of narcocorridos aggrandizing the cartels, it is personal rug stories, like early Hip Hop.

I admire their balls, but man, I can't get into that "banda" oompah looompah, Polka rhythm shit.

case by case
minutemen sí funky bass
minor threat pinches puritanos
dead kennedys great hilarious viva jello
black flag bien
husker du no me gusta para nada
bad brains yes (early)
misfists yes
meat puppets algo
bad religion si no canta el pendejo
flipper fucking great! if he'd just shut the fuck up
a lot of this great shit was ruined by singing. kill the singers.

bachata is from the dr and became popular in the 90s. i hate that overproduced 90s basic shit.

but the old ones were just tropicsl folk music and lot of the old lyrics are about women who buy men drinks. like all the dudes are drunk and broke hahahahhaaahahaaaaaa.

it was just the guitar that reminded me but it' a different beat

The concept of a "hall of fame" for rock and roll is stupid and antithetical to rock and roll in general - if it was for popular music as a whole, I could get behind it, but yeah whatever. It's always going to more focused on popularity above influence and I appreciate every inducted band who says "these guys we ripped off should be here".

The museum is apparently cool though.

personally i have never been into music for the "stardom" shit, but a lot of people are... i think i recall from some interview or something that thurston moore in his childhood wanted to be a "rockstar".

(i was a fucking nerd and wanted to be a "mad scientist." o well...)

Around 12 years ago I made a road trip to Canton OH to see Wareen Moon inducted into Pro Football HoF and I made a pit stop in Cleveland. Visited Lake Erie, and the R,R Hlll of Fame.

There were some cool exhibits, but the biggest one you saw upon entering was a massive display of stage outfits worn by the likes of CHER, Madonna, Donna Summer, NEW KIDS ON THE FUCKING BLOCK, etc.

It made me sad to see such SHIT.

The best part was seeing the giant fake amps Neil Young used on the Live Rust tour.

I stopped reading the first post after "Kate Bush sucks".

But I think the HoF is bullshit. Why does it take seemingly forever to get the right/deserving people honored?

This place is just too cool for school. Now Kate Bush gets added to the long/growing list of great artists who are dismissed here.

Fuck me.

I adore Kate Bush, have everything by her. (That whole Stranger Things bullshit, which has made her so popular lately and most likely propelled her induction into the R&R HoF, was a horrendous misreading of "Running Up That Hill", but that's not her fault.) As Tricky said, "her music should be more treasured in [England] than The Beatles'".
