This list shows how stupid the people running it are. Stevie Ray Vaughn isn't in the RR hall of game but public enemy is. Phone Post

Lost interest in the RnR HOF when Iron Maiden got snubbed but Metallica got in...no slight to Metallica (big fan actually) but you can't discount Maidens significance..

It shows that "those people" are not "my people"

I had no idea SRV wasn't included....yeah, thats another oversight that shows the RnR HOF is out of touch

There are many on that list that should be in rather than others that are.


Fucking "Blondie" is in but not Deep Purple, Iron Maiden, SRV, Cheap Trick ect.

Give me a break

Everyone on this thread= correct.

Sadly, Nirvana will get in because Kurt Cobain offed himself, while bands like Kiss, Deep Purple, etc stay out

its a damn shame the bands that arent in

Deep Purple is shocking that they arent in by now

Stevie Ray Vaughn, one of the best guitarist ever isnt in?

Kiss, not the greatest musicians, but they definatley changed the rock industry, paving the way for glam, hair bands, like Motley Crue, Poison, Ratt etc.....

The fact that rap is allowed in the "Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame" alone completely destroys any hint of credibility.

No Maiden, Deep Purple, SRV, KISS, Scorpions or Judas Priest?? Come the fuck on with that bullshit. Everyone on the list posted by rushinbear should be in there long before any rapper.

What a joke.

missing king crimson and yes in your snubbies

Hell yes, The Replacements!  My favorite band!

Just last month!!  You can see J Mascis in the background watching

LL and NWA has some good rock and roll albums!!!

Madonna got inducted in 2008, that says it all right there.

Some one needs to show Peter Frampton the way. Phone Post 3.0

Not a KISS fan but I can't believe they are not in.

Or Deep Purple.  



I don't even like Kiss (I don't hate them, either) and I would have assumed they were already in.  


Hell yeah Deep Fucking Purple...crazy they are not in. Maybe they didn't have the mainstream success like KISS but musically they blow them out of the smoke on the water.
