I follow who gets in to the Rock N’ Roll Hall of Fame pretty closely, even though its pretty ridiculous to consider it the pinnacle of music at this point. They use “rock n’ roll” pretty loosely. The Oscar nominees are normally terrible as well, but I find the rock hall to have even less of a clue.
Here are the inductees.
- Whitney Huston
- Nine Inch Nails
- Notorious BIG
- The Doobie Brothers
- Depeche Mode
This class beat out Judas Priest, Dave Matthews Band, Soundgarden, Motorhead, MC5, Kraftwerk, Thin Lizzy, Todd Rundgren, Rufus featuring Chaka Khan and Pat Benatar.
Dave Matthews (winner), Pat Benatar, Judas Priest, and Soundgarden were the highest vote earners in the fan vote. None are inducted. I voted a few times and every single time I voted for Judas Priest, Soundgarden, Motorhead, Thin Lizzy, MC5 and Doobie Brothers. Any time you google a nominee google will give you the chance to vote daily. Only one of the groups I voted for got in.
What do you think of this years rock hall class?
