Who the fuck are the Hollies?

Abba? :LOLFC:

Kiss and Deep Purple should take the place of those chumps.

Poking at the finer points of singular inductions in a single year will not cite the problems of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The number of bands that should've been in years ago compared to the number of "WTFs" is enough to make almost anyone vomit.

Kiss, hell fucking no.

Hell fucking yes. Their place in rock history is undeniable. Whether you like them or not.

The fact that all of the following bands have been eligible for multiple years and are not in is ridiculous:

Deep Purple
Kiss
Alice Cooper
Thin lizzy
Rush
UFO
Iron Maiden
Judas Priest
Dio

History, sure. But I can think of a ton of more influential acts that should be in before them.

As much as I hate to say it, Kiss are plenty fucking influential. Musically, not so much. But the number of bands to have been inspired by the theatrical aspect of their live show and whatnot are countless. Normally I'd be like: "Rawr! Music first!", but in this case, I really don't think it matters. Influence on bands is influence on bands, period.

I went to the RnR Hall of Fame once, place really sucked to be honest. Best part was the gift shop which had a pretty good selection of CDs.

Can't wait to see the Genesis induction where the people on the stage will inevitably talk about the Phil Collins era for 75% of the time and marginalize the Peter Gabriel era. :)

75%? That's being kinda generous to the Gabriel era. Probably more like 90%. :D

"genesis had their humble beginnings as just another english 'progressive rock' band, but they finally hit their stride under the leadership of phil collins, landing them a permanent slot in rock and roll history. with hits such as 'i can't dance' and 'invisible touch' genesis proved their worth and originality time and time again."

Ugh.

"The Stooges" = band with Iggy Pop that helped get punk rock up and going.

I've been a big Genesis fan ever since the release of their 1980 album, Duke. Before that, I really didn't understand any of their work. Too artsy, too intellectual. It was on Duke where, uh, Phil Collins' presence became more apparent. I think Invisible Touch was the group's undisputed masterpiece. It's an epic meditation on intangibility. At the same time, it deepens and enriches the meaning of the preceding three albums. Listen to the brilliant ensemble playing of Banks, Collins and Rutherford. You can practically hear every nuance of every instrument. In terms of lyrical craftsmanship, the sheer songwriting, this album hits a new peak of professionalism. Take the lyrics to "Land of Confusion". In this song, Phil Collins addresses the problems of abusive political authority. "In Too Deep" is the most moving pop song of the 1980s, about monogamy and commitment. The song is extremely uplifting. Their lyrics are as positive and affirmative as, uh, anything I've heard in rock.

American Psycho. This speech is a full chapter in the book.

EDIT: That is to say it's much longer and in-depth.

It probably also says "The reason we kept these guys out for many, many years is because of the utter faggotry that is "Supper's Ready." :money:

Since we're already way the fuck off topic, let me just say that American Psycho is one of the best movies of all time. The book is badass as well, from what I've read.

Supper's Ready is one thing I have no sense of humor about. :D

The book is SO MUCH better than the movie, I hate to say it. The way the twist is done is so much more subtle and leaves you actually wondering what happened whereas I think the movie - and not without good reason - makes you believe a certain thing. Read it (and everything Bret Easton Ellis has done, shit) if you get the chance. Favorite book by my second-favorite fiction author. :horns:

No, and I bet The Millionaires could write better songs.
