The last time they did it it was an entire tribute to the Who, which was completely unnecessary, as they are already in the RNRHOF. Sure so was Queen, but at least they were rounded out with Priest. Vh1 tries to put out a real hard rock awards show every few years or so but it then bombs because they don't draw enough ratings. Back in 2000 I think it was my Vh1 awards.
Metal awards shows just don't bring in ad revenue and ratings.

I don't have anything against the Beastie Boys, but there has to be some artist more influential to hip hop for the time between them and Run DMC. Treacherous Three perhaps? Weren't the Beastie Boys nominated like 3 years ago only for nothing to happen?

Also, I'll be shocked if a) Alice Cooper does makes it, b) Neil Diamond doesn't make it. Those Rolling Stone faggots eat that lame soft rock "honest music" crap up. But then again for some reason Hall & Oates aren't in there either.

In regards to Alice, remember Kiss got nominated and nothing happened, which then precipitated a massive butthurt outrage from Eddie Trunk.

If the Muslims bomb the RNRHOF ceremony, I will personally volunteer to help build the Mosque by ground zero. Shit if they bomb Rolling Stone headquarters, the RNRHOF itself and the ceremony all at the same time, I'll fucking convert to Allah and pray for the death of my infidel Jewish brothers.

The biggest reason this is all bullshit is that it's entirely about commercial popularity and whose sold the most albums, not about innovation or who actually deserves the most respect. I won't even touch a lot of these, but are they seriously about to induct Bon Jovi (who I actually legitimately like, on the whole), when Deep fucking Purple still isn't in this thing? Seriously?

I kind of agree and disagree. Kiss and Red Hot Chili Peppers were up for it last year, but they didn't get in. Sure, ABBA got in and has sold more albums than them, but I don't think Jimmy Cliff or The Stooges have.

I see your point. It seems to me like commercial success only means something when it's metal/hard rock. Other genres of music are generally getting inducted based on influence and innovation.

At this point, given years of eligibility, there's absolutely no reason why all of these bands shouldn't be in:
Deep Purple, Thin Lizzy, UFO, Kiss, Rush, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, and Motorhead.

My local newspaper's blog had a month-long bitchfit that Rush hasn't even been nominated. Rush and Deep Purple are LONG overdue. When Metallica got inducted, they said they wanted Alice Cooper in, so we'll see!

Rush is ranked #3 in the amount of consecutive gold/platinum albums recieved, behind The Beatles and Michael Jackson if I'm not mistaken. You think that the people that pick this would be looking at stupid statistics like that, such as sales, ect.

That kind of makes me wonder what the hell makes an artist "worthy" of the almighty Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
