Why would a rock n roll venue include rappers?

It is about time Deep Purple got in! The people who decide this are idiots. Why did Madonna go in before Metallica, Kiss, Rush, Red Hot Chili Peppers? It makes no sense. All of those bands are way more influential than her

We have to face it Longfellow, Rock and Metal seem to be fading away 😔. Seems like there are so few fans nowadays

Chicago just now getting in is a travesty.

I'm not that much of a fan of their Peter Cetera power ballad phase, but Terry Kath was one of the best guitarist to take a stage.  Chicago helped define the category of horn based rock bands.

Only in this America can  someone be inducted into a hall of fame of musicians and singers that DOESN'T sing or play an instrument.   

That's like being inducted into the LifeGuard HOF.......but can't swim or fit into a swimsuit.

Donna Summer, Madonna, Public Enemy, and Run DMC shouldn't be in the rock and roll hall of fame. I'm actually ok with the Beastie Boys being in their. They were a hip hop group, but had a lot of rock and roll influences and were influential for a lot of later rock artists

After looking at the list of members (Click here), well over half of the current members have no business at all being in this hall.

And on the other side of that coin......here are some that have yet to be inducted, and the # of times nominated is completely ridiculous....(sorry for the formatting.....cut/paste was not kind here)

Artist                Years Snubbed   # of Years Nominated
Bon Jovi                 6                                   1
Def Leppard         10                           0
The Doobie Brothers   18                           0
Iron Maiden                 10                           0
Jethro Tull                 21                           0
Journey                 14                           0
Megadeth                  4                           0
Mötley Crüe          8                           0
Motörhead                 12                           0

Pat Benatar                 10                           0
The Runaways         13                           0
Three Dog Night         20                           0
Yes                         20                           2

Data taken from:  http://www.futurerocklegends.com/The_Snub_List.php

Really makes me wonder what the criteria is for nomination/induction.

God help us all if/when Kanye West gets inducted.....the planet won't be able to hold him.  And heaven forbid he get nominated and NOT be inducted.......oh the humanity $%#@$%$#

It makes me wonder about the sanity of the world when Iron Maiden and Judas Priest aren't in the rock and roll hall of fame. Two of the bands who set the blueprint for heavy metal

Ozzy and Megadeth should be in there no doubt. Really any of those listed could make it.

Go ahead and take it one step further......neither have even been nominated yet!!!!

Think about it: 

'From the coast of gold, across the seven seas
I'm travellin' on, far and wide
But now it seems, I'm just a stranger to myself
And all the things I sometimes do, it isn't me but
someone else"                         Wasted Years - Iron Maiden

"So much for the golden future, I can't even start
I've had every promise broken, there's anger in my heart
you don't know what it's like, you don't have a clue
if you did you'd find yourselves doing the same thing too"
                                             Breaking the Law - Judas Priest


OR

"%%#^*$ the Police!"     - NWA



Yep, they just don't write 'em like that anymore Beavis............

Longfellow's previous post is exhibit A in why there should be separate HOF's for R&B, and Pop.

Exactly. Al Green, Curtis Mayfield, Stevie Wonder, and a lot of those others are great musicians, and I really like a lot of their music, but they need to have a different hall of fame for them

A lot of those older artists absolutely deserve to be there.  Dion is a great example - his music was considered rock & roll back in his day.  The same is true for a lot of the older artists on your list.  Many, if not all of those artists were heavy influences on later, more (what we'd consider) 'traditional' rock & roll bands.
