As long as she's wearing that "Like a Virgin" outfit, she can be inducted anywhere.

Come on, how many people can reinvent themselves as many times as Madonna has? I think she deserves to be in the hall of fame.

And the Beastie Boys are pioneers!

Who the he11 are the Dave Clark Five??

I give up on the so called "Rock and Roll" Hall of Fame. When bands like Deep Purple who gave us the undisputed killer rock song "Smoke on the Water," and innovators like the Moody Blues are passed over for Chic, Madonna, and The Beastie Boys, it shows where the emphasis in popular music lies. If they look good, and fit the image, producers can sell them. It is no longer about the quality of the sound!

Madonna isn't what I'd call "rock and roll," but she belongs in the hall of fame anyways. She's the absolute ruler of the pop world for anyone who listened to radio in the 80's and beyond. Anyone who "disses" madge simply doesn't know the huge scope of her work.

Is there anyone that thinks Madonna is rock? This is ridiculous.

Most who Hate Madonna... either don't know all of her struggle and comebacks to success... all of the money she has donated to a lot of different charities and organizations... or they just hate the fact that she is as open and honest about her life as she can be rather than lieing to the public like most stars and the average citizens do.... and most are plain jealous of her being able to always have a comeback and be successful....
YOU GO MADONNA!!!!!!

I don't say she has no talent, I just feel that the Rock and Roll hall of fame is just that, it should only be rock. I can see a pop hall of fame, if they had that she of course should be there.

Then who decides what is rock and what isn't? Should there be a metal hall of fame? Then a grunge hall of fame? What about an Adult Contemporary hall of fame? Rap? How do you handle cross-over artists?

Chic deserve to be in. As far as the Disco genre goes they were a cut above a lot of the other people making Disco. Extremely gifted musicians who also did some great work with David Bowie. Niles Rodgers is the main guy in the group. A true talent.

Im with you on the Moody Blues and even Deep Purple. They should be in. Im thinking maybe the Moodies more so than DP.
