I nominate the 1980's metallica for the rock and roll hall of fame, anything after the black album is crap.

Well, Metallica and Run-DMC are OK in my book to be in the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame. As long as they promise to leave out that stupid wanna be bassist who played for Ozzy in the Metallica part. And when I mean leave him out, I don't mean take his name off the gold Metallica plaque. I mean don't even invite him to the Metallica Rock N Roll HOF inductions and make sure Jason Newsted is with the Band instead. And of course make it perfectively clear that the Metallica being in ducted into the Rock N Roll Hall Of Fame is the Metallica from 1981-2000. And if you want, go ahead and invite Dave Mustane as long as he promises not to do anything stupid during the inductions. Since unlike Rob Turij, he should be recognized as part of Metallica even though he was kicked out of the band after they made thier first album.

And if your going to put RUN-DMC in the Rock N Roll Hall Of Fame. Then you gotta put in the Beastie Boys and Whodini in as well. And maybe even Sean "P. Diddy" Combs. But defenitally the Beastie Boys.

Kiss isn't in yet. Man that's gotta be the one band who deserves to be in the Rock N Roll Hall Of Fame that isn't more then anyone. Oh well, it's prolly because in the song "Detroit Rock City" they said they were from Detroit, when in reality they are from New York. But either way in my book Kiss deserves to be in the Rock N Roll Hall of fame because they were so much more then just another glam rock show band.

No way dude, Metallica rocked the house from 1990-2000. They clearly didn't start sucking till they got rid of Jason Newstead for a big fat nobody.
