What a crock - 30+ years after their first single and a huge, rabid fan base, but no nomination for Rush!!!
The Stooges... come on - not that they weren't significant, but Rush continues to tour and produce new music that matters, that people still pay to hear.
Just continues to show how little this HoF really means.
What a shame!

No, but it could be Mexico's Mana or Argentina's Soda Stereo, both excellent rock bands!
