First Madonna, now rap. Rap is basically stealing other people's music and making disgusting rhymes. Yeah, that takes talent.

R&R Hall of Fame is just the McDonald's of music awards now.

I guess the credibility of the hall is summed up in the omission of Stevie Ray Vaughn.

Rush will never be inducted because, first & foremost, the nominees should not suck. It's written right there in the rule book.

On the other hand, who can listen to Iggy & the Stooges without grinning?

....Yeah, you might want to take a gander at the nominee list again. There must be a huge back door, cause a LOT of "Suck" has snuck in...

Not disagreeing wih you per se, it was just the thought of Rush that kept slamming me in the head. Knee-jerk reaction.

I heard Run DMC on MTV the other day saying they boosted Aerosmith's career with this song. Bullshit...Aerosmith is a legend and ummm sold way more records than "Tricky". I used to have respect for you guys, but you shouldn't compare your superficial pop rap to rock legends. I guess rap is all bluffing anyway right?

They are correct. Aerosmith was already a drug-addled corpse before Run DMC revived them. It was after that they truly became "legends." Steve Tyler has admitted it himself.

The RR hall of Fame is pretty much a sham but i think it would be kind of cool if they got Dave Mustaine to Induct them!

Aerosmith deserves to be in the Hall of Fame. His "Walk This Way" is one of the best! And the modification of this song with Run-D.M.C. was not bad at all.
