Correct!! Not to mention that Metallica became a multi million record selling group with no radio play and no videos on MTV until "One" was released. And how can we forget when Jethro Tull beat out Metallica for the "Heavy Metal" group of the year Grammy. No respect.
That I could never understand. Like mosh pits are happening when Aqualung gets played. Haha!

Somehow, I don't think you get that pop is not a sub genre of rock. Rap is not a sub genre of rock.
So, you don't HAVE to call pop a subgroup of rock, because it's not. <quoted text>
Metallica should be included, not excluded. Heavy Metal is a subgroup of rock. If Metallica should not be included, then I can't figure out who you think should be in there. Qoute from not quite

Well, which one is it, man? Subgroup or not? I never said subgroups, anyway. You did, and apparantly you never read my posts very carefully. almost all hall of fames have wings. The baseball hall, for instance, has special wings for managers and umpires. Why do you have a problem with this? Look, I like Metallica FAR more than I do Madonna or Run DMC. Overall importance and impact on the genre are two of the criteria that are used to judge admission into any hall of fame. Sad to say, Madonna has more qualifications to bee in a music hall of fame than Metallica. You simply can't question that. And, before you call me a Madonna fan, read this enire post VERY CAREFULLY. As far as Run DMC goes however, even if there was a rap/hip-hop wing in the HOF, I don't think they belong.
