you must be kidding! i agree with most people on here that old school rap should be in another hall of fame. run dmc belongs there. i cant say anything bad about him, but he just doesnt belong in the rock n roll hall of fame. there are way too many people and bands who are being left out every year who deserve it more than those in the list.
Ever notice that they have the black music awards, whereas white proformers cannot enter. Remember, only white folks can be racist, blacks call it ethnic pride.

The RRHOF obviously is a joke nowwadays....

The fact that KISS are not in is a complete insult to rock & roll in general, yet Madonna and Run DMC, two acts that have never recorded a rock and roll tune EVER are in...The RRHOF now is so bad that it is funny. Leonard Cohen.....LEONARD COHEN!!!!!!!!ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!!!!!That dude belongs in the lounge lizard hall of fame.....Love em' or hate em', Rush should've been inducted in as soon as they were eligible. That is one group that has influenced THOUSANDS of bass guitarists and drummers...ANd if you are going to induct rappers and black artists, WHERE THE HELL ARE KOOL & THE GANG AND ONE OF THE BEST SOULD GROUPS EVER....EARTH, WIND, & FIRE!!!!!!

The hall is bogus. I'd love to see a band inducted and then tell them to stick it.

I think bands should just start doing what The Sex Pistols did to the so called "Hall of Fame" It is a complete joke.It's more like "The Rolling Stone Magazine Hall of People we Like".
