Really, what is the criteria to get in the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame? Metallica hasn't made a good album since the 80's. All of their "groundbreaking" music wasn't even played on the radio until after the black album hit and every suburban kid wanted to build street cred by mouthing some of the words to Creeping Death. Metallica was just the last metal band standing after grunge hit, but by no stretch of the imagination were they the best or even the most groundbreaking.

Why is Madonna's photo attached to this article when this article has nothing to do with her? It wasn't her night - it was Metallica's and Run DMC's night! Wake up Tribune!

Metalisux has no business in the HOF either, they should have left the scene after the black album

Glad to see DJ Fontana, Bill Black and Little Anthony and the Imperials make it, especially Fontana and Black who are essential guys having been there at the beginning.

The problem with these Hall of Fame things is that they become self perpetuating and feel obliged to put in new people whether new ones are really up to par or not. It would be refreshing to see one of these organizations say "No, we're not gonna put anyone in for awhile; we'll wait a few years and see who merits this".

Madonna, Run-DMC??? This is no longer the "Rock And Roll" Hall of Fame. It is simply the Music hall of fame. When Madonna was put in, this was the day the "music died!"
