The Rock N Roll Hall Of Fame is a big joke!! Madonna and many others are not Rock N Roll by any way you look at it, PERIOD! Don't let the name of Rock N Roll fool you!!!

Great comments by Common Sense and Charlie. Madonna is a smelly skank. She is a slut with marginal musical talent. And her payback is that she has a daughter. Madonna slutted herself and vilified the Church and women and now she has to keep a tight rein on her daughter because she knows how slutty she was. The one who deserves the big award is her husband. The money he gets living with that slob is NOT worth a lifetime.

Once again the Rock and Roll HOF proves what a joke it really is. With all the marginal talent that they've put in there, how is it that Johnny Winter has not been elected yet?

Motley Crue? What are you smoking? I dont think Madonna should be in because she is obviously NOT rock music, but Crue? Come on, you can't honestly say that they've been influential in any way to rock music in general.

Tommy makes a good point above -- Cyndi Lauper's debut album ('83?) was one of the best first albums of all time, and since then she's continued to deliver excellent albums year after year. For her it's all about the music and the quality thereof. Her sales may slip, but the quality of her music never does...Cyndi Lauper's an artist. Madonna? As Jill so aptly put it, Madonna is an untalented, un-musical slutty pretender and poser whose sales figures should be her only reward. A travesty...the R&R H.O.F. should be ashamed of itself.

I would never villify Cyndi Lauper by putting her name in the same sentence as slut Madonna. Cyndi is a class act, has never sold herself to the devil as the slut did, and has music with meaning and an unparalleled voice. At 54 yrs of age, Cyndi still rocks while Madonna at 50, remains a street whore with a marginal voice.

Madonna is the RR HOF, AWFUL!! Where's Kiss? Where's Journey?

Without MTV Madonna would NEVER have been remotely successful!

The RR HOF can stick their ballots!

How can you put Madonna and roll-n-roll in the same sentence?
Please!!!!!!!!!!
Record sales should not a prerequisite to hall of fame status. Quality and a good understanding of where r-n-r came from and what it SOUNDS like ( how tuff is that!) should be the standard. Madodoo peeuuu never sang one rock and roll song. Is Spirit in the hall. Should be!!!

Leslie Siegel thinks Madonna should move to the UN Plaza in New York City after she is inducted, then she can say she was "Livin' Life at The UN Plaza" and maybe she'll write a novel about it like Leslie Siegel did and people will read it and forgive her for her outrageous ways when she was not "Livin' Life At The UN Plaza" seeing as she does have condo - co op problems, but as Joanna Carson said "Livin' Live At The UN Plaza" you realize that "you have arrived and are a high achiever" as Madonna will always be and now she inducted into hall of fame so what better reason for her to move her digs to 49th Street!!!!!

"Rock & Roll" Hall of Fame?? Rock & Roll? Since when, did anything put out by Madonna qualify as Rock & Roll?

What a joke.

All of those rock duds are not in Madonna's league. She is far above and beyond them. She is a Rock Goddess.

For those who didnít know that yet, all music genres are interrelated.

Right!! This coming from someone who lives where Bjork is looked at as a Goddess..

We should just move the whole RR Hall of fame over to Europe.
