Rock N Roll Hall of Fame
 
I have recently heard that Sonic Youth has not been inducted into the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame. Is this true? Please "say it ain't so"!! What the hell is this world coming to? The worlds greatest rock band doesn't get inducted into the Rock N Hall of Fame. This must be an error of some kind. A even more disturbing rumor I heard about SY. Is that early on in the bands history they considered the band name "Sonic Baby". Are any of these rumors true?

SY not in HoF is not a rumor. They have never had a gold record (500,000 in sales) so the assholes at Hall of Fame will never pay attention.

Originally Sonic Youth went by Sonic Toddler, NOT Sonic Baby

Any institution that "honors" Bon Jovi certainly won't acknowledge Sonic Youth, and frankly I don't give a f**k either way.

Amen.

They just put Bon Jovi in, so I wouldn't hold my breath...

OR, Public Enemy said it best, " Who Gives a F**k About a God Damn Grammy?"

Rob Instigator 12.13.2018 09:27 AM

Def Leppard, Stevie Nicks Janet Jackson

Radiohead, The Cure, Roxy Music and The Zombies.




fucking RADIOHEAD! fucking RADIOHEAD!!!!!!! what shit.

God I hate this shit.

The Cure didn't get in the last few years. Now, suddenly, they are worthy. It's not like they released anything recently to remind people they're great. WTF?

And neither Zombies nor Roxy were in already?

WTF?

Did I miss some Stevie Nicks masterpiece solo album?

Ug


And how come a bunch of bands who are clearly influenced by Pixies get in, but the Pixies themselves don't? That place doesn't even make historical sense.

What's really weird is there are people on the committee who aren't total fucking idiots, like Questlove and Anthony DeCurtis. I wonder if they actually hate being there.

There's nothing less Rock N Roll than the concept of a Rock N Roll Hall of Fame

It's about as Rock N Roll as a Hard Rock Cafe


 


More like Hall of Shame, amirite?

The Cure was voted in on a FAN BALLOT, NOT by the voting committee.


The Zombies should have been in way long ago


Roxy Music (like much UK rock/pop) is not seen as worthy by the voters of the HOF, who are all a bunch of 70's stadium rock leftovers... They were also put in by fan ballot.

Granted knowing the WHOLE thing is colossal s**t show based on who-knows-what, I have to offer up my 2 cents. Stevie Nicks had a solo "Career" really? A couple of so/so singles isn't a "Career." Janet Jackson had ONE good album, not in. And using Def Leppard in the same sentence with the Zombies & Roxy Music should offend any thinking person.
