You know what I don't fucking understand? How Iggy hasn't been inducted yet. The Stooges were nominated this year (not for the first time, either) and got passed over in favour of Van Halen.
(Hopefully that'll teach em. But I wouldn't count on it.)
Also, Lou Reed? Been inducted TWICE! As a solo artist and as a member of the VU. But Iggy? Not once. Not as a solo artist or a Stooge. Bowie's in there, Blondie, the Ramones,The Clash, Talking Heads... all in. No Iggy.
Love Patti and love REM but, seriously, fuck the Hall of Fame.
