I know that the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame is really a big joke. But if the electors continue these types of shenanigans, it will lose all credibility. I mean, if it was a popular music hall of fame or something more inclusive sounding, go for it. But, if it is going to be called the "Rock N Roll" Hall of Fame. Then let's get with the program.
Seriously, Run DMC? They are not remotely related to Rock N Roll. I know there are other rap artists in there too, and they do not belong either. It is a shame that they all get in before the Stooges, Charlie Parker, John Coltrane, Sun Ra, MC5, etc.
The same goes for Metallica. What the hell is that? Eventually, yes, but there are other deserving groups and people that should be in there before them.
John Reis better get in when his 25 years comes up or heads are gonna roll.
