Rock and Roll HOF Page 1 of 1    
How come groups like Styx, Chicago, Journey, Moody Blues and Yes are not in the RNRHOF? You actually have soul artists, Easy listening artists and Disco artists in here and even The freaking Beastie Boys. This is an insult to me and I think it is very political.

Of course it's political. Rush should have been in there over a decade ago, and it took almost 40 bloody years for their efforts to be recognized by Rolling Stone Magazine. I don't see Chicago getting in and there are a lot of other bands I could see getting picked before them. A lot of the time their recognition is based on contributions to music and there are a lot of bands worthy of nomination too.

Apparently credibility isn't big on their list of priorities is it ?

Cleveland is not exactly people will visit. I would suggest the RNRHOF be more reasonable who they let in , because this has to hurt the RNRHOF gate and the city of Cleveland overall.

To answer your question. It is an insult because they are trying to fool us with having people in the Hall that do not deserve it and do not even fit the RNR genre, while keeping actually deserving people out. It is wrong and obviously political. In other words they are acting like the public are a bunch of idiots.

At the end of the day, does it really matter? You like what you like and you're free to buy and play anything you choose. While the Rock and Roll HOF is a sort of recognition, it's not going to change the world going round.

This is an insult to me

Do you mean you feel this is an insult to them (in your opinion)?

^^^ You are correct. I am thinking narcissistic. I do think it is a bigger insult to the deserving musicians that are not in the RNRHOF, but to a lesser degree the public , by trying to pass the RNRHOF as something that is genuine , when it clearly is not.

Just because you disagree with their choices does not mean the RNRHOF are wrong.

I agree. Before Rush and Heart were recently inducted, I was afraid their next inductees were going to be the likes of Celine Dion and Kenny G.

What gets me is a lot of so called"classic rock " now days was never rock to start with . If it wasn't considered rock when it was created then why is it rock now ? It isn't . Ya Eric I grew up on Judas Priest and Sabbath .

For the life of me I can't recall if the bands Judas Priest as well as KISS have been inducted yet.
It is only a matter of time for both of them, of course. They are from the same era and both are legendary.
