Wow, what a lineup. A few no questions - Pearl Jam, Journey, Cars, Zombies, Baez, JJ, Depeche Mode, ELO and probably Tupac given his lasting influence. I do expect MC5 and Steppenwolf and YES to get in eventually.

19 acts that all should have made it in before KISS.

I'm no KISS fan but they were always going to get in.

One of my favorite pure cheese songs is Heaven's On Fire. It's just raunchy and stupid that I dig it.

Re: 2017 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominees

It would be a travesty if Depeche Mode got inducted before The Cure or The Smiths. I find them whiny and monotonous.

I'd go with :

ELO
Jane's Addiction
Janet Jackson
Pearl Jam
The Cars

Plus you just know they will feel they have to pick one disco act, either Chaka Kahn or Chic.

Journey is the interesting one, a bubble gum pop band that was super-successful with staying power.

I've never even heard of Bad Brains.

Re: 2017 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominees

Bad Brains were an early black punk band out of DC, i think.

my picks would be any 5 that does not include Pearl Jam

"Bubble gum pop band"? Journey? They started out as a weird prog/jazzy/blues thing and ended up as 80s FM rock a la Foreigner, Styx, etc. I don't think anyone would refer to them as "bubble gum". They weren't exactly the Bay City Rollers.

If I had to choose (not necessarily my favorites):

Depeche Mode
Electric Light Orchestra (ELO)
Journey
Pearl Jam
Yes

Re: 2017 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominees

Yeah, maybe Bubble Gum Pop wasn't what I meant. Just very commercial pop-rock that was dismissed by critics. I mean if Hall & Oats got in, I can live with Journey getting inducted as well.

Journey absolutely deserves to be in there. They had their own Atari 2600 game!

To add to this, I believe they were one of those bands who were more influential than popular. I recall many metal bands listing them as an influence.

No Iron Maiden?

Yes

And Chic? Again? They just won't give up, will they? The other nominees could be Bobby Sherman, The Starland Vocal Band, Insane Clown Posse, The Chipmunks, The B-Sharps, and Nickelback and Chic STILL wouldn't get voted in.

Re: 2017 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominees

I admit I'm not too well versed in her pop genre, but did Janet Jackson really do that much, or Jane's Addiction, for that matter?

Not a clue. Both are major influences on bands many enjoy today.

Probably just a matter of time. They'll get to that era eventually.

For my money The Cure was a first ballot Hall of Famer. A no-brainer (so even I would be qualified to say that they deserve to be in).

I'm more personally attached to Iron Maiden, Ronnie James Dio, and Judas Priest, but I absolutely recognize the quality and influence of The Cure. (I can't stand them, for the most part, but I do recognize well written songs when I hear them.) All of those groups/artists should already be in.

Janes Addiction were a major part of the early 90s alternative music. They (or at least the singer) started Lolapolooza.
