If Rod doesn't want to do a tour they should just do some shows with Mick because they can still bring it.

All of the speeches and performances were very good but when it came time for Guns N Roses to be inducted there was an electric vibe in the building that you just don't get very often. Billie Joe Armstrong's speech was great. He had kind words about the contributions each of the members made, although Dizzy Reed might not feel that way about what was said about him The performance was fantastic and by the time they played Paradise City the place was going berzerk! Just an amazing night all around and I feel very fortunate to have attended.

RUSH should hire a good comedian to write their induction speech.

Given that 40% of that list is dead, I'd imagine so.

I dunno... I'd sort of like to see what would happen if Rush, the Wilson sisters, Chuck D, Flava Flav, and Randy Newman were all on stage together.

Maybe Kiss should do the song-God Gave Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Too you(but not to us).

Re: 2012 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominees announced

I am not a hip hop fan in the slightest but anyone who doesn't think Public Enemy deserve to be nominated because of Flavor Flav's terrible reality shows is just biased.

Public Enemy were HUGE with critics and music geeks in the late 80s. They took hip hop to another level critically and made people see it as more than a novelty but as another means of expression. Their lyrics resonated with a generation as much as the folk songs did in the 60s.

I don't know how anyone did not see that one coming. It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back is considered one of the greatest albums of all time, and if I recall, ranked behind only U2 and Michael Jackson on the Rolling Stone 500 list.

One of the most important (not just hip hop) groups of all time.

It really is kind of sad and ignorant that the only or first thing people associate PE with is Flavor Flav. He is an important part of the group no doubt but PE had such an impact and aura about them when they were at the height of their popularity. Many great albums, songs during that time. Terminator X was such a dope DJ, the S1W's with their intimidation and the Chuck D and is hard, impactful, knowledgeable rhymes are what made PE what they are. There are many great songs from PE but if I had to choose one it would be Welcome To The Terrordome. That hypnotic beat and Chucks rhymes are a thing of beauty.

Re: 2012 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominees announced

I agree. The same people bashing PE because of Flavor Flav are the same people who complain that people slight Kiss too much because of Gene Simmons. So hypocritical.

And I must correct myself, when I said only U2 and MJ ranked higher on the RS 500 list, I meant for 1980s releases. But still, high enough that I think the only people stunned and dismayed about the HOF are people who have a serious axe to grind with hip hop and are the same people who whine about Madonna and ABBA while they don't mind 60's female one hit wonders being in there even though I think only a person filled with bias and hate honestly thinks that Lesley Gore for instance had more hits and impact than Madonna and ABBA.

They really just need to call it "The Music Hall Of Fame" instead of "The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame."

The POPULAR Music Hall Of Fame would be the most appropriate name.

No way do you get half of the groups/artists into a legitimate, purely Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame that are in this HOF. It really is a Popular Music Hall of Fame. The name is a misnomer given how it's been run since the beginning.

Strong. I thought about it. It's probably my 2nd favorite PE song.
