To complain about them getting inducted into the HoF would be like complaining about Greg Maddox, Derek Jeter or Clayton Kershaw getting inducted into the Baseball HoF on the first ballot. They check every single box. Whether they were the greatest ever at their position is irrelevant. They're getting right in.
not saying they don’t deserve to get in. I’m just sick of all these bands/groups getting in on the first or second ballot leapfrogging acts that have been nominated or eligible for years.
I get it they’re massively popular. I own their first four, but you can’t tell me they were more important or influential than Iron Maiden, Motörhead, Judas Priest, Devo or Warren Zevon. Also why the fuck aren’t the Swampers in there. All these bands should have been in years ago.

There is always gonna be a laundry list. Dave himself said he's been pushing for Bad Brains for years. Same with DEVO. He's only one vote.

The issue is, they need a massive catch-up program. Induct an extra two from those that have been nominated multiple times, without winning. Maybe an extra inductees for particular categories (Metal has been overlooked)

As long as there are multiple bands that haven't gotten in like Maiden and Devo, etc., people will bitch about anyone like Foo. (Who are completely fucking deserving)
