Re: 2016 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Nominees

Considering Chicago have been kept out for 20 YEARS PAST ELIGIBILITY, I don't get why some people are still attacking them for the 1980s pop crap.... they had their "punishment" by taking two decades...

Re: 2016 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Nominees

It only thins out if you only listen to classic rock and think top 40 is the be all-end all of modern music.

Just because you hate Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift doesn't mean they define all...

Re: 2016 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Nominees

Good post.

The sad irony, and it applies to both rock AND hip hop, and even a little pop to an extent (as in some pop acts who are viewed as more legitimate talents) is that times have sadly...

Re: 2016 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Nominees

And while I personally am not much of a hip hop fan outside of a few select artists (like Outkast or Kendrick Lamar), I find it pathetic how much people still squirm at rap music as this new fad...

Re: 2016 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Nominees

Well this is true. But it's only been in recent years when disco, hip hop, MTV era pop, etc... started becoming eligible that people really complained. Acts like Yes, Deep Purple, etc... (and...

Re: 2016 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Nominees

I do find the rockist argument amusing I'm seeing on various FB pages. People seem to be just fine if a non-rock artist gets inducted in the Hall Of Fame... as long as it was pre-1975 but anything...

Re: Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 2015 Nominees (Smiths, L. Reed, Kraftwerk, NIN, Green

I think Live From Daryl's House has gone a long way in restoring Hall And Oates' credibility, plus hipsters like them, something they'll never do with Journey. Although in fairness, The Smiths,...

Re: Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 2015 Nominees (Smiths, L. Reed, Kraftwerk, NIN, Green

True. My main problem though is that pop females (Madonna, Summer, ABBA, etc...) always draw the rockist "they're not rock!!!" ire but yet male pop stars get into the HOF without protest. It does...

Re: D'Angelo and the Vanguard -- "Black Messiah" -- Surprise Release 12/15/2014

I am surprised how great this album is. I dislike 90% of mainstream r&b, most of the stuff I like falls more into the "alternative r&b" umbrella like FKA twigs, Blood Orange, Mayer Hawthorne,...

Re: 2014 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame nominees announced

I agree. I only own "Horses" and know a handful of other songs, mostly from the 70s. But how can anyone argue that Gloria does not rock?

Re: Arcade Fire -- Fourth Studio Album -- 2013

Re: Poll: Gary Numan's "CARS", Does it suck or not?

Absolute classic. If you think this song sucks, you're not my kind of people. This song proves that you can make a great ROCK song with just synthesizers.
