I, for one, am mostly surprised they managed to resist the siren call of nominating the Dave Matthews Band.

Before they were nominated last year, Radiohead gave an interview where they discussed their disinterest in a potential Rock Hall induction. “I don’t care,” said Jonny Greenwood. “Maybe it’s a cultural thing that I really don’t understand. I mean, from the outside it looks like... it’s quite a self-regarding profession anyway. And anything that heightens that just makes me feel even more uncomfortable.” While Thom Yorke, Philip Selway, and Ed O’Brien also sounded apathetic, Colin Greenwood said, “I’d be grateful if we got in.”

Members of the British punk rock band The Sex Pistols, inducted in 2006, refused to attend the ceremony, calling the museum "a piss stain" and "urine in wine".[49]

Allen (etaeoe), Tuesday, 9 October 2018 16:00 (four months ago) Permalink

On March 14, 2007, two days after that year's induction ceremony, Roger Friedman of Fox News published an article claiming that the Dave Clark Five should have been the fifth inductee, as they had more votes than inductee Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five. The article went on to say "Jann Wenner used a technicality about the day votes were due in. In reality, The Dave Clark Five got six more votes than Grandmaster Flash. But he felt we couldn't go another year without a rap act."[46]

Life really is pretty great. What a treat to sit back and think about how grateful I am - that we all are - to have had such great rock and roll acts entertaining us throughout these years. Rocking, rolling, making us feel what they feel and have a great time doing it! We salute you, Def Leppard, Devo, Janet Jackson, John Prine, Kraftwerk, LL Cool J, MC5, Radiohead, Rage Against the Machine, Roxy Music, Stevie Nicks, The Cure, Todd Rundgren, Rufus & Chaka Kahn, and The Zombies!!! It's too hard to pick a favorite! THANK YOU for rocking us through these years and hopefully for many more to come!! Rock on :)

MC5 probably due to their very short career? They seem to value bands for longevity.

Still surprised that Motorhead aren't in, along with AC/DC and the Ramones they're probably the most emblematic/canonical/iconic "rock 'n roll band" you could think of. Also, Stevie Nicks seems an odd choice, her solo career is even more of a footnote to her band than, say, Sting, Don Henley or Phil Collins. I can see the gender angle but Kate Bush would seem a lot more obvious. Anyway, it's always been difficult to see any consistency in these nominations.

That's an interesting comment; I don't think of Motorhead as "canonical" at all, at least in the Jann Wenner/rockcrit/RRHoF sense. I never heard about them growing up, reading rock mags, etc., and even as an adult I mainly only hear about them on places like ILM (or when Lemmy is in the news for something weird). I think of them as a long-running "cult" band that gets little mainstream attention, at least in the U.S. -- I couldn't even name one of their albums.

brush ’em like crazy (morrisp), Tuesday, 9 October 2018 16:53 (four months ago) Permalink

Yes odd - worldwide they were huge right up to the end. I had tickets for their last (obv cancelled) tour in an arena that booked Celine Dion, Metallica etc. They even had their own ski's.

Οὖτις, Tuesday, 9 October 2018 17:03 (four months ago) Permalink

those pricks inducted Bon Jovi because they supposedly had enough Springsteen type roots rock in their glam sandwich, even though they were basically the Jack Morris of '80s pop metal. Def Leppard were the true kings. Motorhead of course was huge, as canonical among hard rock fans as AC/DC and the Ramones, i think. they just didn't have the radio hits (though you hear them more and more now, and i think they'll get in eventually.)

omar little, Tuesday, 9 October 2018 17:07 (four months ago) Permalink

But Motorhead was never really a metal band, all their stuff is essentially 1950s rock 'n roll played on 10. They're really much closer to AC/DC and the Ramones than to say Maiden or Priest.

Siegbran, Tuesday, 9 October 2018 17:07 (four months ago) Permalink

they ignored hard rock for a long time, only relenting for no-doubters like AC/DC, Sabbath, and Led Zep.

I've been on an island with RATM for years now. I think they're maybe the most unjustly denigrated band of the past two decades. I don't know why everyone else derives so much glee from shitting on them (I mean, partly I do, it's the whole agitprop-for-fratbros thing) but I think they kicked fucking ass.

evol j, Tuesday, 9 October 2018 19:00 (four months ago) Permalink

I'll be voting for the Cure, Devo, Kraftwerk, Radiohead, and I don't know who else. Maybe the MC5, though I don't actually love any of their official albums and Wayne Kramer's autobiography was surprisingly dull. The New Year's Day 1970 show that used to be available as Teen Age Lust and is now part of a live box set is better than anything they released in their creative lifetime. Fuck Def Leppard forever.

I must have looked away during Stevie Nicks's solo career. I like "Edge of Seventeen" and the song she did with Tom Petty. I know nothing else.

My list of people who warrant induction twice would be very small. John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Michael Jackson, Neil Young, Lou Reed, and probably Eric Clapton (for the Yardbirds and Cream, not necessarily for his own albums, although I guess Layla counts as an Eric Clapton record). I've probably forgotten somebody. When Beyonce and Justin Timberlake go in twice, I'll be happily dead.

but when the time came rundgren could be sincere, could write a love song, which zappa could never bring himself to do. god, what do you think zappa would have made of something like "healing"? and certainly zappa never could have written something like "just one victory".

Rod Steel (musicfanatic), Wednesday, 14 November 2018 23:58 (three months ago) Permalink

one month passes...

“Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Class of 2019 Inductees” (RockHall.com). The Zombies: two effectively Beatle-style Top 10 hits in 1965 (think of “She’s Not There” and “No Reply” — which one disappears in the face of the other?) and another one, boring even if the radio loves it, four years later. But when the Shangri-Las — “Remember (Walking in the Sand),” “Leader of the Pack,” “Give Him a Great Big Kiss,” “Out in the Streets” and “I Can Never Go Home Anymore” — three of them Top Ten in 1964 and 1965, one of them Number One, all of them not merely hits, but iconic — have never been nominated, let alone voted in, how can this mean anything at all? I don’t know if Janet Jackson or Def Leppard would agree, but I’d bet Stevie Nicks and Bryan Ferry would.

This made me laugh, because I've seen the same point made a thousand times in relation to Barry Bonds and/or Roger Clemens. I've always resisted the formulation when applied to baseball because, agree or disagree, I've always known why Bonds and Clemens have not (yet) been voted in--it's not some inexplicable mystery.

When it comes to the Shangri-Las, he may be onto something.

i think he also just shit on "no reply" (tho, as so often with greil, you can't always be sure -- i assumed for years he hated the faces because of a line in his old rod stewart essay that seemed like a dismissal, but he said recently in the ask-GM column that he loved them).

somehow i'd missed that the shangri-las aren't in the hall of fame -- that's inexcusable.

(The Other) J.D. (J.D.), Thursday, 27 December 2018 20:58 (one month ago) Permalink

I thought he was being out and out dismissive of the Zombies, describing the first hits as "effectively" Beatles-esque before bringing in the genuine article for comparison (BTW, were the Zombies included in his discog in Stranded? Don't have a copy anymore to check.) Which is classic Greil down to how off-base it is as an argument--I get a feeling he hasn't heard much else of their work since it was new, and if he had, perhaps he'd realize there was way more to the band than the three hits.

He's right that The Shangri-Las should be considered, although it's understandable that they haven't given the bias of the voting body towards Rock vs. Girl Group Pop. Looking at the inductees list (and discounting the Supremes and Martha & The Vandellas, because MOTOWN), the Shirelles ('96), the Ronettes ('07) and Darlene Love ('11) are literally the only performers from the genre that have made it in.
