shared unit of analysis (unperson), Tuesday, 15 October 2019 12:32 (eleven months ago) link

I've already voted for Depeche Mode, Judas Priest, Kraftwerk and Nine Inch Nails in previous years, so I'll probably vote for all of them again, and then Motörhead, obviously. If I wind up not voting for any of those first four, my runners-up are the Doobie Brothers and Soundgarden.

idk how you can have something called the rock and roll hall of fame and not include thin lizzy, t. rex, and judas priest

flopsy bird (voodoo chili), Tuesday, 15 October 2019 13:27 (eleven months ago) link

Subjectively, Todd Rundgren, and, to a degree, T. Rex (though they make more sense in a British Rock and Roll HOF--they weren't nearly as iconic over here).

Objectively: probably Kraftwerk for sure, Rundgren, and I can see reasonable arguments--usually around either commercial success or influence--for Whitney Houston, Motorhead, and maybe even the Notorious B.I.G. (although he wasn't around very long). I'm not that big on Rufus/Chaka Khan, although most people think they should be in. At least one or two or three of those strike me as silly; no need saying which ones, because someone will take offense.

One third of those nominees aren't even rock music.

Tuomas, Tuesday, 15 October 2019 13:29 (eleven months ago) link

True of a few inductees (Leonard Cohen, James Taylor, etc.). I've always said it should more properly be named The Musical-Artists-Embraced-by-the-Rock-and-Roll-Audience (Whether or Not They Actually Play Rock and Roll) Hall of Fame. But that's too many words, and people will think Alanis Morissette was in charge of naming it.

clemenza, Tuesday, 15 October 2019 13:33 (eleven months ago) link

think it's now "rock" as in "rock & pop" as in "not classical or jazz" at this point.

mfktz (Camaraderie at Arms Length), Tuesday, 15 October 2019 13:34 (eleven months ago) link

They’ve always included blues and R&B artists. Now they’re including rap.

flopsy bird (voodoo chili), Tuesday, 15 October 2019 13:39 (eleven months ago) link

As I've said many times, they mean "rock 'n' roll" in the marketing-concept-meeting sense - "This new line of sneakers has that rock 'n' roll attitude our customer base has expressed a preference for in every survey." So rap, certain "edgy" country, electronic music within reason, Miles Davis, etc., etc.

shared unit of analysis (unperson), Tuesday, 15 October 2019 13:41 (eleven months ago) link

It was never callled the "Rock Hall of Fame" tbf. Based on the artists who were inducted in the first year, it's not at all clear to me that Judas Priest is a more obvious descendent of those than Whitney Houston or maybe even Notorious B.I.G. xps

All along there is the sound of feedback (Sund4r), Tuesday, 15 October 2019 13:45 (eleven months ago) link

That's a pretty flimsy concept around which to base a "hall of fame".

Before we get into further discussions, can I just add that the rock & roll hall of fame was, is and always will be an irredeemably shit idea, and it should be bulldozed and never spoken of again?

I don't think you can define it in a way that would satisfy anyone, Tuomas. Madonna is not rock and roll for some, for others she's the very definition.

Instead of announcing the nominees, they should just put out a press release that says, "We dipshittedly did not nominate Link Wray again this year."

Missing from the list in the first post: the MC5, who were actually nominated (again) this year.

Montgomery Burns' Jazz (Tarfumes The Escape Goat), Tuesday, 15 October 2019 15:30 (eleven months ago) link

I'm right on the fence with them both subjectively and objectively: love Back in the USA, not the other two albums; I think they're important on the punk timeline, but not as important as the Velvet Underground or the Stooges (or the New York Dolls, for that matter).

clemenza, Tuesday, 15 October 2019 15:51 (eleven months ago) link

If Bon Jovi, Journey, and Def Leppard are in, Pat Benatar should join them this year. People forget how many big hits she had in the 80s, and they still sound great.

― clemenza, Tuesday, October 15, 2019 11:51 AM (one hour ago) bookmarkflaglink

I'm honestly surprised -- even given how long and how rapidly the crapulence of the HoF has been on the rise -- that the 5 didn't get in earlier. They're easily as influential and important as the Velvets and Stooges, and were a big influence on the Dolls (and the Stooges, for that matter).

Montgomery Burns' Jazz (Tarfumes The Escape Goat), Tuesday, 15 October 2019 17:32 (eleven months ago) link

I agree, the exclusion of the MC5 does seem really weird. They mostly sucked, but they were inarguably influential. (Just like the Velvet Underground!) I'd like to see Grand Funk Railroad get in before them, but that's never happening.

shared unit of analysis (unperson), Tuesday, 15 October 2019 17:41 (eleven months ago) link

I don't agree with the others but wouldn't put up too energetic an argument; the Velvet Underground, though, I don't think that's even close. You can't exactly quantify influence, but except for the Beatles and Dylan and James Brown, I'd say the VU stand alone.

clemenza, Tuesday, 15 October 2019 17:42 (eleven months ago) link

The desire for more genre inclusion may be laudable, even well-intentioned. But as time goes by, I suspect hof noms will increasingly mine the same fairly limited pool of old material until insignificance.

People keep making music, of course, but there is no way to magically cause more music to have been made in 1964 or 1978 or 1985. Music history is a deep well but it is not inexhaustible.

So I will darkly enjoy watching this thread deteriorate as ppl discuss the relative merits of Fastball and Tiffany and Third Eye Blind

Sayonara, capybara (Ye Mad Puffin), Tuesday, 15 October 2019 17:55 (eleven months ago) link

Foo Fighters are eligible next year?

a bevy of supermodels, musicians and Lena Dunham (C. Grisso/McCain), Tuesday, 15 October 2019 18:05 (eleven months ago) link

They seem to be doing a fairly good job of keeping up with the times, not sure why they'd confine themselves to old material?

drunk on hot toddies (morrisp), Tuesday, 15 October 2019 18:06 (eleven months ago) link

morrisp they don't confine themselves, no, but to me it looks like they try to pull something from Bucket A, something from Bucket B, something from Bucket C.

"O wait we need a neglected influential person who died in poverty and deserves long-overdue recognition"

"O wait we need a 70s metal act to make up for the years we snubbed metal"

"O wait we need an OG rap act to make up for the years we snubbed rap"

"O wait we need to recognize a disco diva to make up for rock's appalling history of misogyny and racism and homophobia"

"O wait we need a jam band or else we'll lose that audience segment"

"O wait we haven't gotten any synthpop in there yet"

Eventually it will all have to either (a) compress into only a very narrow range of eligibility, or (b) run out of good choices for every possible bucket.

Sayonara, capybara (Ye Mad Puffin), Tuesday, 15 October 2019 18:15 (eleven months ago) link

I was very sad when the Doobie Brothers died in poverty. (I think your analysis is pretty accurate, YMP.)

T. Rex! Didn't think anyone so purely British would get in (only four Top 100 singles in the States, only one Top 10)--good job.

(Nine Inch Nails and the Doobie Brothers--kind of ridiculous.)

Doobie Brothers are more than deserving. Pete Townshend put it best...

“I’ll tell you who gets a good sound in the studio,” Pete Townshend of the Who once told a reporter, “The Doobie Brothers. Their songs seem to just pop out of the radio speakers and grab at you.”

Now they need to get Pat Benetar in. People do not remember just how many hits she had. Far more than Stevie Nicks.

kornrulez6969, Wednesday, 15 January 2020 14:30 (eight months ago) link

Still very surprised Motorhead aren't in - they're pretty much the definition of a rock & roll band.

I drove through Cleveland a few weeks ago w/ my daughters hoping to see the Zeppelin rig that was on display on the Met last year only to find that the vast majority of stuff from that exhibit didn't make it to Cleveland

When I asked why not this woman (also disapppointed) explained that while the building looks cool from the outside, making it a pyramid means the floors are too small to exhibit a lot of the things they'd like to :-/

For a few short years Jane’s were just devastating live, on that tour in particular. Just a really intense, strange energy that I’ve never seen matched on stage.

Suggest Banshee (Hadrian VIII), Wednesday, 15 January 2020 23:46 (eight months ago) link

I was curious about when exactly the RRHOF went off the rails (beyond “having a hall of fame for rock and roll”) and in YEAR 2, they managed to vote in Ricky Nelson before the Drifters or the Platters.

Why do we still have these arguments?

Nine Inch Nails leaves me cold and I don’t care about this Hall of Fame, but I know this much:

In 2019, Reznor and Ross received songwriting and production credits for the number-one single "Old Town Road" by Lil Nas X, which sampled their track "34 Ghosts IV" from Ghosts I-IV.[274] "Old Town Road" broke the record for most consecutive weeks at number one on the Billboard Hot 100.[275] As producers for the song, Reznor and Ross garnered a CMA Award nomination for the 'Musical Event Of The Year' award, along with Lil Nas X, featured artist Billy Ray Cyrus and producer YoungKio.[276]


Influence? Relevance? Country? RRHOF killing several birds with one stone here!

one month passes...

It’s really bizarre that Depeche Mode and NIN (the aggro Depeche Mode) - both deserving - get in before Kraftwerk, but I guess that’s just sales figures. What I really wanna know is why Whitney gets in when Mariah Carey, a way more rock and roll artist at the end of the day and also objectively more popular, has never even been nominated. I mean, I know it’s because Mariah is still alive. But it’s still bullshit. And how was Outkast not even nominated? They’re a shoo-in, and they were eligible as of last fall.

thewufs, Monday, 24 February 2020 04:24 (seven months ago) link

Actually I’m pretty sure Outkast were eligible in 2018- “Player’s Ball” was a Christmas single. In 1993.

thewufs, Monday, 24 February 2020 04:26 (seven months ago) link

How is Mariah “objectively more popular” than Whitney? At a glance, looks like they’ve both sold between 200-250mm albums worldwide; can each claim impressive-sounding chart records; and have each won a ton of awards (though Whitney seems to have the edge there, as she apparently holds the Guinness Record for “most awarded female artist of all time”).

Ticket Tout (morrisp), Monday, 24 February 2020 05:17 (seven months ago) link

Having grown up with both, I feel like Whitney was always on a higher plane than Mariah in terms of status and perceived artistry. (Which is not to say that you are wrong about Whitney’s HoF honor owing largely to the fact that she is deceased; maybe that’s true, I have no idea.)

Ticket Tout (morrisp), Monday, 24 February 2020 05:20 (seven months ago) link

Also not sure I agree about OutKast being an immediate “shoo-in” upon eligibility, but whatever.

Ticket Tout (morrisp), Monday, 24 February 2020 05:21 (seven months ago) link

Postmortem, Whitney is bigger than Mariah if Spotify is the metric - which surprised me. I’m just talking about raw numbers with regard to hit singles and album sales. So I’m probably fudging the numbers a little bit. My read is that Whitney Houston had massive sales and basically no respect from critics before she died in 2012. Mariah Carey had equally massive numbers, equal critical disdain giving way to grudging respect in the late 90s and thereafter once she aligned herself with the hip hop nation. And once she went hip hop she never let go, never went back, never played it off like it was just a phase. She knew which way the wind was blowing.

thewufs, Monday, 24 February 2020 05:36 (seven months ago) link

To be fair I don’t think Whitney Houston ever had that luxury, whether due to colorism or any number of other circumstances beyond her control. But even if we’re limiting ourselves to the first 10 years of each singer’s career, Carey just flat-out had more good records.

thewufs, Monday, 24 February 2020 05:42 (seven months ago) link

Whitney still not getting a whole lot of respect, I see.

ooga booga-ing for the bourgeoisie (voodoo chili), Monday, 24 February 2020 15:55 (seven months ago) link

"Just" banging drums, gtfo with that. *You* bang on a drum for 23-minutes, it's hard work! There's a reason Ringo's All-Star Band tours with another drummer, and it's because Ringo doesn't want to work, because work is hard. Besides, imagine the drum union overtime fees alone!

Josh in Chicago, Monday, 24 February 2020 16:02 (seven months ago) link

Hmm. Maybe if they switched off drummers, and limited the amount of banging each could do? There are a lot of drummers in the Hall of Fame. That could circumvent union policy *and* prevent anyone from doing too much work.

Josh in Chicago, Monday, 24 February 2020 16:05 (seven months ago) link

*You* bang on a drum for 23-minutes, it's hard work!

he doesn't wanna work, he just wants to bang on the drum 'all day.' banging on a drum 'all day' is necessarily more work than banging on a drum for '23 minutes.' but that just what he wants to do.

ooga booga-ing for the bourgeoisie (voodoo chili), Monday, 24 February 2020 16:09 (seven months ago) link

You ever heard anyone bang on a drum for 23 minutes? It might as well be all day. There's a reason I love Led Zeppelin but never listen to Zeppelin bootlegs.

Proud of my nerdery!!
Regarding Todd Rundgren I had a teacher in hs who was a superfan and decorated her room w photos of him, which was no small thing in the early 90s. I never understood it but appreciated her enthusiasm.

weird woman in a bar (La Lechera), Monday, 24 February 2020 21:59 (seven months ago) link

Like I said before, he deserves to be in for his production alone! New York Dolls, Badfinger, XTC, Psychedelic Furs, Grand Funk Railroad, Meat Loaf, many of whom had huge or unlikely hits with him behind the boards.

As a solo artist ... "Something/Anything" is pretty cool, not that familiar with everything else.

Josh in Chicago, Monday, 24 February 2020 22:09 (seven months ago) link

I don't have the list in front of me or anything but I'm guessing if I looked at great rock producers who should be in the hall of fame who aren't Rundgren wouldn't be top 20

Blues Guitar Solo Heatmap (Free Download) (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Monday, 24 February 2020 22:17 (seven months ago) link

Yeah, but I bet many of them are in the hall already!

Josh in Chicago, Monday, 24 February 2020 22:18 (seven months ago) link

Though just looking now it seems that Eno isn't in, and has been eligible since 1999. So yeah, stupid rock hall is stupid, it's a no-win.
