Good HoF 'Non Inductee' list:
« on: January 14, 2009, 10:13:32 PM »

http://new.music.yahoo.co...rock-n-roll-hall-of-fame/

It's been pretty well established that the RnRHOF is a *goshdarn* joke, but skipping around:

Quote
16) X: Is it an anti-LA bias? The **** Pistols couldn't play their instruments. The Ramones mastered the art of minimalism. And Patti Smith couldn't sing. Yet, X are penalized because they never sold any records? Because critics liked them? Because the Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame doesn't want to initiate contact with the letter X, explaining why XTC and X-Ray Spex have also been shut out? C'mon people, it's only a letter!

Best. Band. Ever, right down to drinking themselves  out of the game at the height of their powers. Rumors of heroin abuse swirled for years, but Exene was pretty much a fall down drunk and John Doe wasn't much better. Still tour, last show I saw was a couple of years ago, and it just made me sad. Nobody looked glad to be there, except Billy Zoom, which is odd because he never looked like he gave a *feces* in the early days. Go figure.

Quote
15) Motorhead: The Hall of Fame is going to have a hard time with heavy metal. They finally let Black Sabbath in. Before you know it, they're going to have to consider Deep Purple and Iron Maiden. They're skipping right over them and going for Metallica as their symbolic nod to the music they don't like: bands that play too loud for the gentle ears of the ever-aging rock aristocracy. And Motorhead? You think Lemmy's going to go up and there and play nice? Better give another award to some dead guy instead.

Lemmy. That is all.

Quote
25) Kiss: Ok, what's the argument here? They only did it for the money? Tell David Geffen and Chuck Berry the news. They're too juvenile? It's called rock n' roll and AC/DC and the Ramones are here. Their stage show outshines their music? Paging Madonna! Their songs are crap? "I Was Made For Loving You" is no worse than anything in the Billy Joel songbook and provably better than at least half of everything the Eagles ever committed to tape.

The pseudo intelligentsia that tried to destroy rock and roll in the '70's ALWAYS hated them, but they're *goshdarn* KISS for god's sake!

Quote
9) The Cure: Unless the really old people voting in these Hall of Fame elections finally quit or die, it's unlikely that a new generation that had their lives shaped by this generation of rockers will ever have their voice heard. We'll have to move to England to see justice carried out.

2) Joy Division: In the same generational / geographical fix as the Cure. Americans will continue to lionize Bob Seger and Bruce Springsteen and John Mellencamp for their heartland rock and turn an indifferent ear towards the working toil of dreary British factory towns. C'mon people, their lead singer even killed himself for a few more "rock legend" points. Can't you people add?

Not a huge fan of this genre, but appealing  to 3 generations of (primarily) chicks with low self esteem and budding substance abuse problems can't be all bad.

I can agree with X, Motorhead, Kiss (duh), and The Cure.

Joy Division? Meh. They had one decent album and a couple of reasonably good singles. They're more noteworthy for the suicide of Ian Curtis and the fact that they went on to become New Order than their pioneering work in the goth rock genre. A stronger argument, IMHO, could be made for Bauhaus and/or Sisters of Mercy.

I think I see your point. There are a lot of bands on the list who are great influences on a particular genre, but what was their impact as a whole?

Has anybody who wasn't actually alive in 1977 ever heard of Richard Hell?  I remember 'Barbie Doll Lust', but other than that...

Some weird ones, too:

Quote
4) Tom Waits: The folks at Frito-Lay thought he was distinctive enough. Or at least the courts did when they awarded some money to Tom for the chip company using his vocal likeness. He's recorded something like 500 albums at this point. Shouldn't he be admitted for being persistent

Well, 500 is a nice number, but he still sounds like Billy Joel having a bad reaction to Xanax and Lithium.

Quote
5) Love: Forever Changes may make every classic album list of all-time but don't think that's going to help get Arthur Lee and his bandmates into this Hall of Fame. Someone's probably saving a seat for Foreigner!

Having a founding member convicted of murder and forever connected to the Manson Family is creepy and makes you famous, but that's all.

Honest to god though, I thought Kiss was in. What the hell is the problem there? I can't think of a bigger band from the 70's, and they belong for this alone:



I mean, recovering a career after that piece of crap is SERIOUS HoF material!
