No disrespect to MCA from Beastie Boys. RIP--Cancer sucks But when reading the story, I saw that the BB's were in the RRHF. We all know (I think) that it's a stupid hall of fame, but any thoughts at any other obvious head scratchers? The Beastie Boys and Blondie making it in there is as dumb as them getting into the Gospel Hall of Fame (There is one and it's been around longer than the R&R Hall of Fame). I get classical based heavy metal getting snubbed if they are going to be strict blues based rock but how then can they leave out KISS if this is true? Hell, Sabbath has influenced more bands than any other and they only recently were inducted. But shit, if Blondie and Beasty Boys can get in, then doesn't that open the door for Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Deep Purple (really?), Blu Oyster Cult? Pretty sure Woodie Guthrie never ever did a blues song (rock wasn't invented yet) but he's in there. I guess that means that Peter Paul and Mary are being snubbed?
