Re: Rock & Roll Hall of Fame ballot announced
Nirvana and NWA would seem logical. Some day KISS will get in likely. They've been around so long, sold so many records and in the 70's were some kind of phenomenon I think they will end up in on that alone.
Nirvana is the most iconic of a change in music. Grunge paved the way for current alternative styles and let's face it Nevermind was in every kids CD player when I was a junior in high school. I know popularity doesn't make quality, but it was quality to me. Soundgarden was the only mainstream grunge band I liked more.
NWA.....they weren't he first 'gansta' rappers and in fact some of the stuff Cube and Dre have done since then remove a lot of their street cred [if there is such a thing] but much like Nirvana, there were a lot of us back in high school who had Straight Outta Compton in the disc changer of our cars. My dad was a cop and I still blared Eff the Police all the damn time.
To me those two should get in.

Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12

Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98
