    I don't follow the Rock n Roll HOF. I really could care less. But when you said the above I was astounded that these two bands weren't in there.

    It appears they both are... LZ in 1995, and BS in 2006

    I actually took the tme to browse the list of those that are currently in... and when I see some that have made it ....yet it took Alice Cooper so long to get in .... and bands like ELO, Deep Purple, and even Rush aren't??

    They can stick it! They're a joke IMO.
    "panic" only comes from having real expectations

    I am glad to see the E Street Band getting inducted. I understand why they were technically inelligible for so long (they were not listed as the artist on a release until Live 75-85) so it is good they are now going in.

    Is there really a lack of "70s bands" in the HoF?

    IMO, it all boils down to impact, and there are several omitted/yet to even be nominated artists that fit the criteria -- in some cases, more so than already inducted acts (Laura Nyro? Come on). And no, that doesn't mean that a band that reached it's peak in the 70's or 80's is more deserving or influential than, for example, the recently inducted Red Hot Chili Peppers or Nirvana -- not by a long-shot.

    Believe me, You'll see plenty of artists who peaked in the 90's or later inducted in the future. Pearl Jam should be a slam dunk, and cases can be made for, among others: Collective Soul, The Smashing Pumpkins and STP, but the general consensus that bands such as ELO and Deep Purple remain unjustly omitted, among other bands of the era, remains.

    This is The Replacements at their best:

    What about bands from the early 80s that are still waiting? Where's Black Flag?

    Zillions of bands out there


    The Mats are what the Goo Goo Doll pretended to be
    I strike out on that list with the exception of The Minutemen. I was never a record-store buff. Strictly radio for me. But wide ranging as just about every person in my family liked a different style of music from a different era. Classical to disco to rock to pop to heavy metal to new age to C&W. But if it wasn't on the radio (or in my families record, tape or 8-track collection) then no luck.
    Chapman to the rotation!!!! Do it already!!!!

    This thread could be renamed: "Rock and Roll is Dead" (And I don't care) .

    I think we can all agree about the absurdity of the entire selection process.

    Really good call on Blag Flag, BTW, as they are often overlooked, despite the fact they were highly influential. Of that era, I'll also echo the sentiments of those who believe that Joy Division, The Smiths and The Cure should get the call.

    The Smiths and The Cure need to be there more than many that's for sure
