    Re: Rock & Roll Hall of Fame ballot announced

    Outside of country/western and rap...I consider myself pretty well versed with music of the last 50 or 60 years. How is it that I have never even HEARD of the Replacements before. Is this one of those bands that I "know" but I just don't know their name? What should I listen to from them?
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    See? See? LOL...

    Youd have to have been a record store nut hanging out in the modern rock section...or listen to your areas version of 97X...

    It's great stuff, not for the masses...or it never caught on. Just a few fractions shy of being commercial.

    The closest sniff to mainstream was maybe, what "I'll be You" or "Alex Chilton"?

    I have memories of "I'll be you" being played on mainstream radio. I don't think they're false memories, but who knows?

    As I covered in the AOR thread ** shameless plug ** "I'll Be You" hit #1 on Billboard's Mainstream Rock Tracks chart back in '89, so I'm fairly certain they were not false memories.

    Other assorted Replacements and Westerberg tracks were big on Modern Rock/Alternative radio, but hit or miss on Mainstream rock radio. No matter, I've never heard anything by Westerberg or the 'Ments that wasn't good.

    As far as I'm concerned, Rap and anything are different animals. Be that as it may, I've come to accept the fact that it is now the Popular Music Hall Of Fame, rather than the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.

    Given the above, OTTOMH, the biggest glaring omissions are, in no particular order: ELO, Deep Purple, Chubby Checker and The Monkees, but there are several omissions yet to have been even nominated.

    yeah, let me clarify- they would not have been on maonstream radio...maybe 97X, or anyone who played modern rock...but in Cincy in 1989...I dont see it on top 40....or any station other than 97X....

    Yeah, I used the word mainstream kind of loosely, meaning commercial/regular/top 40.

    I've listened to it twice since it was mentioned.

    Rolling Stone considered The Replacements' "Tim" one of the top 10 albums of all time (at one point). They proclaimed it an angry, angsty rock classic. I bought it, listened to it, and loved it, but didn't *love* it.

    Decades later, I finally listened to Archers of Loaf's "Icky Mettle." It was everything I expected "Tim" to be.

    If you love rock that pairs rage with listenable hooks, "Icky Mettle" is for you. "Tim" too, but to a lesser degree.

    Try "Alex Chilton", "Left of the Dial", "Little Mascara," and "Answering Machine." If those songs speak to you, you're a Replacements fan.

    Saw the loaf in 94 and last year, both epic and thoroughly enjoyable
