    I agree. If this years inductees made it I am at a loss why Cooper isn't there.

    Why the hate for REM?

    Yes, their sound changed--but to call their last decade's output "unlistenable"? I, for one, found "Around the Sun" to be quite an enjoyable experience. "Up", too, wasn't at all bad.
    We'll burn that bridge when we get to it.

    You know what I mean though.....While Ronnie's voice stands out, the girl groups were interchangeable. Like I said earlier, Darlene Love and Cher (among others) appeared on Ronettes recordings as well.

    You know what is weird about REM?

    They spent their first decade with Michael standing looking at the ground or with his back to the crowd and mumbling 80% of the lyrics in a rapid fire manner. Now you can hear every lyric and they all are about emotions and relationships.

    Not that I find anything wrong with that.

    I never quite "got" Patti Smith.

    "Horses" was interesting, but other than that, I never quite understood what the big deal was.

Hell, their studio stuff had additional vocals by people like Darlene Love and Cher but still credited to The Ronettes.
    Well, when I say that Eddie Money deserves the assist, I mean that in the way that, by having Ronnie Spector sing on his hit song in the '80s, it brought her previous work with the Ronettes back into prominence. I had never heard of her before that and it was likely that the Ronettes could have faded into oblivion under the shadow of other girl groups from that era. But I remember that after that song, suddenly the Ronettes were on the radio all the time again, at least on the oldies and classic rock stations. By saying that, I do not mean that Eddie Money deserves to be in the Rock Hall or that the Ronettes got in there only because of Eddie Money. But "Take Me Home Tonight" certainly gave her career a boost at the right time.
    Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.

    But are they HOF worthy?

    It's so subjective, who can really say? They've certainly sold a lot of albums, and their lengthy career is a testament to their ongoing popularity and relevance. Certainly one of the most important bands to emerge out of America during the last 25 years.

    But Rock and Roll HoF credentials are much more arbitrary than those of, for example, the baseball HoF. You could look solely at album sales and tour grosses, but that would ignore so many valuable qualities that a band may have. There are a number of bands that I would classify as HoF-worthy, but who lack the requisite chart hits or album sales to gain admittance.

    They are absolutely, because of the influence they had, both musically and beyond. And I hate REM's music. Always have. But they deserve to be in the Hall of Fame, easy.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    I thought I saw that Dave was coming back...

    I've never understood why people say this. Are their songs complex? No. Are their lyrics deep and metaphysical? No Are they out trying to change the world for the cause dejour? No.

    But do their songs rock? Yes. Are their songs entertaining? Yes. Do their songs cause a reaction or emotional responce? Yes. Did they bring something new and different to the music sceen? Yes. (I'm talking about the 70's/early 80's Kiss).

    You may not care for their music but I don't think that takes away from being tallented. If it was so easy, why weren't there more bands following the exact same formula and making the same wild amounts of money? Seems to me if it was so easy, the lure of easy money would have had a strong allure to others to follow the same path.

    Bob Seger tends to inspire this from people, too. I'd put "Night Moves" up there amongst my favorites.

    I just want a song I can hum along to.

    Yea, I don't really care about who the artist is or the type of music. I just want it to move me in some way.
