    Did Depeche Mode do a song called Ordinary World or are you thinking of the Duran Duran song? I don't know the former's catalog well.

    When you leave out Slayer and Pantera, you can’t say it represents heavy metal well. If you leave out Nick Cave and Joy División, you can’t it represents post-punk well. And the rap and reggae artists they choose make me think of the awful Rolling stone reviews of those idioms.
    There is no place for American indie rock, IDM, experimental rock, and many great non-British or non-American artists.

    To sum up my confusion, Elton John is in and the Sex Pistols and Slayer are not. EJ is pop. The other two are key punk and metal artists that changed the industry and are giants in their idioms.
    And U2 is in,but Brian Eno is not. U2 is pop. Eno is a sound creating genius.
    Sex Pistols were inducted in 2006 but they want nothing to do with the hall of fame

    You are correct. I got my bands mixed up.

    Depeche Mode - Personal Jesus.

    I could listen to that every day.

    I had to listen to it every day in college. I got so tired of it that I made up my own "Weird Al" parody called "Your Own Personal Pan Pizza."

    Lydon is always good for a strong opinion. Did you know he’s a US citizen? He is also about the only public figure I can think of to praise POTUS Obama and Trump.
