Oh I know, and I get that. And I think it's BS that that gets them in on the first ballot. It hasn't been 25 years since the world cared about them, or more importantly, since they started making music that mattered to the world.

And to counter, I realize that U2 weren't exactly setting the world on fire with Boy, either, yet they were in immediately, but to that, I say, that U2 has remained critically relevant their entire careers and Green Day's kinda disappeared for the last 10 years. 2 Critically acclaimed albums does not equal first year ballot, to me.

In ten years Coldplay will be eligible.

Maybe someone thought it would be funny including a band that had a album called Dookie.

(I think they should be in, but not in their first year of eligibility)

A couple arguments for:

Dookie was a seminal album of the 90s (that sounds like bukkake i know)

Blended Grunge-Pop-Punk creating a genre of imitators

Boulevard of Broken Dreams won Record of the Year (tough for a rock band not named U2 to do)

Good Riddance (Time of Your Life) was an anthem for a generation

Woodstock 94' performance was a pure rock n' roll moment

Green Day is slam-dunk worthy and ranks around #100 all-time on sites that are extremely knowledgeable on these matters (see FutureRockLegends).

Their first four albums were absolutely perfect pop-punk records and American Idiot was a huge late resurgence (although albums like Nimrod/Warning/21st Century Breakdown all have classics).

I don't know why they get singled out when they actually have the best resume of any inductee from this year...had Kraftwerk or Chic or The Smiths or Nine Inch Nails got in, you'd have an argument. Otherwise, this is the best that the 2015 class has to offer.

Also Above The Bar: Bill Withers, Lou Reed, Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble, 5 Royales

Not Worthy: Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Ringo Starr

I believe Joan Jett is worthy. She's a pioneer in female Hard Rock. She was hanging with the big boys when Hard Rock/Heavy Metal was a male dominated arena.

I hate having to read "Katrina & The Waves" (or hear a tune from them) because my brain has to automatically bring up their only notable fact...that they had a member from The Soft Boys.

I think Joan Jett should be in, but via the Musical Excellence category. It would cover everything she did (Runaways, her image, her collaborations), rather than try and prop up her minimally influential band that mostly got by doing covers.

Right, she had a few awesome hits, but the albums were nothing memorable. She definitely paved the way for future female rockers.

Leo does. That's why when he grows up he is going to be the savior of the broken, the beaten, and the damned.
