Your 2012 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductees

Guns N’ Roses, Beastie Boys, Red Hot Chili Peppers inducted into Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Consequence of Sound

Guns N' Roses, Beastie Boys, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Donovan, Laura Nyro, and The Faces will all be inducted.

Somehow, THE CURE and JOAN JETT did NOT make the cut. Could this hall of fame be any more of a joke by this point? I agree with the big three inductees up there, but The Cure and Jett were far too influential to not be in there.

Yeah, umm, the RHCP have been basically recording the same song over and over again for the past 20 years... This sets a dangerous precedent for Nickleback imo...

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is possibly the only award that somehow means less than the Grammy's.

Silly to think that RHCP shouldn't be inducted.

However passing over the Cure is poor prioritization. Good class, though. The Cure will get in next year. They honestly probably stuck RHCP in there simply because they'll be running through the US and they'll play at their induction?

That sounds about right. They've been eligible for the past two years. I'd imagine they waited until the band came out of its hiatus to induct them.

Which means The Cure will never be inducted; they're lazy as fuck.

Not a big RHCP fan, but to deny their place in modern rock, their longevity, and how different they sounded from everyone else (aside from Fishbone and P-Funk, at least) is a little foolish.

The Cure will get in eventually. Stop complaining because it took The Dan a lot longer to get in.

What RHCP's lineage contributed (contributes?) to rock is embarrassing white boy funk, which hasn't had anywhere near the longevity or presence that The Cure's followers have had. It's not even close. The Cure should have gotten in on the first ballot; they had nothing left to prove.

RHCP have been around a long time and still manage to sell records, but their lineage is pretty awful compared to most of the bands in the rock hall, which should be relevant if your bust is going to take up space somewhere. I guess the same is true of the Beastie Boys, but Paul's Boutique alone does more with sound and shows more sonic creativity than RHCP has given us in their entire 30 year career combined, so there's that.

Guns N' Roses I agree with, no question.

I'm not arguing with that. The Cure simply aren't as mainstream (and only were for a brief period), and it always takes those acts longer to get in.

Yeah, good for Guns.

If they'd have all died in a plane crash a week after Appetite came out, they would have been inducted already.

Top ten album of ALL TIME.

I wouldn't call 8-9 years (somewhere from Let's Go To Bed and The Lovecats 'til the end of the Wish tour) a brief period, but I guess you have a point when you compare them to Guns and Peppers.

Guns and Peppers

Fuck both of those bands though. Although the latter one had two or three great albums. Mother's Milk

Well, Let's Go To Bed wasn't on mainstream radio or on MTV regular hours, at least not here in the U.S.

I'd say their peak period was from when Just Like Heaven was in heavy rotation up to Friday I'm In Love. So that's like 5 years. The Peppers had bigger hits over a much longer span of time.
