Well, your English teacher would tell you that you COULDN'T care less about VH getting inducted into the RRHOF. This would indicate that you lacked the ability to care any lesser about Van Halen. LOL! I'm just fucking with ya!
Anyway, REM and Van Halen are polar opposites on the Rock scale, so it's not common for their respective fans to give a shit about them.

So does that mean Gary is inducted as well?

hahaha funny !


I was around when they were hitting it big (Junior High School).. And did have a VH album when I was a teenager.. Their debut album I believe.. It was cool back in my day but not now. My tastes have changed a bit. You know their style never progressed (evolved) thru the years pretty much the same even when sammy came into the picture..

I agree. By the time Balance came out in 1995, Van Halen started to get stale. I mean, the music was still pretty good, but there wasn't any growth. The F.U.C.K. album was their last solid effort and that came out in 1991.
I'm not sure about Gary Cherone. He wasn't around very long. Sammy was with VH longer than Roth was.

F.U.C.K wasn't much either.......the four hits ("Poundcake", "Right Now", "Top Of The World" and um, whatever the other one was) were all some of their best Van Hagar-era works, but the rest of the album was laughably self indulgent.

R.E.M. is a must. One of the most influential and strongest acts in rock history. And yes, I'd be if they performed "E-Bow The Letter" with Patti.

Van Halen is also one of the most influential acts of the last three decades, and I wonder what the holdup was, however, this unfortunately means that their imitators (hair bands from the 80's) now have a shot.

Patti Smith, well, she's now only here because Springsteen's manager runs the nomination committee. He shoved her on a ballot of nine, where three acts (Chic, Tex, Dave Clark Five) had no business being there......then changed the rules so that five HAD to be inducted. That said, she's certainly deserving, more so than the Pretenders and Blondie, who are both already in there (and, in the case of Blondie, "deserving" as well).

Grandmaster Flash opens the floodgates for future rap inductees. I still wouldn't expect too many additions. Beastie Boys, Jay Z, Dre, Public Enemy, Outkast....maybe Run DMC.

The Ronettes. Eh. Love them, but Phil Spector played the largest part in their success and he's already in the Hall. Plus, their career was exceedingly brief.

some future additions that have been overlooked for ages:

ABBA
Brian Eno
Cars
Jam
Joy Division
Leonard Cohen
Mission Of Burma
New Order
Nick Drake
Replacements
Television
Tom Waits


And 2008's Surefire Inductees:

Beastie Boys (seems a bit early, but FutureRockHall.com says they're eligible)
Madonna
Metallica
Sonic Youth

The fifth act could be anything, someone screwed over in year's past or one of the following eligibles:

10,000 Maniacs
Talk Talk
Tears For Fears

Genesis, Yes, and ELO have been overlooked by the Hall for years.

Not sure about Jeff yet. I don't think so, though. Genesis should be in soon. It took VH a few years to get in, so maybe some of these artists will have to wait a little bit. Not everyone can be like U2 and get in on the first shot. lol!

Jeff Lynne wouldn't be inducted on his own, as he didn't release a solo album until 1990 and didn't become a major producer of other artists until ELO called it a day in 1986.

But ELO definitely should be there.

As for Yes, granted they put the meaning in "excess" back in the 70's, but there is no denying some of the classic things they have done.

And speaking of Genesis, I don't believe Peter Gabriel is in on his own, either. He should definitely be there, too.

Wild guess says that Kiss and Genesis get into the Hall before ELO.
