I don't laugh as much at it anymore, but Christopher Walken always makes me chuckle

the most underrated SNL skit: Martin Short and Harry Shearer as Male Synchronized Swimmers, omg, I die everytime

but back to the point: has Brian Eno made it into the Hall of Fame? or does his music not really fit in?

I believe you have my stapler



does Lou Reed count as part of The Velvet Underground' induction?

o, and Peter Gabriel better make it in, he's written one of the greatest songs ever: "In Your Eyes", anyone who was involved in that song must go into some type of hall of fame

The ceremony was on Monday evening, 3/13/06. Must have been a strange evening - wonder what "highlights" they'll be airing next week after reading this (not surprising though)


NEW YORK (Reuters) - Rebel rockers the Sex Pistols, Black Sabbath and Lynyrd Skynyrd were finally ushered into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on Monday after years of rejection but the Sex Pistols didn't bother to show up.

The 2006 class of inductees also included jazz legend Miles Davis and New Wave group Blondie, who made little secret of the antagonism between current and past members of the band at a ceremony marked by controversy, awkwardness and no-shows.

The ballroom of New York's Waldorf Astoria was packed with ageing, long-haired rockers decked out in suits and gowns. Waiters in white ducked through swing doors adorned with graffiti to match a stage set designed to bring an air of seedy rock to the luxury of the chandeliered ballroom.

Musicians become eligible for consideration 25 years after their first recording and for several of those honoured on Monday, the induction came too late for them to enjoy it.

Davis died of a stroke in 1991, Sex Pistols bassist Sid Vicious died of a drug overdose in 1979 and several members of Lynyrd Skynyrd died in a 1977 plane crash.

Living up to their reputation for thumbing their nose at the establishment, the Sex Pistols snubbed the ceremony.

Still remembered for outraging British society with such nihilistic anthems as "Anarchy in the U.K.," the punk rockers faxed a letter to organisers saying: "We're not your monkey."

"Next to the Sex Pistols, Rock and Roll and that hall of fame is a piss stain," said the letter which was read out by Hall of Fame vice president Jann Wenner.

BAND TENSIONS

Heavy metal pioneers Black Sabbath and Southern band Lynyrd Skynyrd were also rejected previously by the 700 or so "rock experts" who vote on a shortlist, but both turned up.

The original crew of Blondie were inducted into the Hall of Fame but it was the band's current lineup led by a red-haired Deborah Harry who performed three of their hits, including "Call Me." There was an awkward moment when the original band members said they wanted to join in but and were turned down.

Guitarist Chris Stein said backstage law suits over royalties had soured relations.

Black Sabbath, formed by four friends from Birmingham almost 40 years ago, chose not to perform but singer Ozzy Osbourne, who was kicked out of the band in the late 1970s, said that was not because of any antagonism.

"If we'd have played everyone would have been fucking dead at the end, the volume we play at," said Osbourne, the self-proclaimed "prince of darkness" who recently had a popular revival on the television reality series about his family, "The Osbournes."

Osbourne said that he was happy to be given the honour, despite anything he may have said to the contrary on the seven previous occasions when the band was rejected. "I thought at the end of the day they're never going to do it," he said.

Fellow heavy metal stars Metallica introduced the band, noting the honour came "a decade or so late," before performing the Black Sabbath songs "Iron Man" and "Hole in the Sky."

Like Black Sabbath, Florida band Lynyrd Skynyrd was one of the biggest and hardest-living bands of the 1970s. They played their best known hit "Sweet Home Alabama."

Several of Miles Davis's children accepted the honour on his behalf. "Father changed the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame," Davis's daughter Cheryl said backstage, recalling his jazz roots and his impact on other musicians.

Trumpeter Herb Alpert and business partner Jerry Moss, the founders of A&M Records, were inducted as nonperformers.

Former Police frontman Sting introduced the pair, describing how they started the A&M record label back in 1962 with an initial investment of $100 (58 pounds) each and built it into one of the most successful independent record labels.

watching the former Blondie members beg Debbie Harry to let them play with her, and her refusing, was just painful. Awkward!

Eh... I wrote this big thing decrying the sex pistols, and then realised that I just don't care enough about them to polish it. Sufficed to say, I don't know if they deserve all the credit and recognition they get; I don't think they were ever that good. But whatever. *shrug*

And what are the sex pistols in this pile of refuse they call the world? The pile of crap? Right. Congratulations on romanticising the anti-trend in the same way that the trend romanticizes the world; both are a deception, both deceive people, neither of them have any more value than the other because both of them are fictions that make people feel good about things they shouldn't feel good about and ignore things they shouldn't ignore. They've just been rewarded for being assholes, not for any redeeming characteristics... that irks me.

Hall Of Fame is lame...........I mean, The Pretenders? Just awful..........not to mention that the Hall ignores pretty much everything underground. Bell and Sebastian's probably the best act from the last ten years, and instead, we'll probably see a Linkin Park induction.........
