Metallica are eligible this year, 2008, since their first record was in 83, but they are not in.
this is true, and especially in metallica's case, you can't not say they're a rock act. and as far as depeche mode are concerned, they can rock. not all of their music is light synth-driven music. in fact, the band from the 90s on is more rock than electronic.

That may be true about DM but under the rigid reasoning we've seen here, they would probably be undeserving inductees because they belong in some kind of hypothetical "electronica" hall of fame.

I imagine there are just as many people who would be critical of Depeche Mode's validity, no?

I happen to be fans of both. Whatever. The quality (or lack thereof) of the music is only part of the argument. There are plenty of acts that I don't like (Aerosmith, for example) or feel they're overrated (Tom Petty, Aerosmith, again) that I wouldn't make a stink about being in the Hall.

oh yes, i agree. when a lot of people think of them, they think of just can't get enough or people are people. basically, nothing that's remotely rock.

Ditto both these quotes. If they've had an impact on music, I say they deserve their place in a hall of fame like this. My personal feelings on their work are moot. I'm not a big Michael Jackson fan, but the guy had an impact and was very influential, so any recognition he gets makes sense.

While I see U2girl's point about Madonna, I also think she's being recognized because she inspired other females to take more control of their careers and be more independent. Madonna's done things that people have "tsk tsk"d at because they thought a woman shouldn't be singing about such things or doing such things. And yet she did. And other women felt they were able to be more open as a result. I personally have no problem with her-I only know mostly her more well-known songs, but I've liked a good deal of them-but even if I didn't like her at all, her impact can't be denied.

I do agree Metallica and Depeche Mode should be added-I'm sure someday they will be. I'm fine with the list this year-a group like the Dave Clark Five strikes me a bit odd as an inductee choice, but then again, I only know a few songs by them (which I like), so maybe there's more to them that I'm missing. Everyone else, no issues here.

Another year gone and another year without someone I am really into.

Madonna i can respect. I really only like Ray of Light (the song)

John Mellencamp- He is ok. I like a couple of songs

When will The Cure, Depeche Mode, The Cars, INXS or other well deserving bands make it in?

I am a big prog rock fan. I think it is making a sort of comeback as was mentioned earlier. Boston, Journey, ELO, Genesis, Yes and loads of others deserve it but we'll have to see.

He's so awesome, and so Canadian.

Madonna kicks so much ass I don't even know where to start.

I'm so disappointed she didn't perform, though.

I was very disappointed she didn't perform either. Wasn't impressed with Iggy Pop's performance either. The Madonna induction was definitely a long portion of the show, with Timberlake's speech as well as Madonna's. Where was her family, not there? No camera cuts to "her table". Did they not come? Or did she request no cameras?

I liked Billy Joel ripping the current state of the music industry. And Mellancamp was alright as well. Enjoyed Tom Hank's impassioned induction of the Dave Clark 5, however the group "performance" was a bit

B12 like Clemens?

Singer Justin Timberlake, who helped produce Madonna's upcoming album, inducted her with an innuendo-laden speech.

"The world is full of Madonna wanna-bes. I might have even dated a couple," said Britney Spears' ex. "But there is truly only one Madonna."

Timberlake told of how he felt ill one day while working on Madonna's new album and she asked whether he wanted a B-12 shot. He said sure, expecting a doctor to show up, but Madonna pulled out a syringe and said, "Drop 'em."

After he pulled his pants back up, "She looked at me and said, 'That's top shelf,' and that was one of the greatest days of my life," he said.

"Everything he said is basically true," Madonna confirmed, "but I didn't say 'Drop 'em,' I said, 'Pull your pants down.' "

Any chance they're going to replay this on regular VH1?
