    Well...if you're referring to the likes of Ray Charles and James Brown...they certainly had their feet solid in Blues and '50s Rock & Roll roots...and they influenced heavily.

    Modern R&B and Pop isn't quite the same...I mean "Whitney Huston"...?
    Great voice, some good songs...sad ending...but still not even close to Rock and Roll...which is the core of what the Hall of Fame is about.

    The real point it that lately it's more about Billboard charts and total sales...so some veteran rockers are left off the list, in favor of placating the general masses based on their total consumption.

    Pfft. Zorgo's overrated.

    Blargh The Infinite is where it's at, but you have to be a ball of pure energy consciousness in order to hear his frequencies.

    I don't know about superior, but they're definitely the most important electronic rock band of all time. Without Kraftwerk, there would be no NIN or Depeche Mode. Reznor and Gahan would be the firsts to say that.

    So how much “danger” is to be included, and who decides that?

    Maybe R&R HOF should have a merger with Danger HOF to even things out

    Apparently Notorious BIG has had a bigger impact on rock n roll than Randy Rhoads.

    That probably sounded witty before you clicked on "post reply", but it still doesn't address my point. Hope your evening gets better, bud.

    What is this burning point that wasn’t addressed?
    You know, for context

    It's time to change the name of this institution. I get Houston, and I get Depeche Mode, But to leave out Pat, Priest, Motorhead? for Big, who was active 5 years... and he wasn't rock n roll. And Nails had a few good tunes but nothing hall of fame worthy. Of course this is just my opinion but the Hall is a joke now. I mean Paul Rodgers isn't even in yet... Iron Maiden?? If Metallica is in and Sabbath and GnR are in Maiden should be in just on influence alone.

    I would like to see Depeche do their thing with Springsteen in the audience(I assume he attends all these things), I just like that juxtaposition. Maybe a strange live jam session too.

    They're an iconic 70s rock/pop band that's still popular, still filling some pretty big venues. There were a lot of big hits, but there are also non-radio album cuts that are unique, earthy, even soulful.

    A RnR HOF without this man will always be a joke.

    Seems everyone is more upset about Whitney than BIG. What's up with that? Yeah, neither belong, but given those two as a choice, I'll take Whitney any day.
