Not in Hall of Fame News

As always, we try to expand here at Notinhalloffame.com. In approximately six weeks we will have our Notinhalloffame.com Rock and Roll list updated, which countdowns the top 500 plus acts that deserve Rock and Roll Hall of Fame consideration. As always, the revisions take out those who were just inducted, adds the new eligible artists worthy of the list and adjust rankings based on your votes and comments. In the meantime, we have expanded our Futures section to include those musicians who are eligible for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2027. The entire group can be found…
It has been leaked and reported by multiple sources that Diamond Dallas Page will be entering the WWE Hall of Fame this Wrestlemania weekend. Page is (or soon to be was) ranked #47 on our Notinhalloffame.com WWE list. The first time that DDP entered the wrestling scene was as a manager in the American Wrestling Association in 1988.  He would manage the tag team of Bad Company (Paul Diamond and Pat Tanaka) to the AWA World Tag Team Champions, and while this was a promotion that was deep into its decline, it was still national exposure.  When the AWA folded,…

RIP: Milt Schmidt

It is a very sad day for Hockey and the Boston Bruins specifically. Milt Schmidt passed away today at the age of 98.  Joining the Boston Bruins in the 1936-37 season, Schmidt would soon center the “Kraut Line”, with his fellow junior teammates, Woody Dumart and Bobby Bauer.  This would become one of the most explosive lines in the game, and would lead the Bruins to Stanley Cup wins in 1939 and 1941.  Schmidt would lead the NHL in Assists and Points title in 1939-40 and would earn his first First Team NHL All Star Selection.  Like many players, Schmidt…
We love this time of the year! The Pro Football Hall of Fame has announced their Finalists for the Class of 2017, and as usual there are only moderate surprises. The 15 finalists are as follows:
Over interactions with fans over Twitter, Megadeth’s front man Dave Mustaine stated that the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame are “opposed” to him being a member. When asked by a fan whether it was “past time” for Megadeth to enter the Rock Hall, Mustaine responded as such: “I think that the @rockhall is opposed to me being in there.  It is one of my bucket list items: The R&R HOF and my Grammy.” This generated a bit of conversation on Mustane’s timeline, prompting another fan to state that he deserved both a spot in the Rock and Roll Hall…
The 2016 NFL Regular Season is now over and with the Baltimore Ravens failure to make the post season, so is the career of Wide Receiver, Steve Smith. The question that has been asked is whether or not he is a Hall of Famer and there is strong case to suggest that he is. Entering the National Football League as Carolina’s 2001 third round pick from the University of Utah, Smith would earn First Team All Pro Honors and a trip to the Pro Bowl, though that was as a Special Teams Player.  He would finish fourth in Kick Return…
2016 has been a very good year for us at Notinhalloffame.com. As we have been accumulating more members and more attention for other projects, The Fictitious Athlete Hall of Fame and the Fictitious Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, we feel that 2017 will be another year of growth for our sites.  Here is what we have in mind for 2017. Podcasts. This seems like the natural progression for us.  The initial plan is to have our first show up by mid-February and it will look at countdown shows, what is new in the world of Halls of Fame, what…
After three rounds and a full year of public online voting, the Fictitious Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has announced their second full class. Joining last year’s first class of The Blues Brothers, Spinal Tap and the Monkees are Gorillaz and Tenacious D.  Like last year, these selections can be considered controversial as both groups certainly blur the line between real and fictional. Gorillaz were this year’s runaway leader in the votes.  Created by Blue front man, Damon Albarn and comic genius, Jamie Hewlett, Gorillaz is a virtual band complete with four animated members: 2D (lead vocals & keyboard),…
This is not how we wanted to celebrate Christmas Day. It has been reported that George Michael has died today at the age of 53.  As of this writing, no cause has been given, only that he died peacefully at his home. Born Georgios Kyriacos Panayiotou in London, England, George Michael first found success as one half of Wham! With Andrew Ridgeley.  They would reach the charts in England in 1983 with their first album, “Fantastic”, which yielded hits like “Club Tropicana” and the “Wham Rap”, but it was in 1985 that true international stardom would come calling when their…
As you all know Pearl Jam expectedly entered the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on the first ballot.  You might also know that Dave Abbruzzese, their former drummer will not be joining the band as he was not named amongst the members whom the Rock Hall deemed relevant enough to be inducted.  Of the five drummers that Pearl Jam had, the original, Dave Krusen and current drummer, Matt Cameron are being inducted.  Krusen was let go from the band in 1991 following problems with alcohol but he was the drummer on their breakthrough album, Ten.  Cameron joined the band…
