The RRHOF isn`t a popularity contest or an award for commercial success.If commercial success would be the main criteria for an induction into the RRHOF then you could simply put in the artists which have the highest sales in the end of each year. The result would be a RRHOF full of "artists" like Kelly Clarkson, Vanilla Ice, Paula Abdul, Huey Lewis & the News, Nickelback or the Hansons.For example: Velvet Underground experienced little commercial success. Brian Eno once said, "Only five thousand people ever bought a Velvet Underground album, but every single one of them started a band.

Like the list overall. Kind of estrogen-deprived, though.

JMB you are the kind of fan that the hall should be listening to. I think we all have reservations about having to shape our own decisions around what direction the hall seems to be moving towards even if it is distasteful! I think your choices are very good but you have brought up a very significant point which we seem to bash around often in here, What is Rock? Maybe the hall should base their criteria on what music was banned or considered punishable by jail time in other countires at some point. That might shake them up a bit.

JMB,I was a big 80's metal fan myself. As we tried to figure out this list, a big part of what drove us, is just what the definiton of Rock even is anymore. Based on who they have in, we have to incorporate to some degree the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame vision.ie.....When Grandmaster Flash got in, it meant that Rap should not be ignored in any Rock HOF list. People may hate it, but it has lasted over twenty years, and it is a musical style that certainly has impact. As for Janet, she may very well get in. Although she i certainly more of a Pop icon, there are others like her (including her brother) who are in. We actually have her ranked fairly high.As for Ray Parker, if that hack ever gets in, i am slitting my wrists now. I will never understand the omission of Deep Purple. Other artists like them are in, and though Rush is ranked higher, there is only one real prog rock group in the Hall, which can explain the lack of love for Rush. Deep Purple not being in, makes not sense to me at all based on who is in already.

Thank you for the comment. OK, I get it. I was not even aware of this website until I came across a reference on YouTube. It is a good idea.As a Heavy Metal fan in my youth (80"s) I ran down the list looking for some names, like Dokken, Accept or Loudness; to my surprise most names are on your list; so I have to say it is very comprehensive. And I get the point on why A-Ha or Wham are on the list, the induction process over the years has become unpredictable so the pool of candidates has widened to some controversial areas for pure Rock'n'Roll fans. I "lived" Rock
