    The ones beside JCM and Madonna mystify me.

    And Rush will forever pay the price for Bytor and the Snow Dog [/hicosmo!]

    I'm no Rush fan but Jesus, they're better than some of the acts they have in this thing. They let a lot of shitty groups in.

    Madonna is not rock. She belongs in bubble gum/disco HOF.
  6. You seriously don't think Mellencamp belongs? He's phenomenal. An honor long since due.

    Sorry but Mellancamp belongs in the Hall more so than Rush, and I am a Rush fan saying this too.

    Madonna is another story though :-X
  8. Mellencamp belongs. But so do Rush and Chicago, and neither one of them is in, so I can't take the RnRHOF too seriously.

    Leonard Cohen? Really?

    To me the remarkable thing about Mellencamp is that his songs (okay, Our Country is the exception) don't get stale. I used to like Steve Miller, Tom Petty, and artists of that ilk but I almost cringe when I hear Jungle Love or something similar. Mellencamp's songs just never seem to get old.
  10. For those who just know "Jack and Diane" or "Small Town," you have to take a gander at his entire body of work. Some of it is unbelievably good, particularly "Scarecrow," with lesser-known songs like "Minutes to Memories," "Rumble Seat," etc., etc. John Mellencamp is an elite rock artist.

    Nice to see the Ventures get in. They are a quality instrumental rock band.

    Rush ... the Bert Blyleven of rock and roll.

    (I'd have said Fergie Jenkins, but Fergie is actually in.)
