    Rush- Should get in on the first ballot, their longevity, record sales, and musicianship guarantee it. The voters will give them the nod for being snubbed so long.

    Public Enemy- Guaranteed first ballot, critics darling and Chuck D is one of the greatest voices in rap history. They deserve it...so waht if it's not rock n roll.

    Albert King- 20% chance, he should have been nominated years ago. Monster playes that has influenced everyone that matters.

    Chic- 0% chance of getting in, not sure any perceived "disco" band will ever get in...except for the Bee Gees.

    Deep Purple- They'll get in, but it will take awhile. Criminally underrated pioneers of hard rock/ metal.

    Heart- A slight chance, but it will take awhile. Cheesy '80's/ '90's hair metal ballad phase under cuts their chances. May get a few votes cuz they're chicks that rawk. 15% chance

    Kraftwerk- 0% chance, if the vote was exclusive to European voters they'd get it. It's not, so they won't. Hugely influential though.

    Meters- Not likely, not enough of an impact or record sales. )% chance.

    Paul Butterfield Blues Band- Not a chance, great band but not enough record sales or impact. 0 % chance

    Randy Newman- He's got a shot, voters may look at his long career of song writing. But writing for Disney movies will hurt his chances. 10% chance.

    they really should call it the Music Hall Of Fame at this point..imagine the list of nominees 20 years from now..:facepalm:

    Rush will get in, and not show up to the "ceremony".


    I would fuck the shit out of Nancy Wilson.. yes, present-day Nancy Wilson.



    the RROF is a piece of shit

    should have much more metal bands being nominated at this point


    Rush is the only interesting nominee this year, public enemy will be a shoe in, because they need to dumb up the ceremony.

    Sorry the institution is a joke. It is rock and roll and they let anybody in while snubbing those that should be in. Like these groups or not Kiss, Deep Purple and Journey just to name a few should be in, way before public enemy or ll cool j. Rush should have been in years ago anyway.

    I wouldn't give the place a penny of my money and I love and live music.

    you can debate whether or not Rush is Top 10 all time rock group; but you cannot debate whether or not they are Hall of Fame :no:

    This statement proves that you should not ever talk rock and roll. I'm not a big Rush fan but to say they suck and shouldn't get in, you're clueless.

    The hall of fame should be about influencing other bands and when it comes to rock and roll, public enemy isn't an influence, Rush is and will be.
