    Don't have a thread to use as an excuse to post opinions and videos about music yet this weekend. The Rolling Stone music hall of fame have listed their top 15 of nominees for the Cleveland museum of questionable choices this week. Post a video or make a case for why any of these should make the final 5: Janet Jackson, Steve Miller Band, Chicago, The Cars, Cheap Trick, Los Lobos, Chaka Khan and James Brown's famed backup band The J.B.'s (all first time nominees), Chic, Deep Purple, N.W.A., Nine Inch Nails, the Smiths, the Spinners and Yes round out the list. I will start it by referring back to an old conversation starter that says that Cheap Trick are the Great American Rock Band because they followed the Beatles blueprint better than anyone else. My first volley will be simply this..There is no excuse for most of the bands there being in the HoF before DEEP PURPLE.

    The Cars are a no brainer as well in my book.

    Janet is a pretty easy pick too. This song looks like rock, but still has a funk beat.

    The U.S. is the only country that cares about the R&R hall of fame. No one outside of here gas/gaf.

    How in the hell are Steve Miller Band, Chicago, The Cars and Cheap Trick first time nominees? You'd think they would have at least been in the running before. Fuck the Rock N Roll HoF.

    In September 2010 it was announced that the J. Geils Band was a finalist nominee for selection to Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Class of 2011, but were not selected for induction that year.

    Edit: I think the line is "who needs tv when I got T. rex"
