Bring up The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and watch the varied reactions to its name.
No doubt you’ll hear critics ripping into the Hall once again with the announcement of this year’s inductees. Nine Inch Nails, Depeche Mode, Whitney Houston, The Notorious B.I.G., T. Rex and The Doobie Brothers all got the nod for induction in 2020.
Dave Matthews Band won the fan vote but will need to wait another year before their possible inclusion. Soundgarden, Judas Priest, Motörhead, Kraftwerk, Thin Lizzy, and Todd Rundgren didn’t make the cut this year.
In order to be eligible for induction, a nominee’s first recording must have been released at least 25 years ago.
You can watch the induction ceremony (taking place at the Public Hall in Cleveland, Ohio) on HBO on May 2nd.
Which bands that aren’t in the Hall of Fame SHOULD be in? Let me start… Judas Priest. Soundgarden, Motorhead, Pantera.
