Yeah Becks, it's just basically a popularity contest. Whatever band is "popular" gets in right away, which is very pathetic. Take Metallica for example, they were inducted in 2009. No way they should be in before bands like Priest, Deep Purple, Maiden, etc., because they wouldn't even exist without those bands paving the way!! If they want to let anyone in (like ABBA, etc.), then at least make categories and then have a winner from each category so that Heavy Metal is always represented and inducted every year. I'm not sure they even know what Heavy Metal even is!
I agree too, so many fantastic bands are yet to be inducted, which is WRONG. ABBA, seriously WHAT THE FUCK. It's ROCK AND ROLL, not any type of music which anyone thinks has been kinda ok over the last 50 years.

I totally agree, the entire thing is a joke! They have gotten it right on a few occasions: Black Sabbath was inducted in 2006 (with OZZY saying that he would like to see bands like JUDAS PRIEST get in during his acceptance speech!!!), ZZ Top in 2004, and Cream in 1993 and now Alice Cooper. But the fact that bands that are NOT rock at all (like ABBA and all the RAP shit!) get in before Priest, Maiden, Motorhead, Saxon, Deep Purple, etc. is just a freakin' joke!!! That's why we all call it the Rock and Roll Hall of SHAME!
The only consolation we have this year is Alice Cooper is deservedly being inducted. Would be nice if the original BAND could get together. But, I agree. Its is a joke, a farce. Judas Preist, Motorhead, Saxon, Black Sabbath (correct me if im wrong), Ronnie James Dio, Whitesnake, Rush, ZZ Top (correct me again if im wrong), Deep Purple (correct me if im wrong), Cream (correct me if im wrong again).....
Fiestly, sorry for saying correct me if im wrong, Im not sure if thy are in. But, all the bands I mentioned all deserve to be in. I think though, that Whitesnake may have trouble because the Hall of Fame is really American and they may not really take much notice of their contribution before 1987 so....
But I do agree, it is a joke, and should be sorted out!!
