    Well.

    I know, it is not rock and roll anymore, includes rap and who knows what else, but, here it
    is anyway. I think MC5, Trex and Thin Lizzy get my vote. Close 2nd Benatar,Judas Priest,Motorhead
    Doobies and Todd. (He is a good producer)

    I can’t believe the Doobies and Todd Rundgren aren’t already in.

    I don't think any of them warrant Hall of Fame status ... Not saying they're not great, but they pale in comparison to the real icons ... RRHOF has become a commercial money grab ...

    Whiney Houston: not even close to rock and roll.

    Well, it's a non-profit, so I'm not sure how the money gets grabbed, or by whom. They may be admitting too many musicians into the Hall, and they may be motivated by the desire to grow and maintain interest, but there's no profit motive and no shareholders to satisfy.

    I'd vote for Soundgarden, but that could be my generational bias talking.

    EDIT: I just looked at their annual report, and more than half of their revenue for 2018 was donated. Nobody's going to Davos on that sweet, sweet museum money.

    I used to work at a large retail book store where we played a line-up of 5 or 6 CD's for our in-store music. These were typically new releases, but sometimes we played other things for other reasons.

    When Whitney Houston died, that meant playing a 3-disc "greatest hits" (that somehow also included dance remixes no one has ever heard). Now, the lady could sing, but 2 hours of her constantly belting it out (her one real "trick", IMO) was more than a little trying when you heard it 2 or 3 times per shift.

    Another CD we were playing then was whatever Ringo's latest solo offering was. I remember remarking that there's nothing like a Ringo album followed by a Whitney album to make you really appreciate a Ringo album.

    The MC5 should have been inducted a LONG time ago....

    No one on the list is remotely accomplished as Rundgren. He out talents everyone else on the list.

    Whitney Houstons presence on the list shows what a fallacy the RORHOF is, a joke in reality. Not that she isn't a super talent, but she contributes nothing to Rocknroll.

    Totally subjective thing and somewhat generational .

    I am 55 and have friends that I went to high school with that never moved much beyond classic rock. They would love to see the Doobie Brothers inducted and probably also still listen to them on a regular basis.

    But punk ran into my head like a train and it changed my frame of reference.
