    Kraftwerk is my favorite band of all times. Loved them since early 70´s. But it´s not R'n'R!!

    My hugely subjective picks...


    Todd Rundgren - A wizard, a true star, and a songwriter of astonishing depth. Pioneered the one-man band/self producer while Prince was still in diapers.

    Pat Benatar - She changed the game for female rockers as solo acts.

    Judas Priest - Thanks to a fruitful partnership with producer Tom Allom, metal took a huge evolutionary leap forward in terms of performance, songcraft, and production.

    Kraftwerk - Without them, no EDM and they’re also hugely influential in the early birth of hip-hop which in turn has been hugely influential on rock music like it or not, Dad.

    Soundgarden - The best of the Seattle bands, IMHO, with one of the all-time greatest vocalist in rock.

    I'd like to see The Doobie Brothers and Todd Rundgren get in. The rappers shouldn't even be on that list. :rolleyes:

    No love for Motorhead? If Lemmy doesn't deserve to be in the Rock 'n Roll hall of fame then I don't know who does.

    The Tragically Hip are an amazing treasure, but the hall is focused on US and British acts. It's a damn shame. Gord and the boys made solid records since the 80's and in the last year's showed will, determination. Grace, too.

    Judas Priest has had a large influence on bands that have come up since they began. It's hard to imagine the genre of Metal/Hard Rock without their influence.
    They get my vote.

    For a few months now, I've been coming to the conclusion that rock is suffering from the perception (or reality) of a filled up, static pantheon. That's how you know a genre of music is stepping back from the front of the culture - it perpetually looks backwards, and makes the bar to entry more and more covention-bound. Slapping our backs for having lived in the good old days is a self-fulfilling prophecy.

    If I were 17 instead of 47, maybe I'd respect and look up to punk, but not much else.
