They still haven't inducted Link Wray. Thus they have no credibility.
Pfft... the Beatles
Now that is pop drivel if I ever heard it
I don't think you've ever heard it.
Listen to "Nightspots " or " got a lot on my head" or "bye bye love" ect...and tell me The Cars are just simple pop.That's laughable.The Cars could rock with the best of them.
Um ...yeah The Beatles invented pop didn't they?
Tull / Ian snubbed again.
Ah yes, Link Wray. Thank you for the perspective. Here's a cool video mashup. That's Jerry Lewis as a gutter punk(!)... Chris Squire (RIP) was unavailable for this session
I'm just glad the real Joe Strummer wasn't one to trash talk good music.
His catalogue is indicative of a much more open and active mind.
Anything played on any pop/hip hop/oldies/r and b/classic rock fm station is "pop music"
Get over it.
Pop is not a setting on the Casio. It's a measure of success.
There are lots of people out there who treat music lIke fashion and love to do the "pop is anything I don't like" thing and that doesn't work. If you like something lots and lots of other people like, you are liking some form of pop.
The Beatles are the rule, not the exception. Maybe the best illustration of the pop phenomenon ever. They are how pop becomes.
Janet Jackson instead of Jethrow Tull, indeed that is hard to believe.
Hey, at least Green Day got inducted!
That reminded me of a sign you find in any craftsman's shop referring to obtaining his services:
"Bye Bye Love" is a very good song. Not exactly a rock song, but what difference does that make.
Generally speaking The Cars were a simple pop band. Very good at what they did, but a simple pop band nonetheless. They aimed for the charts, not the hearts. (Pretty good what I just did there.)
Oh, yeah. I saw Joe on TV ripping to shreds Boy George. It was on "Entertainment Tonight" of all places. Joe was going on about how his (Joe's) music is real and Boy George's is not. I remember Joe passionately saying, "I don't wear a brassiere!" He was trash talking other artists. Your perception of Joe being a noble saint may be a bit off.
Narrowing it down now...
I was discussing music with a friend of mine from Boston one day and at one point he mentioned that his dad claimed The Cars were the best band ever from Boston. I enjoyed their music a lot back in the 70's but I had to point out Aerosmith was also from Beantown.
I don't think there's any denying Ric Ocasek is a darned good songwriter who had a bunch of hits, sold a ton of records and at the time was very current with his rockin' tunes that had some new wavey flavor smeared into them.
Yes to Chicago and Terry Kath being recognized. Terry was the man!!!
I voted as well and very disappointed to find only one of my choices in the top 5. What the heck do I know. I'm a fan and I just voted for the folks whose memorabilia and plaques I'd like to see the next time I'm in Cleveland...
Along with Danny Seraphine who still plays with The California Transit Authority.
