When you have a pop tart like Madonna in the Rock N Roll HOF and classic rock bands like Rush and The Moody Blues on the outside looking in, there's something wrong.

I have to agree. Madonna was inducted before Rock N Roll legend Neil Diamond.

This is another in a long line of snubs against much worthier artists. The HOF is really a farce.

admit it or not = madonna's a lot more ''multi-generation/popular'' than those two bands combined

Maybe among the pop crowd, but not among rock audiences. Maybe they could build a pop music hall of fame for her.

the 'great bands and singers lasts for decades and more even after thier history,the Moody Blues are still crankin and still playing,after decades

I saw the Moody Blues in concert a few years ago and they still sounded great.

The only thing rock about Madonna? There is nothing rock about Madonna!

The Rock 'n Roll HOF is a great place.

I'm pretty sure that record sales are one of the criterias for induction into the R 'n R HOF. While I'm no fan of Madonna's so-called music she has sold alotta records over the years.

You couldn't pay me enough to go see Madonna. I've seen lots of good R-n-R bands (and singers) in my time, but I wouldn't waste time with some, like Madonna. I'd much rather see the old Michael Jackson (NOT the one who became a chameleon tho)

Hey I'm right there with ya. I wouldn't go to one of her shows if I had free tickets.

I'm waiting for the day that Weird Al Yankovic get in the R 'n R HOF. HA-HA-HA, just kidding!

Rush is a good band also.

The R 'n R HOF only allows one Canadian act in there. Neil Young beat 'em to it(HA-HA-HA)!!

Have MC Hammer's parachute pants made it in there yet? I haven't been to the R 'n R HOF since I got outta NE Ohio a few years ago.

No wonder the Guess Who aren't in there.

If you guys ever wonder what lyrics were to certain songs that you liked, and never could figure out what they were saying........such as Manfred Mann's "Blinded By The Light", where he sings "wrapped up like a d.ou.ch.e, another rumor in the night", or however you heard it..........go to "kissthisguy.com". Not only will you find out the exact words, but also laugh your butt off at what other people have heard on various songs throughout the ages.
Also, "Amiright.com" does the same thing, but have parodies, and other things as well. I have laughed and laughed at some of the things people hear, and they are usually waaaaaaaay off base.

"Kissthisguy" is what people thought Jimi Hendrix was saying when he sang "Kiss The Sky", thus the name of the site.
