From the article "Included in the list are several names that perpetually appear on "Hall of Fame Snubs" lists, including Deep Purple, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Heart and Rush."

They don't need to look any further than the 4 greats listed above, IMO.

Alex had to beat up a cop to get the Hall Of Fame's attention.

So how does this work? Do they all get in or is it a vote?
I love Heart and Deep Purple as well.

It's a vote. Basically, a bunch of BS, if you look at who has gotten in and who has not.

Rush doesn't care, I don't care, and really, I hope no one does. One look at who has been inducted and who hasn't should be enough to see that it doesn't matter at all.

With that said, congrats to Rush and the others nominated.

Not that I'm a fan (my mum is) the most glaring omission is Cliff Richard (and The Shadows), the guy has been around for 50 years, has had a number 1 hits in pretty much every decade since he started, and has spent over 22 years in the UK charts alone, he pretty much single handedly started rock and roll in the UK and Europe, before Cliff there was nothing after Cliff there was everything, without him The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Kinks and the whole British rock invasion wouldn't have happened. A far more significant act that Rush, Joan Jett, Heart and Deep Purple put together.

No disrespect to Cliff Richards. I do love his song; 'We Don't Talk Anymore'. I brings back fond memories of 1st grade.
Your attempt to put him on the same pedestal as Rush, Joan Jett, Heart and Deep Purple has got to be the funniest post I've ever!  
If you're gauging by hits in every decade, then the group Chicago needs to on the list. They are phenomenal and have had hits consistently since the late 1960s - not just 1 hit per decade like Cliff Richards.

Once again, the New York Dolls are snubbed. If it wasn't for the New York Dolls, you wouldn't have The Ramones, R.E.M., the Sex Pistols, Talking Heads, the Pretenders, and Blondie. They were also a bit of an influence on Aerosmith as well. That's just the tip of the iceberg, as they also influenced a lot of the "hair bands" of the 1980s as well. They were the act that got the NYC rock music scene of the 1970s started. I guess being snubbed by the RRHoF is David Johansen's penance for inflicting the world with his Buster Poindexter persona.....

It's not so much who shouldn't be there (I don't consider myself in a position to judge that), but who got in before who.

Like, Madonna and Grandmaster Flash got in before Metallica, Jeff Beck, The Stooges, Alice Cooper, etc...

And of course, the bands that have been ignored, like Rush, Deep Purple, etc.

Ahhh, now you're going to get me into the whole "labeling genres" debate. If what passes for punk is an insult, then don't call it punk! Who cares, anyway?

Hell, my favorite genre overall is probably metal, and metal is chock full of people who like to categorize, down to minutiae that I wouldn't even consider. I just don't get it, have never gotten it, and will never get it. Genres are useful for categorizing music in a store.....that's about it.

Hell yes without Cliff (and The Shadows) you wouldn't have had the British rock invasion and all music that flowed from it, I'm also pretty sure his 300 million records sales eclipse the total sales of Rush, Joan Jett, Heart and Deep Purple combined. I don't like Cliff I never have but as someone who basically started everything from the UK and European side of things his omission is glaring, he should have been inducted in the first couple of batches.

So I'd put him on a pedestal far above a the 4 acts you mentioned, he's up there with Elvis and The Beatles.

Not only that, they capture the pure essence of rock; sex, drugs, alcohol, money, sex and more sex. Also really talented shredding guitarist and an occasional kicka$$ drummer and/or operatic vocalist. Punk is just rebellion without the sex, talent or money.
Hair metal Gods I'm partial to is Whitesnake, Ratt, Dokken, Motley Crue, Night Ranger as well as 80s Kiss, Vinnie Vincent and Heart.

 Wow!

  

Please! Hair metal in no way captures the pure essence of rock. It's the essence of rock put through a ridiculous producer's sheen, and coated in spandex, eyeliner, and hairspray.

For the essence of rock, I look toward ACDC, 70s Aerosmith, the Stones, the Who, Zeppelin, Van Halen, etc. Nothing beats guitar (or two), bass, drums, and some nice slightly hoarse vocals. No studio sheen required. I mean hell, don't get me started on the completely fake drum sounds on 80s metal songs. Whoever decided to start layering drum samples over acoustic drums needs to be shot. Rock and roll has to have that slight looseness in there.

Nothing against 80s metal (there's no whole genre of music I hate) - like I said, I like some of the songs. But geez, I'd never call that the essence of rock! Some great party anthems and arena rockers, sure.

Hank Marvin has been sited as an influence on the following Eric Clapton, David Gilmour, Tony Iommi, Mark Knopfler, Neil Young, Steve Clark and Carlos Santana.

An element of fantasy pretty much puts it in the realm of metal, which is a different story than rock. Again, not always, but quite often.

Quoting Superfly (Reply 20):

Yeah, it pretty much captures everything I hate about that period (although that song is by no means one of the worst offenders; it's not a terrible song). Let me list stuff that bugs me:

1.) No looseness - everything is too polished, sound-wise.
2.) No groove - sorry, but in most of those '80s hair-metal songs, there's not much of a groove. Indeed, the drums and bass are relegated to pumping out 8th notes, but they don't even do that with any feel. May as well get a drum machine.
3.) Too much focus on guitar/vocals - yes, they are generally the stars of any band. But great rock'n'roll encompasses great interplay between all the instruments and the voice. This follows from #2, and is sorely lacking. If they only show closeups of the drummer when he hits a cymbal or flips a stick, you know there's not much going on there.
4.) Drum Sounds - mentioned this before, but I've NEVER heard a real drum kit that sounds anything like that. That in itself isn't necessarily bad, but it's such a large and compressed sound, that there's no room for dynamics or subtlety.
5.) Ridiculous amounts of reverb - ties in with the overall sound; leaves no room for dynamics or subtlety.

I'm sure there's more, but as I recall, this thread was once about Rush.

That's mainly why I like it. Whitesnake is a sophisticated metal band. The orchestrations and the final polish is something I'd expect with Burt Bacharach, Steely Dan and other artist that are meticulous about the final output of their sound.

That wouldn't work so well. Notice how this bass player often throws his bass in the air to show off his large erect package. This is to get the ladies in the audience wet and excited to bring more ladies backstage.

That's the point. It's supposed to scare your with a rhythmic assault and sound that doesn't exist in the real world.
You may appreciate the guitar layers and diminished chords towards the end of the song.

True. However a lot of your critiques of Whitesnake is the same many Rush fans have of the Hold Your Fire album.

Jann Wenner is a moron who wields his power over this institution farcically, arbitrarily and capriciously.

In fact, the place is a joke. It’s just a punchline now. Makes for a nice tourist trap and a glorified Hard Rock with memorabilia and many some interesting bylines on music itself, but it’s a disgusting farce.

If you want to have a so-called Rock Hall, and leave out KISS, Yes, Chicago, Peter Frampton, Rush, Steve Miller Band, Dire Straits, Mark Knopfler, Journey, Iron Maiden, The Cure, Grank Funk Railroad, the Doobie Brothers, John Mayall, Johnny Winter, Judas Priest, Styx, Ted Nugent, Deep Purple, Boston, ELP, Jethro Tull, REO Speedwagon, The Cars, Three Dog night, Mitch Ryder, Hall and Oates and on and on and on…., well, then it’s not even worth the brick and mortar it was built with.

Thing is you are looking at Cliff from a US perspective, he was never popular in the US, but the guy has sold nearly 300 million records, how many others in the Hall of Fame has some more, only 10-15 acts, all of which have been popular in the US. And I'll say it again, without Cliff kicking it off in the UK modern music as we know it would be different.

Old school punk is great; what passes for punk these days is an insult. The only time you see the Clash and Broadway in the same sentence, it's about the 1991 box, not some musical.

Ahhh, now you're going to get me into the whole "labeling genres" debate. If what passes for punk is an insult, then don't call it punk! Who cares, anyway?

Hell, my favorite genre overall is probably metal, and metal is chock full of people who like to categorize, down to minutiae that I wouldn't even consider. I just don't get it, have never gotten it, and will never get it. Genres are useful for categorizing music in a store.....that's about it.

Johnny Cash,

Have you heard the song Hurt, a collaboration with Nine Inch Nails?


Quoting KiwiRob (Reply 31):
Thing is you are looking at Cliff from a US perspective, he was never popular in the US, but the guy has sold nearly 300 million records, how many others in the Hall of Fame has some more, only 10-15 acts, all of which have been popular in the US. And I'll say it again, without Cliff kicking it off in the UK modern music as we know it would be different.

Yeah, and don't forget those power house of rock bands from the U.K.; Wham, Culture Club, and the Spice Girls.

All kidding aside, Rush being in the R & R Hall of shame is really a minor achievement in their long career. I have for a long while believe that they don't need to be in this so called shrine, don't for the world see why they would care. It would be fitting if they snubbed the Induction ceremony if they are actually voted in.



Rush for ever; Yankees all the way!!

Well said.

I actually like those bands - Wham and Culture Club actually consist of good musicians. It's just too bad that the era in which they were famous, looks and appearance was noticed more than their musical talent. That was just the way things were in the 1980s.
Although I like those bands, I wouldn't put them in any Hall of Fame. Of that era, I would pick Duran Duran.

Well rock originated in the United States after-all. This Hall of Fame IS in Cleveland which is in the United States. So of course it's going to be from a US perspective. Not saying Cliff Richard shouldn't be in the H.O.F. either.

That's not a collaboration. It's a cover.

"Hurt" was originally released on The Downward Spiral, a Nine Inch Nails album. Johnny Cash covered it on one of his American albums.

They've specifically stated that they don't care. But I truly doubt they would snub the induction ceremony.

Downward Spiral was released back in 1993/1994. I think Johnny Cash's cover of it was probably his last song he did before he died. He does change the lyrics from "Crown of Shit" to "Crown of Thorns". I almost have to say I like the Johnny Cash version better too.

Its kind of amazing with all the rock bands that did covers of Johnny Cash songs over the years that Johnny Cash is covering a rock and roll song.


Speaking of covers and back on the subject of Rush. You don't hear too many Rush covers out there. Dream Theater does some live and there were a couple Rush Tribute albums made with various musicians getting together. Rush music is too complex for most bands, but I am still surprised that no one real big has done a cover of their music that would get rock radio airplay.

Actually there has been one tribute album. It didn't go over so well and the artist that participated are probably happy that many are unaware that project. Many of the washed up 80s hair metal guys took a break from their jobs at the auto detailing shop and make a Rush tribute album in 2005.
Keep in mind, you're going to have to have a sense of humor while listening. Vikkyvik will probably hate it.   
You have Kip Winger, Sebasian Bach of Skid Row, Randy Jackson of Zebra and Jani Lane of Warrant doing a Rush tribute album. What could POSSIBLY go wrong?
Here are some samples.

No questions about that, but it was the British in the 60's who made it what it is today.

So would I, and they still make good music today.

Probably!  

On another note, some comments from Alex Lifeson pretty well expressing their views on the nomination:

"I'm really happy for the Rush fans who feel that it is really important, and I hope we're inducted for their sake," guitarist Alex Lifeson said by phone from a tour stop in Philadelphia. The band plays Saturday in Newark. "Personally it never really mattered to me, but at the same time it's nice to be nominated."
