Default Guns and Roses in the R&R HOF

I don't think they should be in it. They have 3 of my favorite albums of all time (Appatite for Destruction, Use Your Illusion 2 and Use Your Illusion 1) but they have 2 really crappy albums with the core band and then ther is Chinese Democracy which is like God Father III. I just do not think that is enough to be in it.

There are a ton of other bands that should be in there long before GnR.

Just dig up an episode of That Metal Show where Eddie Trunk goes on a rant about the bands that are and are not in the Rock and Roll HoF.

Madonna is in from what I understand, but bands like Rush are not. I'm not sure if they caved under to political correctness, or if they just have a very very broad definition of Rock and Roll music. Also, I personally do think Guns 'N Roses should be included.

Having a sports HoF is even dumber than a rock and roll HoF.
From a cultural perspective, music is much more important than sports is.
Everybody listens to music but not everybody watches or cares about sports.

Before this thread I have never heard of this Rock and Roll HOF. Is Queen in it?

Of course Queen is in.
Freddy Mercury was gay, nevermind their musical contributions.
They were inducted in 2001.

You're talking about unathletic pussies who play acoustic guitars and whine about their shitty lives, alot of people love the competition and the physical challege.

That said sports have been around longer and music changes every decade (and we're only talkin about "r&r" here). Basketball, soccer, hockey, football, golf, rugby etc have been around for damn near a century (basketball, golf and soccer over that). Not to mention the racial barriers that had to be hurdled by people like Jackie Robinson, Ali, Jim Brown etc. Also the fact that people of every race watch the same sports unlike music, you think Sharky or Griff listen to Wayne, Drake, Wale etc? or you think I listen to anything prior to 1990? or classic rock (bleech)

Trust me sports are globally more important. /rant

^Yeah trust him. He's an expert posting on the internet, he knows!

KISS isn't even in the R&R HOF, so why should GNR be?

They had a crappy album between AFD and UYI. Dont get me wrong I can listen to those three albums for hours on end but does having 3 good albums and 3 shitty ones really qualify someone for the HOF?

Wow.
So because modern sports have been around for almost 100 years they're way more important than music, which has been around as long as mankind has?

Slash alone is enough reason for GnR to be in the Hall of Fame... Sweet Child of Mine is STILL a kick-ass song even after all this time.

KISS is not in the Hall of Fame? That's complete BS.


PS. I don't really care about pretty much any Hall of Fame.

Yes in this sense, there's no divide amongst the races (expect hockey) in team sports, so in terms of being important to cultural it's bigger than music because music has never done that. Also sports influence our economy more than music and last I checked 100+ million people don't tune in to watch concerts.

Also how about the fact that in about 10 years there will be nobody else to put in this joke of a hall? not sure if you've listened to shit out there now, rock and roll died 20 years ago. This has a limited lifespan whereas sports do not. Plus what the basis for getting in? if it's selling record then Beiber should be the next one enshrined.

I don't know maybe this is an age thing, never heard some of the people in there.

^Dude you like the beastie boys. You have as much room to talk about music as Jerry Sandusky does about Michael Jackson.

are you serious?

Music has done more for equality than any sport has. music can break down barriers way more than sports. How many people remember who won a superbowl on any given year or a world series to those who can pinpoint times in history solely based on the music they heard. most music came from an african background and has then been merged into every society on the planet.

^ give me an example from the last 20 years other than Alan Jackson crying about 9/11?

It seems so cheesy to have a hall of fame specifically for rock and roll. Make it a true music hall then maybe, but rock is dead.
