Frank Zappa
No. Not doubting his influence, i just really dislike his music.

The Clash
Yes, one of the most innovative, experimental punk bands to emerge from the first wave. Their social relevance cannot be ignored either

Bob Dylan
You have to really, has made some of the greatest albums ever. Lyrically peerless.

Pink Floyd
Again, constantly pushing musical boundaries and their sheer audacity on some albums warrants their place.

Big Black
No, i love this band, but hall of fame? There were other bands more important to noise rock.

Tom Waits
Yes, brilliant man.

The Smiths
Yes, some of the most important british albums of the last 30 years.

Chuck Berry
Abstain.

Ive not heard 'Big Black' yet but if you like them then thats all that should matter. The hall of fame is just about 'big' names & 'big' artists & are usually just based on mainstream popularity & to me the best musicians never really get the recognition that they deserve.
I was joking. I don't think anyone gets that upset about it all
Although i think with some of the nominations coming up it'll blow away your stereotype of all HOF's being just big names.

Well it would be a bit pathetic if people got upset about stuff like that y'no.
'Nominations', Perhaps, I think that the hall of fame shouldnt just be 'Rock n' Roll', I think it should embrace all other genres especially Jazz & also Soul,Funk,Metal,Electronic- even Avant Garde stuff (IMO).
I try not to stereotype things but all the hall of fames Ive ever seen are so predictable- Bob Dylan, The Clash, Elvis Presley, blah blah blah.
Now its no that i dont like these bands/artists, its just I think 'Hall Of Fame' is very narrow minded and to me it is unecessary as I dont need confirmation of what music I think is excellent.

'Nominated', not actually inducted. These Hall Of Fame things are totally unecessary in my opinion and I cringe when I continually see peoples narrow minded selections 'The Smiths, Chuck Berry,The Who,Beatles, Stones,blah blah blah.
How many styles have you embraced by having 'Wu-Tang Clan' (whom I dont personally like) & 'Captain Beefheart' (whom I have a few of his albums- 'Safe As Milk' & 'The Spotlight Kid/Clear Spot' but find him a bit difficult to get into (personally prefer Frank Zappa). So 'rap' & 'weird ass 60s rock'. Wow...

Funnily enough, two of those alleged sacred cows didn't get inducted.

It's about classifying MB's sacred cows, not the world's. Which artists are universally liked or close to it by the MB community. The real problem is that not enough people are willing to try out these artists and instantly vote no or abstain, when in fact they may quite like them.

You want someone different to get a chance? You nominate them...

Do you not think though Mirrorball that these Hall of Fame threads have generated good and honest debate and discussion?

Either way, the way these sort of things tend to go is that the obvious ones get in first and eventually everyone starts branching out with their nominations.
