I get accused of being a tyrant (no pun intended) around here so let me qualify this...

On these grounds - who won't you vote for?

Again, I'm not going after you, I'd just want to know.

I suppose I should have expanded on the original statement, but as is when you're at work, I tend to rush.

I didn't mean to just leave it at "Hey they have skill, let's vote for them."
That would then encompass almost any band fit for nomination here.

I guess what I was trying to say was that they have a certain skill and appeal that surpasses what I'm normally used to, and therefore are fit to earn this. Again, I'm no fan, but I find my self listening to Ænima every now and then. I'm acknowledging the fact that I feel Tool is better than most bands out there. Tool challenges most listeners to go beyond just listening, incorporating visuals and the like. I just feel it's rare that a band can pull that off anymore.

My apologies if that doesn't answer your question. It's been a long day and I'm a bit hazy-headed.

No that was what I was looking for. I think for me that band would be the police. I like a few songs alright though the catalouge ain't for me, but just the same I can recognize how their unreal and would end up voting for them.

i'm somewhat torn on this one. on one hand, i strongly dislike their first two albums and i feel that they get more recognition for being "musically talented" than for actually writing two solid albums. on the other hand, i really like the direction they've taken and i think they do a good job staying relevant by combining elements of sludgier influences like Sleep & Kyuss with progressive undertones. and while i disapprove of the simpering fanaticism they certainly know how to write a good fucking song when they want to.

I tend to vote more based on recognition on Mb then actual talent, so in this case it would be a no. I will abstain for a bit though and re-evaluate their music before deciding. It's just hard for me to say yes to a band, no matter how much I like them, that I don't feel the majority of MB recognize.

is going against the grain that hard for you?

i'd say a good reason why they get shot down here is because their fans are rabid morons. it really has nothing to do with their music -- look to Lateralus for justification if you want.

It has nothing to do with 'going against the grain'. I feel that because the bands in the Hall of Fame represent this entire community, popularity among members should be a factor, and that acts shouldn't be voted in just based on talent.

not in your vote it shouldn't.

in whether they get into the hall of fame? most definitely; that's why we have a poll.

I said yes.

Tool are far from my favorite band, but I do enjoy listening to them. Also I feel their skill and consistency should bump them in.

I voted no, not because I don't like them, but because I don't find them to be hall of fame material. Great trippy metal though, and I got the chance to see them live over the summer which was a fantastic show.
