Yeah Thurston has the ultimate hipster blank stare, with the classic Wayfarer sunglasses as well.

It's the picture on the inside of the little booklet you get in a CD when you buy Daydream Nation. I'm glad I found it online, because it took me a while to find it.

A solid yes from me. I've heard five or so of their albums, but it was really only Daydream Nation that stood out for me. Even so, that album alone qualifies them to be in the Hall of Fame.

I meant that in the late 70s - 80s especially, although still today, rock music is generally a domain still dominated by men and for a long time in history it was not often that you saw a gutsy and determined girl rock out on stage with such passion and making such noise. Also as a female myself, seeing Kin in Sonic Youth made her an icon much more relatable to me than any other male rockstars.

(Engine, I'm not criticising anything you said, in fact I agree with you entirely, but your post just reminded me that I should just make this known! )
Yea everything you said is what I meant by 'extra credit'. It really doesn't matter about the politics of the situation - what you said about Kim Gordon is simply true and it makes her that much more appealing.

This is why I'm (sort of) glad I didn't grow up with the internet and access to all the free music I want. It did take years to amass them but now I've got over 1,000 of those little booklets and I treasure a lot of them.

Still haven't listened to this band. A sin, I know. I shall do so immediately.

I'll go with a Yes, though I've only listened to Daydream Nation. For me it's all about being influential, and these guys are.

Alright people...just a reminder that tomorrow night the next nominee will be put forward. So if you haven't gotten your vote in yet for Sonic Youth, get on that!

Also, I've only received one other nomination besides Davey Moore's and a few that had been sent to PMO before his departure as mod (and some of these I won't be putting up). If any of you have an idea of an artist you'd like to put forward, please feel free to send me a PM. Make sure that you have written a little something about why you feel they should be nominated for the Hall of Fame as well. It doesn't have to be long or hugely detailed, but should persuade people to want to vote in favor of your pick.

Happy voting!

Time for a new player kids...

Nominated by Alfred:

The Dillinger Escape Plan


Since their formation in 1997, The Dillinger Escape Plan have been, in my opinion, one of the most groundbreaking, unique, and mind-blowing bands out there. They were a pioneering band in a ridiculously-named metal subsubgenre called "mathcore" which is an experimental, complex, variation on metalcore. Their debut album "Calculating Infinity" is now considered an experimental metal classic. After the departure of original vocalist Dimitri Minakakis, The Dillinger Escape Plan and Mike Patton collaborated in 2002 to create "Irony Is A Dead Scene", a unique Mike Patton twist on the band's original sound. In 2004, the band released "Miss Machine" (with new vocalist Greg Puciato) which saw the band incorporate many pop elements into their sound. This continued onto their 2007 (masterpiece) "Ire Works". Throughout their career The Dillinger Escape Plan has recieved wide critical acclaim for their music. The band is known for their wild and engaging live shows, powerful vocals, complex instrumentation, and experimental edge. I feel that this band deserves to be in the hall of fame because of their many artistic merits, their originality within their genre, their popularity among metal and hardcore fans, and I feel that that they are one of, if not the most deserving metal bands out there.

If you don't like one song, try another.

I'm gonna abstain myself from voting because they seem like the kind of band I might find myself advocating, yet I've never listened to them...
