    The Chemicals Between Us is a great song. They deserve it.

    I know the individual members are musically elite but I could care less. Their music is corny as hell.

    Pretty much how I feel. They have some good songs, but on a whole, corny as hell.

    Both of you tools suck. Rush rules. Come up with some rock n roll that isn't already in that deserves better.

    Trouble with kids these days, is they can't understand how difficult it used to be to be a fan of music.

    Without doubt, Europe!

    Seriously, what about Styx? The only band to release 4 multi-platinum albums in a row.

    Cheap Trick

    KISS (musically, these guys are "meh..." IMO, but it's difficult to deny the influence they've had.)

    Dinosaur Jr.

    I'm assuming they aren't in there and they are one of the most important bands of all time.

    It's great to see Rush finally get in. Personally, there's not 1 song they've ever made that I even like, but you can't deny the musicianship of each individual member. It's still a shame Deep Purple has yet to get in. A few others that I think should be there:

    Kiss should also be in. Sucky musicians, but their success and overwhelming influence on rock n roll is astounding.

    Did they hit the music equivalent of 500 home runs? What is the difference between a hall of fame rock band and a non hall of fame rock band? The opinion of 50 music writers. Who gives a **** about stuff like this.

    I can take or leave the R&RHOF, but it affords a nice opportunity to discuss music and the relative worth of certain artists. Completely subjective, of course, but that's the great thing about art.

    Also, gives guys a chance to come in and dump on a discussion they claim to have no interest in.

    So really, it's a win-win.
