The rules: Post a video of one song by one band that you think should be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Only one video/song per post, and let others have a turn before you post 17 KISS videos in a row. Feel free to add commentary.

I'll start:

[ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F8nlQ4VI4Uk]Hall & Oates- She's Gone (Live, 2003) - YouTube[/ame]

Hall and Oates. They took the Philadelphia soul sound mainstream. Daryl Hall has one of the best pop rock voices ever. Effortless falsetto and a powerful vibrato. If you grew up in the 70s and 80s, songs like "Sara Smile," "She's Gone," "Private Eyes," "Kiss on my List," "You Make my Dreams," "Maneater," "Did it in a Minute" and "I Can't Go for That" were all over the FM airwaves.

Duran Duran should be in the "Rock & Roll HOF" they been around since 1978 and have hit songs like, "Hungry Like the Wolf", "Save A Prayer" "Is There Something I Should Know" and this one "Rio".

The reason for my great disdain and seething disgust for the rock and roll hall of fame.

The most disgraceful snub in the history of contemporary music.

There is no excuses that they didn't get voted in for their first year of eligibility.

And as always.......
You are dead to me Rock and Roll hall of Fame!
Fuck you! Fuck you! Fuck you! Hall of Shame.

And now, 4 minutes and 33 seconds of zen.

There's a simple reason these bands aren't in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Rush? Sucks.
Hall & Oates? Sucks.
Duran Duran? Sucks.

Everybody is titled to there opinions and I can only agree with you on one band that sucks, I'm not really a fan of Rush. I could never get into there music and my brother-in-law loves them, so he kinda cram them down my throat. But for Hall & Oates and Duran Duran I love there music, they are fantastic!

I just looked at some of the "inductees". Guns-n-Roses? U2? Van Halen? John Cougar Mellonhead?? There's too much crap in it to take it seriously.

I second Hall & Oates.
They are the #1 charting duo in music history.

I don't see how Bonnie Raitt got inducted before them.

It makes more sense to have Al in there than a LOT of the ones that are already in.

Genius? Quite possibly.

Has a degree in architecture? Sure does.
I would have to agree, Wierd Al is a FREAKING genius. Seriously. How many other guys that parody music have certified platinum albums and top ten hits? Who? And who keep coming back again again.
