The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame announced their 2007 induction class on January 8th.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Class of 2007:
- R.E.M. (Bill Berry, Peter Buck, Mike Mills, Michael Stipe): In their first year of eligiblity, R.E.M. gets inducted.
- Van Halen (Michael Anthony, Sammy Hagar, Alex Van Halen, Eddie Van Halen, David Lee Roth): Van Halen finally got on the ballot after four years of eligibility, and the voters quickly voted them now that they had the chance. Note, Gary Cherone didn't make the list.
- Patti Smith: Smith ends her losing streak and gets in after seven straight years of being nominated.
- Grandmaster Flash & the Furious Five (Kid Creole, Cowboy, Grandmaster Flash, Melle Mel, Mr. Ness, Raheim): Grandmaster Flash & the Furious Five become the first rap artists to be inducted into the Hall.
- The Ronettes (Estelle Bennett, Ronnie Spector, Nedra Talley): The Ronettes had been eligible since 1988, but this was the first year they were on the ballot.
"We couldn’t be more proud to honor this unique, diverse group of rockers, rappers, singers and poets. This is what rock and roll is all about," said Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation President and C.E.O., Joel Peresman.
Notably, there were no inductees in the "non-performer" category this year. The full press release can be found here.
Future Rock Legends and its users correctly predicted four of the five inductees .
The inductees will be honored at the annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Ceremony on March 12th, 2007.
A list of the nine nominated artists in 2007 can be found here.

The inductees for 2007 were announced 20 miutes ago on Billboard.com. R.E.M., Van Halen, Patti Smith, The Ronettes, and Grand Master Flash are to be inducted March 12th 2007. The Stooges were robbed yet again.

Bullshit. No way in hell should the Ronnettes and Grandmaster Flash be in there period, let alone over The Stooges.

Congrats to Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five.. they changed the face of music.. without them there would be no hip hop!! Big up to old School..

Congratulations to all who are going to be inducted!

Well, I was right about the Ronettes, but I was wrong about Grandmaster Flash & the Furious Five. Looks like the Stooges will have to wait two more years--next year's line-up is crowded with shoo-ins, starting off with Madonna and Metallica.
Rush, the most unique rock band snubbed again. Enough said!
Posted by Bob on Monday, 01.8.07 @ 13:43pm
Not only did the voters hit four of five, but then one we didn't guess was sixth in the ballot. I guess we got some smart cookies on this board.

Still no Grand Funk Railroad. Sure, the critics HATED them, but the fans proved time and time again they didn't give a shit what the critics thought. There is no justice!
Posted by Melodie on Monday, 01.8.07 @ 14:08pm
Still no Kiss, rush, or the stooges.Get on the ball lets get some real bands in hear.GrandmasterFlash?Hardly Rock and Roll
Posted by Lance on Monday, 01.8.07 @ 16:24pm
what a shame that a great 60's band such as The Dave Clark Five did not get voted in.They were a tremendous influence on many artists of that time and their musical talents still shine through today.
Posted by karen on Monday, 01.8.07 @ 16:31pm
When will bands like Rush,Yes,and even Steve Miller get in? Just make sure there is a spot for Slayer in a few years o.k?
Posted by Chris on Monday, 01.8.07 @ 17:08pm
Can someone please tell me why Rush is not in the Hall of Fame? They have 20+ gold albums for Christ's sake! Not to mention they probably inspired a good number of today's musicians.
Posted by Aaron Noe on Monday, 01.8.07 @ 19:52pm
If record sales had anything to do with quality, there'd be loads more bands than Rush clamoring for a spot.
Posted by William on Monday, 01.8.07 @ 19:54pm
As a testament to Rush's great influence, during the National Championship football game the Florida Marching Band was playing "2112". Can you imagine that? Rush has been around for 30 years and they STILL tour. The fact that they are not in the RRHF is a crime.
Posted by Aaron Noe on Monday, 01.8.07 @ 21:47pm
I've heard marching band versions of Lido Shuffle by Boz Scaggs before. I don't see a glut of petitions for Boz to get in the hall.
Posted by Kit on Monday, 01.8.07 @ 22:15pm
Dave Clark 5 was such an influence on the Van Halen brothers that it would have been nice if they'd made the cut too. Just for sentimental reasons.
Posted by Henry M. on Monday, 01.8.07 @ 22:18pm
It's kinda fun to guess who the artists will choose to present them on the night of induction. Here are some early projections:
Posted by Henry M. on Monday, 01.8.07 @ 22:31pm
The big drama leading up to the ceremony, of course, will be the Van Halen configuration that night. My guess is that Roth and Hagar will split the duties (two songs each) but neither will share the stage with each other. No Gary Cherone. I think Michael Anthony will play bass on three songs, with Eddie's 15-year-old son Wolfgang playing on the other one. Projected setlist: Eruption/You Really Got Me/Right Now/Finish What Ya Started/Jump
Posted by Henry M. on Monday, 01.8.07 @ 22:49pm
From the poll at:
Well once again its a slap in the face because kiss, judas priest and deep purple or bands that been around for ever havent been picked for this year. Kiss helped out vanhalen when they got started in this bussiness. Judas priest being the medal gods that they are should be there ,so this should be hall of shame no respect here !!! or for them.
Posted by Dale on Wednesday, 01.10.07 @ 22:32pm
I would be really happy if Deep Purple made it in. I'm indifferent toward Judas Priest, and could care less about Kiss ever getting a spot.
Posted by William on Wednesday, 01.10.07 @ 23:56pm
Still pissed to see that Jeff Beck hasn't been inducted yet. I guess helping invent hard rock isn't good enough, not to mention being one of the greatest guitarists alive.
Posted by steve on Friday, 01.12.07 @ 14:19pm
still pissed that judas priest, motorhead, i8ron maiden, def leppard, deep purple, rush have been ignored.
Posted by martin on Friday, 01.12.07 @ 22:07pm
Man i was so pissed to see iron Maiden not make it but whats up with Grandmaster Flash not rock and roll If the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is going to start inducting Hip Hop artists then it should Change its name to the Music Association Hall of Fame
Posted by Andy on Tuesday, 01.16.07 @ 07:37am
I agree that bands like motorhead, Priest, and Maiden deserve a spot in the hall, and in the future they will get in (Sabbath got in (eventually) others will follow suit, but these artists (except for the Ronettes who I've never really heard of) have had an influence on rock, even Grand Master Flash (Hip Hop has its place in rock and roll history too. it has its roots in rock & roll and funk after all). i still think the stooges should have gotten in, but they will soon enough, as will artists like MC5,Motorhead, and Alice cooper.
Posted by drp on Tuesday, 01.16.07 @ 11:21am
It will be interesting to see what happens in the next three or four years. Very few groundbreaking acts become eligible. Will the R&R HOF start inducting its backlist of currently eligible acts then?
Posted by Gary on Wednesday, 01.17.07 @ 14:38pm
C'mon van halen ,half there songs were covered.To put them in ahead of bands like genesis and def leppard is sick.This is why nobody really cares about this event each year.
Posted by J DOG on Friday, 01.19.07 @ 10:11am
Why did REM make it their first year while Patti Smith and VAN HALEN took years? What kind of a farce is this place? I don't give them any credibility.
Posted by Bruno on Wednesday, 01.24.07 @ 01:02am
ABBA. enough said, what a travesty that one of the greatest groups of all time has not yet made the Hall?!?! Their range of style is truly a wonder, covering the gamut of musical styles of the 60's, 70's and 80's. And they made music videos well before MTV ca,e along. Please enough, induct ABBA into the Hall.
they only 8had nine nomines last year they should have had 16
Posted by martin on Saturday, 01.27.07 @ 19:19pm
Neil Peart is simply the greatest drummer who has ever lived. Would anyone argue that fact? For that reason alone RUSH deserves to get in.

Rush has 22 consecutive gold records, and is fourth behind The Beatles, The Stones, and Kiss in all-time gold record acquisitions for a band. Fourteen of those albums have gone platinum.

Everyone hates rap here. Yes, it's called the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. No, it doesn't mean other innovative music artists can't get inducted. It would be stupid to have every style of music to have it's own hall of fame. Influencial and innovative rap ARTISTS should be in. The way that all the middle-aged rap haters feel about rap is the same way their parents felt about their music.

Posted by Matt. on Thursday, 02.15.07 @ 08:29am
I agree with the comment on Jeff Beck. Not many solo artists have had the compliments and accolades by Sir George Martin. Jeff helped Tina Turner on her Private Dancer effort, stole the show on Roger Wanters' Amused to Death, arranged Superstition for Stevie Wonder which rocketed him to superstardom. Not enough can be said. But, he never ever got the recognition he deserved. It's because these awards are usually given by press, pr, producers, or other peripherals of the business...NOT musicians. If they were, Pete Townshend also would not be waiting as an individual. Go Jeff......Who Else? to coin a phrase.....
Posted by Jerry Robertson on Monday, 02.19.07 @ 18:31pm
I thought the Police sounded pretty good at the Grammy's. Afterall, it was only one song, and I liked that they did not play the song note for note like the recording, but spiced it up a bit. It was funny to see Sting flub the bass line. I've listened to a lot of live Police, and honestly, live performance was never their strong suit. It is difficult to recreate the heavy atmospherics on stage that they create in the studio. Andy Summers' guitar style especially lends itself more to meticulous studio work vs. rocking out onstage. That said, I'd still see The Police live any day over Rush. I like Rush, but come on, this is the freakin' Police.
Posted by Dezmond on Tuesday, 02.20.07 @ 09:04am
No, Rush is not The Police. On the all-time greatest "power trios" list they rank 4th or 5th behind the likes of Nirvana, Cream, and of course, The Police.

The "Hall" is a joke, its an extension of Jan Wenner's ego. Its Lame!in a crap town.
Posted by The Pretenders Rule on Saturday, 03.24.07 @ 21:03pm
Until Progressive Rock gets its due the entire Hall is a joke. Over 50 Top 40 charted albums from -Yes,ELP,J.Tull and Genesis -- A whole era bypassed and if you add Rush into the mix it gets even more bizarre.
Posted by anthony rubbo on Thursday, 04.5.07 @ 21:05pm
You know, after carefully taking into consideration all of the comments I've read on this site about this and other topics, maybe they should change its name from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame to the Popular Music Hall of Fame. Or, at least something to that effect. Because let's face it: the term "rock and roll" is really non-existent.
Posted by Alex C on Saturday, 04.21.07 @ 01:06am
I compiled a list of everyone that was ever nominated, but not inducted. Hope it's a handy reference. Click induction year on an enshrined artist for more information on who was on the ballot in said year.

Thanks, Garrett for posting the current top 20 .... let the people speak !! Good thing this stuff doesn't affect world politics !!!
Grannd Funk Railroad, Alice Cooper Group, Deep Purple, Igg & The Stooges, The New York Dolls!! Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame is a joke without these great Bands not being in. We need a peoples Rock Hall of fame so the corporate idiots can keep that sorry building in Cleveland to themselves.
Posted by Mark on Monday, 05.7.07 @ 07:54am
the fact that rush & deep purple are not in the hall of fame only points out that the hall is not interested in true hall of famers. Deep Purple were one of the original pioneers of heavy rock, along with fellow snubs Black Sabbath. Just interview just about every hard rock band from the 70's one up. And with Rush, there isnt even a need to comment. Anyone who has seen them in Rio can attest - these guys in their 50's outrock twenty somethings !!!

I know this will meet with some/much resistance, but in reviewing the eligible artists list I see so many glaringly missing significants missing. I know innovators like The Replacements (whom I love), The Beastie Boys, Run DMC, Sonic Youth, etc are also up for the ballot - but there are just way too many gems getting smaller and smaller in that rearview mirror!

Tull's Aqualung is probably the most respected by the criticks of any non-Floyd album. Of course, on the flip side of the same coin, Ian Anderson pretty much declared war on the critics with a series of ever-worsening albums that each railed against the criticisms of the preceding albums. A very depressing cycle.
Posted by Kit on Friday, 05.25.07 @ 20:10pm

I don't really know where this should go, but I just wanna know generally what everyone here's favorites are, and since most of the time our discussions are framed around the Rock Hall (well derr), I figure we should frame a favorites survey around the same. So, here's an idea. How about everyone give their top five bands seperated into the following categories:

Also, there's a gap between "eligible in the next ten years" and "modern act"...for example Belle & Sebastian, one of my absolute favorites, doesn't fall into either category.
Posted by Casper on Tuesday, 05.29.07 @ 18:02pm
Dezmond, a little disappointed in your list. You would take the Cars over Rush....c'mon, get real. You prefer "whose gonna drive you home, tonight?", over pioneers of rock / progressive music (i.e. see 2112). You prefer Mellencamp over Rush??? Didn't you say that: "Yeah, Johnny Cougar's "I Need a Lover" really changed the face of rock and roll." And, Steve Winwood, was that a typo???

Steve Winwood is an incredible musician. His cover of Voodoo Chile almost matches the original for wah-wah fury. I think getting inducted with Traffic is enough honors for him, however. Blind Faith has only one album to their name, Spencer Davis Group also had too short a lifespan, and his solo career leaves me wanting for whatever reason.

Posted by shawn mc on Wednesday, 05.30.07 @ 15:46pm
Funny, but I have actually been one of the strongest proponent for the Evaluate a Solo Career On Solo Work Only Rule myself. Hence, George Harrison should not be in the Hall as a solo artist. But for Winwood, it is somewhat different. He was with so many bands and was the creative spark leading those bands. Spencer Davis Band only got big because of Winwood. After power sharing with Dave Mason ended with Mason's departure, Traffic was essentially Steve Winwood under a different name. I know, Capaldi and Wood contributed admirably, but come on, Traffic was Winwood after Mason left. And with all due respect to Clapton, it was Winwood who was really the guiding light of Blind Faith as well. And besides all of that, if you ignore all of his "group" work, his solo career alone STILL demands strong consideration.

This is the funniest thing I have seen in awhile. Apparently, RS magazine published a list of the top "Guilty Pleasure" artists (i.e. artists people like / love to listen to, but will not openly admit it). Rush is #1 (which to me seemed odd, b/c most Rush fans, like myself will never shut up about Rush). Anyway, here is the top 25:

I did not write the "Quit whining" line above. That being said, I just glanced over the list. Of course it is not perfect, and I agree that is a joke. But, I do like the idea of evaluating bands on a number of different factors, not just one (i.e. influence), as the RHOF does.

Good points Shawn....Overall, any rating system or "hall of fame" is always going to be flawed and subjective to some degree. But, I think taking in a variety of factors is much more complete and accurate.
