Cannibal Corpse? No! They're most gross band I've ever heard.

I like metal but Canibal Corpse is the dumbest band I have ever heard.The only people who listen to this are immature teenages trying to be macho and tuff.No thank you.

These guys scare the shit out of me.

I think you could also agree that they have a terrible name marv (could be another Butthole Surfers story here)

And awful album covers too.

Couldn't agree with you more Dude Man. "Butchered at Birth" probably has the most disgusting album cover I've ever seen. Completely tasteless!

Nobody over the age of 16 should take Cannibal Corpse seriously. They are a bad joke. The group members should be ashamed of themselves (at their age, acting like dumb adolescents)

Thier cover of "Zero the Hero" is easily one of the worst cover songs I have ever heard. Even Cookie Monster would be ashamed of how awful death metal vocals are(lol).

Despite the fact that some people don't take Cannibal Corpse seriously, they were the pioneers of gore metal. And to get into the rock and roll hall of fame you have to be unique. So whether or not you like Cannibal Corpse, the fact still remains that they created an entire genre themselves.

They must be in! They influenced pretty much every eath metal, deathcore, and other 'core' modern bands!

"Despite the fact that some people don't take Cannibal Corpse seriously, they were the pioneers of gore metal"- Nighthawk

What the heck is "gore metal"? If this guy was refering to death metal he's wrong. Possessed, Death, Sepultura, Morid Angel, Obituary, Deicide, etc. all had albums out before them. Just vote no people!

I had thought Cannibal Corpse created a genre called "Brutal Death Metal" (basically, just pushing the limits of brutality), but I see nothing about it in the Wikipedia article on death metal.

Dude Man, I've also seen Cannibal Corpse linked to something called "Slasher Metal," but I would honestly have to agree with you: even if Cannibal Corpse was innovative, it doesn't seem they were innovative enough to justify induction in anything but a straight-up Metal Hall of Fame.

Good List. KISS and Starship should not be on there though. There is always Marilyn Manson

Posted by Mike on Saturday, 09.12.09 @ 11:47am

dude, these guys pioneered a lot of modern metal subgenres (death metal, deathcore etc.) i mean that counts for something

Posted by miguel on Friday, 12.18.09 @ 21:57pm

that counts for something

Posted by miguel on Friday, 12.18.09 @ 21:57pm

It does. But that something is definitely NOT the RRHOF

Posted by Bassmaster on Friday, 12.18.09 @ 22:19pm

rrhof will probably induct every hair metal band before real metal bands

Posted by sdfg on Sunday, 12.27.09 @ 12:19pm

I always considered real metal bands Sabbath, Zeppelin, Maiden etc... Not this try hard shit.
