One of the treasures of the late 80s, made the Emo Scene (which no longer exists regardless of what MTV tells you), should definitely be in. But that certainly doesn't mean they will.

With all do respect... what the #### are you talking about? Fugazi was NEVER anything close to emo... they were good. There would be no indie rock after the 80's without them, but i fail to see any connection to emo - besides maybe that "indie" is a terrible name for a genre of music and because of that, it's basically come to mean "whiney little bitch rock" and not "Not on a major label."

I advise you to re-examine the history of Emotive Hardcore as a genre and then apologize to me personally.

Ian, you do realize that Fugazi practically invented Emo . . . right?
Posted by Matt on Friday, 12.15.06 @ 11:24am
While Fugazi itself didn't really invent it, nearly everyone involved had already played in an early emo band (Piccioto and Canty from Rites of Spring, Mackaye from Embrace), so yeah, they were the forerunner of a genre whose name today gets misused constantly to label bands that have nothing in common with the '80s hardcore scene.

"Holy crap, is this the same William who was against the Beastie Boys being inducted?"
Posted by William on Wednesday, 01.24.07 @ 22:35pm
Um...Fugazi was one of the bands who created the emo scene along with Rites of Spring (another band who should get into the RRHOF)

Calling early-career Fugazi is debatable to a certain extent (Bulldog Front anyone?), but their career thereafter seems to be post-hardcore alt-rock to me.

To clarify the Fugazi/Emo thing...

fugazi most definatly deserve a spot in the rnr hal of fame. they feel and write their music in a unique way, there are battles within their sound and whats more real than that? they've done so much for alt music all though they are not credited nearly enough. one of the greatest bands off all time

Depressing thought of the day:

There's nothing wrong with the Bee Gees' induction...I think they're most deserving. What I think is depressing is someone who chooses to bolster artists by putting down others...low rent!!!
Posted by Gitarzan on Wednesday, 06.30.10 @ 20:17pm
Lex, there's nothing worse, IMO than slamming another artist to elevate another, if Fugazi should get in the RRHOF it's because they have enough Influence and Innovation to warrant consideration, NOT because "the Bee Gees were inducted."
Posted by Tahvo Parvianen on Thursday, 07.1.10 @ 03:10am
Fugazi definately deserves it.

Excuse me for having to be Mr. Cynic on the Internet with his crushed dreams of creating a Sonoma county punk scene and overly-eclectic musical taste, but the people who induct the hall of famers are rockists. They only take notice of bands that are on the majors (or a major subsidised indie), have fame in the magazines, and are favorites of the judges. They didn't put the people who started rock in the hall of fame. Why would they put Fugazi, or Go4, or Mission Of Burma, or Quicksand, or Rites, or Jawbreaker, or any of the bamds that really deserve to be in there? Even the Sex Pistols refused to appear at the induction ceremony. The place really is a piss-stain. They wanted the Sex Pistols in the hall of fame, but ignored PiL,

Bullshit. The Hall is not "rockist." They have repeatedly rejected blues rock, punk rock, arena rock, progressive rock and metal and heavy metal/extreme metal. They have never inducted...
Posted by Hunter Morrow on Sunday, 09.1.13 @ 14:55pm
Wow...emo? Ian Mackay would laugh his arse off if he heard that. I challenge you to name one single song that deals with anything close to Emo...

Anyone who doesn't know punk inside and out can't say that Fugazi didn't have a tremendous influence on the underground punk movement in the 80's is completely ignorant of the genre. Ian Mackye who formed The Teen Idols as well as Fugazi changed the whole scene paving the way for the grunge movement. Without Fugazi there would have been no Sonic Youth, no Circle Jerks, and the biggie No Nirvana. That whole genre rested on the shoulders of the underground punk movement in the 80's that built up and finally exploded and killed the Horror of Hair Bands that dominated so furiously and wreaked havoc on music. I am thankful for Fugazi for leading the way for the music that finally ended the era of the worst music since Disco. Because of Fugazi I no longer had to hear crap like Poison, Warrant, Motley Crue and the rest of the garbage. They were crushed and forgotten. It was a happy and victorious time for people like me who wanted music back. Induct Fugazi. FUGAZI FOREVER! !

Fugazi is brilliant the notions that they used to display their morals and ideals were revoloutionary. 13 Songs is one of the best compilation albums I have ever had the fortunate opportunity to listen to. Ian Mckaye is also quite an intelligent fellow with many assets that put him and his bad well above their contemporaries. Despite that being said they will most likely not be present for not as many casual music fans have heard of them. The rock hall panders too much in my opinion.
