Great early hard rock band. They should get in, the Hall needs more Scottish rockers.

HELL YEAH!! I CANT BELIVE THAT SHITTY BANDS LIKE LED ZEPPELIN ARE IN, AND THE GODS OF HARD ROCK LIKE DEEP PURPLE AND NAZARETH ARE NOT!

Nazareth is a very good group...but the best ever??? I'm glad they're your favorite, but when do you people start being realistic and quit putting others down to bolster them???

I like Nazareth, but I think anybody who calls Led Zeppelin a "shitty band" needs a reality check. If you have to insult artists, insult Madonna. If you can call her an "artist"

Madonna is a genius!

No she isn't worm. Now shut up already. Name one thing that makes her a genius?
Posted by Freeze on Saturday, 12.6.08 @ 14:09pm
Hard to escape you. The # of albums she has sold "talks" ... but your bullshit walks!
Posted by Worm on Saturday, 12.6.08 @ 14:14pm
So I guess you also feel the need to induct Barbra Streisand and Celine Dion?
Posted by Freeze on Saturday, 12.6.08 @ 14:21pm
Sorry worm, but calling Madonna a genius is not a very funny joke.

Who is Worm? Whence came he, and wither hast he gone? Worm, wouldst be ye man, or be ye woman? Prithee, Worm, wherefore came ye outst yor hole in fury, danced about, and as quickly be disappeared?

Nazareth is my favorite band! i guess zappelin r ok...but it's freakin unbelievable that they get in before Nazareth, Uriah Heep, Steppenwolf, Deep Purple and Dio!
Posted by Uriah Heepy on Wednesday, 12.10.08 @ 22:27pm
YES YES YES!!!

Yes! Classic hard-rock. Influenced tons of bands like Motorhead, Judas Priest. Also one of the best voices in the history of rock!
Posted by Steelheart on Saturday, 12.20.08 @ 13:41pm
Best band ever!

Speaking of covers, "Love Hurts" by Nazareth was a cover of an Everly Brothers song. Another I can think of off the top of my head is "Move It On Over" by George Thorogood, originally done by...Hank Williams.

“Love Hurts” could be considered as either one of the greatest songs of all time or one of the worst songs of all time depending on which way you look at it. In fact, “Love Hurts” isn’t the only song like that. Here are some other noteworthy songs that fit that description:

Interestingly enough Grant, I don't think I've ever heard anyone refer to "Love Hurts" as a bad song

Nazareth in the RRHOF? Why? What have they done that was so earth-shattering other than being another "good band?"
Posted by Tahvo Parvianen on Tuesday, 07.6.10 @ 02:57am
How long must they wait they should of already been inducted what the heck man. they were a great early hard rock band. They Need to be inducted

Nazareth has outlived most of the 'two year wonders'. Their versatility of the songs from hard rock to romantic love songs is undeniable. give them a break! They deserve to be recognized. Maybe the political 'players' in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame (sic) just will not recognize real artists and only go by sales. Look at the sales charts for the last 40 years. And still going strong, Rock On Dan!!

I think that a bands total body of work should be a major consideration for induction.
