Why is she even going to be considered eligible?

She actually is talented. Not a great voice, but she has catchy songs, personality, and she writes all her songs. No rock hall, obviously, or country either. She doesn't fit the traditional country mold. She is so hot though. Even when she did a duet w/Def Leppard. I love Def, and what she failed to do musically she made up for with supreme hotness. Hotness is the wrong word. She has a pretty face, not a smoking body. I apologize for this post. The point of it all is that I want to do you, Miss Swift. No hall for you, though. Absolutely not. As long as Kiss, Rush, Ted Nugent, Deep Purple, Def, and a lot of other real rockers are left on the doorstep, we will not stoop this low.

I'll let (all of) you finish, but you know why Taylor Swift won't get in the hall? Because Beyonce had the best video EVER!

Seems unlikely--- her current stardom strieks me as very inexplicable--- but hey! ya never know. It depends on how she matures as an artist during the next few decades.

Other cleancut teen idols have made the Hall: the Beatles. Michael Jackson, the Beach Boys etc. If the Hall does admit her, Beyonce & Kanye need to be involved in the celebration.

A bit too early to state, isn't it?

Taylor Swift isn't real country either

She is never, ever, ever getting inducted.

Like ever.

My question is just what impact has she made on music these days?

Female artists confessing thier feelings is nothing new in rock n' roll as singers like Joan Baez and Joni Mitchell told us thier feelings in songs like "Diamonds & Rust" and "Blue", but these artists also sang about other subjects too.

The problem with Miss Swift is that's all she doses in her songs is sing about her ex-boyfriends. Her music is more for teenage girls then anyone else.

The music she is doing is nothing groundbreaking or new as we've heard it all before, so I just don't get why so meny are parising her as a great singer/songwriter.

Also, her guitar playing isn't anything amazing and the fact that she acts like a 16 year old trapped in a 22 year old's body.

All in all, I would vote no for Taylor Swift if the Hall chose to nominate her unless she starts going down a differant musical diection.

So sense most of the posts on here are from a good deal of time in the past, I'd just like to point out that despite the fact of her earlier songs repetitive nature, she has now flowered into someone who has been singing songs that instill a sense of feminism in today's society. She's not all about break-ups and everything that she was once known for, she sings of being a strong independent woman. I believe she will definitely get in, not initially most likely, but because she has had both commercial and universal success, which is why we are even considering her.

I have to disagree with your comment, Colin, because Taylor hasn't grown up at all in my opinion. She still acts very childish in her songs. "Shake It Off" is a good example of this. It's just Miss Swift telling everyone who hates her that she doesn't care. Sorry, Taylor, but we all need to be able to take criticism in life, even you. The music she's doing is nothing groundbreaking or new as we've heard woman artists whine and moan about their relationships or tell people off, so I personally don't think that she's grown up one bit.

Will she get inducted? Could happen, but I don't know. She'll have to write more adult music if she's going to win my vote.

Posted by Andrew on Thursday, 01.29.15 @ 22:09pm

I agree here. I own her album Speak Now and the singles are great. But I will have to say no to this. Who knows? She could surprise us.

Posted by Josephine on Sunday, 06.26.16 @ 03:34am

I definitely feel like she will eventually become a Joni Mitchell for her generation. She has proven longevity and has the songwriting talent (the songs she wrote on Speak Now and Red are proof enough). After her pop domination is over with, I feel she will unleash her truest potential.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame isn't just for rock artist you know... people are getting mad at eligible artist that aren't rock musicians but the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame isn't just for rock artist.
