You nailed it Martin. Green Day, Nirvana and NIN. NIN shouldn't be recognized. A few great minor moments does not a legacy make. Pavement should be in before any of those three, but won't make the ballot.

I would definitely argue for Slint. Mother Love Bone won't get in, but as long as Pearl Jam does, that'll be fine with me. I just prefer ol' Andy Wood.
Posted by William on Wednesday, 06.13.07 @ 23:39pm
Yeah, that is real surprising that you pick the band that is "underground." You are so predictable....

Maybe you just got internet under your rock, but if you haven't been keeping track, there's been more than a decade-long increase in the number and popularity of post-rock (ambient, chamber rock) groups of which Slint was among the first and most influential.

Concerning Slint, love 'em, but I don't think they had enough of major importance to warrant induction. Throw them in the Television category...the best stuff is mind blowing, but there just isn't enough of it.
Posted by Casper on Thursday, 06.14.07 @ 20:18pm
Id also put dream theater in cause they influenced the whole prog metal scene & they came out before tool did
Posted by martin on Saturday, 08.4.07 @ 01:02am
Green Day, Nine Inch Nails and Nirvana are the obvious locks, and Pavement (as of now) is a huge question mark.

How about adding a page for The Sundays? I heard "Here's Where the Story Ends" on the radio today; good song.

Nirvana put rock back on top they will for sure make it first ballot

I'd like to see The Orb, but it's really not gonna happen, even if he is almost entirely to credit for ambient house; a pretty big sub-genre in 90s electronica.

Stick realisticlly and think about what the committe votes on.

They don't have to induct anyone on that whole 2014 list...they might "lose their minds" and start inducting artists that should've been inducted a long time ago, and not pick anyone in their first year of eligibility in any given year. They are starting to develop a real credibility problem...must be why attendance is down...

Compared with the two previous years, 2014/2015 looks from this vantage point like there will be some backlog clearing after some new artists from the era of the rap and thrash revolutions get inducted.
Posted by Julien Peter Benney on Thursday, 09.25.08 @ 18:22pm
Not bad Brentley, not bad at all. I might add or subtract one or two along the way, but not bad. What've you got for 2014 and ahead, if you feel inclined to choose?
Posted by Cheesecrop on Sunday, 12.14.08 @ 16:05pm
hope green day never gets in, NIN and tom petty should be locks, and john petrucci should be in from talent alone.

Posted by Ray on Sunday, 03.8.09 @ 04:25am
There are some interesting choices this year, but to me Pavement is the MUST HAVE (and therefore, has no shot!) Green Day will probably be the only "No Brainer" (Since Petty is in already).
Posted by JeffJ on Wednesday, 04.8.09 @ 10:26am
Not a whole lot of worthy selections here, but there are a few shoo-in candidates.
Posted by AreUExperienced on Monday, 07.13.09 @ 20:11pm
This year is great. We got Green Day (the top '90s punk group) NIN (industrial gods) and Pavement (underground music, might not get in first year, but some year). Those three are locks, but TP snd Lenny Kravitz might also get at least on the ballot.
Posted by anon on Friday, 08.28.09 @ 11:43am
I think Donna Summer now deserves to be introduced to the rock and Roll Hall of fame because she not has made disco music but also hard rock music with singles such as Hot Stuff (with which grammy prize won in 1979 for best female rock vocal performance), the wonderer, He´s a rebel, Proection and now with the super hit Fame (The Game), and besides she has influenced many female artists including Madonna, Beyonce, Kylie Minogue, and others artists

Green Day will.
Posted by MC on Sunday, 04.11.10 @ 15:15pm
Green Day has been around for what, 22 years? Yeah, i think they have, if not maybe longer. they started out when they were only 14 years old. they've inspired so many other rock bands out there today like Weezer, Fall out Boy, Blink 182 and so on, if it wasn't for Green Daym those bands would NEVER make it. Green Day is definately future rock legends if they are not already. i don't see why people have to critize them just because you don't like them, c'mon it pisses me off! Green Day deserves the world's respect, not thier shit. oh and just so all you "haters" know, the next time you little pussy's say that Green Day sucks, just remember the little bands you may like, Green Day also inspired them too and they wouldn't be around without them. They also beat Ac/dc, dave matthews band, and U2 at the 2009 AMA's. i know you might be thinking that how could they beat those bands, if you think about it you'll know that they have ALOT more fans than those people and i mean ALOT!! also, those bands are people called HAS-BEENS. if you don't know, a has-been is a band who USE TO BE POPULAR WHAYYY BACK IN THE DAY!! Green Day will be inducted weather you like it or not, so suck my dick.

Posted by Sam on Friday, 06.25.10 @ 21:03pm
Anyhow, I'll reluctantly concede that Green Day should and will be inducted. Nine Inch Nails should definitely be inducted as well.
Posted by Sam on Friday, 06.25.10 @ 21:04pm

Posted by Sam on Wednesday, 07.21.10 @ 17:35pm
Yeah, well I read your comment Sam, I was literally laughing my ass off while I was reading that pathetic come back. Yeah, uh, nice try. I'm not a preppy school girl, well maybe I am but I don't wear skirts. And you said that you'd be shoving rocks up my ass..... I don't think so, you wouldn't get near me if you tried so stop pretending to be some bad ass cause I highly doubt that you are. Oh and belive it or not, just because I am a preppy school girl doesn't mean that I don't know Green Day's older stuff, bitch, I've been listening to them since the 2nd grade so you wanna judge me again by being a little prettier and blonder than your ugly ass go ahead but at least I have a better chance at getting a boyfriend than you. HAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH.... again, suck my dick XD
Posted by Brittany on Sunday, 08.22.10 @ 22:28pm
Sam, okay I don't know if you are actually agreeing with me on inducting them or if you are against the fact? It seems you've just cut them down like 20 times already? I think you might have some problems. Next time, don't say your gonna do something to someone you have never met because first of all, you don't know me and you might've thought that shoving rocks up my ass would make me "fear" calling you a pussy to your face well guess what, it didn't. I would love to watch you shove rocks up my ass because you wouldn't stand a chance. You would probably like me if you knew me but you don't so stop pretending to be something that your not. By the way, are you a boy or a girl.. or both?
Posted by Brittany on Sunday, 08.22.10 @ 22:37pm
I think you may have caught my comments over-reacted because of the exlamation points and the all caped words but I was just using expression to get my point across. And I have no idea why you mentioned Lamb of God on your comment for me because seriously... I absolutely HATE Lamb of God, and to be honest, I'm sure half of the world would agree with me. They are like psycho satinist who sing about or scream about how much life sucks and how they want to kill everyone. Are you for real? Have they ever been nominated for anything.... I don't think so, and Green Day has nothing to do with those lame bands you named... sorry.
Posted by Brittany on Sunday, 08.22.10 @ 22:45pm
Sam-----> suck my dick. Green Day will be inducted whether your emo ass likes it or not, and if you have a problem with that then I will be the one to shove rocks up your ass.

Medication, Brittany. Take your damn medication.
Posted by DarinRG on Sunday, 08.22.10 @ 23:07pm
This Brittany character has the potential to be this site's new karenjames. It's kind of sad really how someone who has nothing of substance left to say always resorts to personal insults. Please Brittany, go and spew your drivel somewhere else, nobody here wants to hear it.
Posted by Tahvo Parvianen on Monday, 08.23.10 @ 02:24am
Jim, DarinRG, Tahvo Parvianen: I don't care what you think about me because really, I've been a Green Day fan for 10+ years and I'm not trying to insult that Sam asshole I'm just trying to stick up for one of my favorite bands. And yes I do know what I'm talking about, I've only been listening to their music for years now and for people like you guys who have no idea who I am have no right to tell me that I need to take medication and that I supposedly have sexual fantasies about them is ridiculous, Ok seriously, who the hell do you think you are? Have I ever commented on having sexual fantasies, no. You're just putting words in my mouth to try to make everyone think that I'm some kind of asshole, but really I'm not and don't appreciate some of things you have said about me. First of all you don't know me so stop making me look like some kind of prissy little girl who doesn't know what she's talking about. That really pissed me off to see how arogant some of you people can be. This is a site to state your opinions on whether Green Day is worthy of getting inducted, not to isult people on their opinions.
Posted by Brittany on Friday, 09.3.10 @ 16:36pm
Sorry, I meant insult, not isult. LOL
Posted by Brittany on Friday, 09.3.10 @ 16:47pm
Thanks for clearing all that up, Brittany.
Posted by DarinRG on Friday, 09.3.10 @ 17:29pm
Still think I need medication? lol
Posted by Brittany on Friday, 09.3.10 @ 19:35pm
Fair enough, but theres no need for heated arguments here. You may not like Sam's opinion, but try and debate him on musical merits rather than insults next time.
Posted by Jim on Friday, 09.3.10 @ 19:39pm
Yeah after reading those comments I wrote like 3 months ago, I can see why people would get annoyed with me. I did sound like a bitch but I was over-reacting to the situation and when I feel like I'm being attacked, I'm gonna attack back in every way possible whether it hurts people or not but yeah, I understand. Sorry guys.
Posted by Brittany on Friday, 09.3.10 @ 19:42pm
I don't want to cause any fueding either because to me it's not worth it. I really do apologize to everyone here cause I know sometimes I might take things the wrong way and then I start insulting people over dumb stuff just because they didn't agree with me, I hope you guys will accept my apology and for now on I won't take things personally like I do, I've had a problem with taking everything personally and I still need to work on that but therefore, I'm sorry. We're here to support Green Day's induction and not try to pick fights with people that may not agree. Sam, DarinRG, Jim and Tahvo, I apologize.
Posted by Brittany on Friday, 09.3.10 @ 20:07pm
No worries Brittany. And as Jim said you're welcome to join us in the Rock Hall Projected section. This is Green Day's first year of eligibility in our project and they're off to a good start.
Posted by DarinRG on Friday, 09.3.10 @ 20:33pm
I will join it right now and thank you for accepting my apology.
Posted by Brittany on Friday, 09.3.10 @ 20:37pm
No worries Britney, just try to keep it cool.

Posted by Brittany on Wednesday, 10.6.10 @ 08:21am
to areuexperienced: pavement is not as good or even close to be more important than green day, don't ever say that again. green day changed the face of music, i don't really think pavement helped out that much in the music industry....at all. sorry to burst you bubble:(
Posted by Brittany on Tuesday, 10.12.10 @ 08:06am
I don't trust the industry, Brittany. The industry flooded and watered-down the market with boy bands. I do agree that Green Day changed things in the 90's, but to say Pavement didn't make an impact is slightly dishonest. Copied from AllMusic:

Posted by Deven on Wednesday, 11.17.10 @ 23:33pm
Some of these nominations are very questionable. In terms of musicianship I can't see a band like Green Day in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, but based on what they did for the music industry they probably deserve it. Also, I love Gang Starr but I'm a little confused to why a rap group has a chance to go to the rock and roll hall of fame, but if they get in that would be awesome. Nirvana and Nine Inch Nails will and should get in hands down. A band that goes overlooked here is Pavement. One of the great experimental punk bands of all time. They definitely should be in there. If you haven't heard of them check out their album "Slanted & Enchanted." Bob Mould and Tom Petty should also get in.
Posted by Ian on Monday, 01.3.11 @ 10:45am
Forgot to mention the Chili Peppers. They will get in hands down also.
Posted by Ian on Monday, 01.3.11 @ 10:47am
I've been reading a few of the above comments. God you people are insane. Can we all just agree that Green Day has some relevance and deserves some recognition? But to be honest, lets backtrack and now we can agree that Green Day isn't even in the top 500 bands of all time (in terms of musicianship and songwriting). Those spots would be held by bands like Tool, Rage Against the Machine, Soundgarden, Nirvana, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Metallica, Derek and the Dominoes, Bob Marley and the Wailers, Alice In Chains, you know, bands that can actually play their instruments...
