Re: Rock Hall of Fame: Radiohead, Rage, Bon Jovi, Depeche Mode Lead Nominees

I know not every one will agree with me but this is actually a pretty good set of artists this time around.

My list:

Moody Blues
Dire Straits
Kate Bush
The Cars
Radiohead

A nod to Depeche Mode...they had a lot of hits, and while they started out as a bubblegum synth pop band, they eventually became serious artists in there own right.

A nod to Judas Priest as well, but they most likely won't get in considering the hall's distaste for metal.

Bon Jovi and Moody Blues Look Good For Hall of Fame

Things aren’t as clear cut in the fan vote for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this year.

In the past, there were normally five acts that were above and beyond the others in the yearly selection process for fans. This year, there is definitely a clear front runner, Bon Jovi, and the Moody Blues, Dire Straits and The Cars are strong but, after that, things bunch up a bit.

The Eurythmics are in fifth with Judas Priest, Depeche Mode and the J. Geils Band not far behind.

The totals as of October 9, 2017.

Bon Jovi – 122466 Votes
Moody Blues – 86246 Votes
Dire Straits – 83820 Votes
The Cars – 72014 Votes
Eurythmics – 54547 Votes
Judas Priest – 48361 Votes
Depeche Mode – 45175 Votes
J. Geils Band – 41994 Votes
The Zombies – 37985 Votes
Radiohead – 31895 Votes
Nina Simone – 27870 Votes
Rage Against the Machine – 26889 Votes
Kate Bush – 21478 Votes
LL Cool J – 19366 Votes
Sister Rosetta Tharpe – 13496 Votes
The MC5 – 12982 Votes
Rufus featuring Chaka Khan – 12054 Votes
Link Wray – 11139 Votes
Meters – 9591 Votes

Radiohead Star Doesn't 'Understand' Rock Hall Nomination

Radiohead's Ed O'Brien says he doesn't "understand" why his band was chosen for consideration for the 2018 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Dr. Dre wasn't. He also admits he's squeamish about such accolades.

"As a British band, it's one of those things that it's very lovely to be nominated, but we don't quite culturally understand it, the guitarist told Esquire. "It's a very American thing. Us Brits are very bad at celebrating ourselves."

O'Brien added, "It's in our DNA to be a little ambivalent with award ceremonies. We haven't had great experiences. I would never want to disrespect anything because obviously some amazing artists have been nominated. But if I'm honest, I don't understand it."

When considering the artists nominated, which includes numerous Brits, including Depeche Mode, Moody Blues, Judas Priest, Eurythmics, Dire Straits and Kate Bush, O'Brien said that the list is lacking in American music and especially in hip-hop.

"It's a little bit thin on black artists and hip-hop artists," he said. "I'm just speaking as a fan of American music, I would have thought that Dr. Dre should have been in there two years ago. His name should be first on the list, way ahead of Radiohead."
