    Who was snubbed on this year’s ballot? The biggest shockers might have been Pat Benatar and Dave Matthews Band not making it since both led the fan voting. Others on the ballot not selected were Judas Priest, Kraftwerk, MC5, Motorhead, Rufus featuring Chaka Khan, Todd Rundgren, Soundgarden and Thin Lizzy.

    How the “F” is Pat Benatar NOT in the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame? That fact after 37 years in existence she has not been recognized tarnishes the legitimacy of the organization.

    ^^^ That reminds me of one of my favorite bands, Sawyer Brown that is. They have been on the radio since 1984 and they still have yet to be put into the country music hall of fame. The lead singer is in his 60s now and he can still bust every move that he is known for and his voice hasn’t changed one bit either! One of my most favorite female singers has been on the radio since 1972 and she is still not in there yet, Tanya Tucker…I’d like to thank the powers that be for letting the rest of us know just how far their brain trains have no ability to travel. (shaking my head)

    God bless you and our overlooked favorites always!!!

    Holly

    P.S. What do people need to do in order to make it in there?

    Go here to check out my most favorite singer James Otto!

    Whitney Houston and The Notorious B.I.G. over Kraftwerk and Rufus ft. Chaka Khan is a crime.

    Warren Zevon, who hasn’t even been nominated for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame yet.

    Rufus featuring Chaka Khan was the biggest snub.

    Kraftwerk getting snubbed again. Since the hall of fame has expanded their definition of what they consider “rock” there is simply no excuse.

    Kraftwerk had a huge influence on the music of the 80’s and indirectly all those people like Jack Antonoff who are re-creating that 80’s synth-pop sound.

    Here is a quote from Martin Gore of Depeche Mode:

    My dream was to combine the emotion of Neil Young or John Lennon transmitted by Kraftwerk’s synthesizers. Soul music played by electronic instruments.

    Here is another one:

    For anyone of our generation involved in electronic music, Kraftwerk were the godfathers,” says Martin Gore of Depeche Mode. “Radio-Activity in 1975, Trans-Europe Express in 1977, The Man-Machine in 1978: they still sound modern today. The electronic scene blew up after those pivotal albums. There were a lot of punks who kind of moved into a futurist scene, looking for ways to take music beyond the confines of the rock genre.”

    Depeche Mode were induced this year.
