Great, so if they're in the rock and roll hall of fame what does this mean exactly?

It's public confirmation of what we already know -- that they kick ass now, that they have kicked ass in the past, and that they will continue to kick ass in the future. biggrin.gif

Seriously -- it'll confirm their status as one of the all-time greats of rock'n'roll, and would put them on the same level as The Who, Elvis, U2, Bruce Springsteen, and other old-time and not-so-old-time greats. I LOVE how the article states that the age change is being considered "due to the lack of suitable artists who fit the criteria to choose from." This really says something to the modern music industry as a whole: "Y'all can take your Miley Cyrus, Black-Eyed Peas, Britney Spears, Demi Lovato, and the rest of your manufactured pop crap and put it where the sun don't shine!"

This is awesome! I mean, I have no doubt they would've hit the 25 year mark no problem, but it would be cool to seem them inducted sooner!

I think even if they don't change the rules Green Day will still be in the Hall of Fame. I pretty sure about that.

KISS hasn't made it in yet? Really?

Eh, our boys are bound to get it sooner or later, no matter what the rules state. I would give it to GnR before them though.

they'd have to be the youngest band that would be inducted (minus the possibility of nirvana, who in my opinion shouldn't go in, as they were only an influence on rock n roll for 5 years, tops, before kurt died and they disbanded)

Honestly I don't think they should lower it to 20 years. There's a plethora of artists who are eligible under the 25 year rule and have yet to be inducted, even if they really deserve it. I don't think it's right.
People might question the legitimacy of the Hall of Fame if they do this. People might think the artists who got in under the old rule are superior to the new inductees, which isn't the right thing to think. But it'll happen.
Besides, Green Day can wait just 5 more years. smile.gif

I don't see the point of lowering the limit to speed things up. Surely there's someone out there that can be inducted over the next few years ? Even if they're less well known. If Green Day are good enough now, they should be good enough in 4/5 years time.

Also, isn't the whole thing hideously corporate ? I'm sure someone said you have to pay thousands for your own table on the night.

laugh.gif They're running out of good candidates. How about they stop nominating people who have nothing to do with rock and roll, like fucking Madonna. I don't care what she did for music, she is not rock and roll. Seriously, Madonna is in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and KISS isn't? What a fucking joke. I don't see why they think they need new nominees every year. It's supposed to be a hall of fame. Something prestigious. You shouldn't be inducting new acts every single year.

This just means that the RnR Hall of Fame is going to become more of a, to borrow from John Lydon, piss stain. There's going to be younger, shittier bands in there who don't deserve to be in there next to the likes of AC/DC and Aerosmith. Shit guys, in 6 years, they'll be inducting Nickelback, for Christ's sake.

I wouldn't be surprised if they lower it just so they can put in a band like Green Day, to be honest. That said it'd be pretty epic for them to get inducted before they turn forty. They're babies compared to most other acts in there. They'd probably be the first, actually.

But Nirvana don't deserve a place, in my opinion.

That's awsome!

I hope that when Green Day do win it shows these 'Metal Heads' where to go. Even if we have to wait another 5 years then it'll still be good, it means that Green Day is being recognised for what they are; a truly amazing band and among the greats like The Who and Elvis etc. smile.gif

Oh wow, I didn't even think about that, but your right. Being in the Hall of Fame before their forty would be such an amazing accomplishment, and probably would be a first.

The performer inductees are:
ABBA
GENESIS
JIMMY CLIFF

To be fair though, it's not just 'rock' acts that get inducted. This year's crop includes Jimmy Cliff and Abba neither of which are exactly Metallica.

It's not really a big deal to me, I don't need a committee to tell me which bands/acts are legendary or deserve a place in a museum.

I don't like the fact that they'd change the rules only to include people who wouldn't traditionally be eligible.
Seriously, it's only 3 1/2 years anyway.

I'm glad to see the R&R Hall of Fame might be changing its rules. They've been kind of stagnant the past few years.

OMG! I've been waiting for the day they got in this thing! haha.

I know they will someday. It is kind of unfair to those other bands I guess, but Green Day really deserve it. Maybe not this year; I think bands like KISS and Judas Priest should be in there already. But obviously I want Green Day in there, and the sooner the better. Because to see 'my band' in there would be amazing.

Yeah. I remember being really confused when I heard Madonna got in. I get that she's a good performer and singer, but she's not rock and roll. Having her in there next to all those classic rock bands is just weird. Yeah, like she is but KISS isn't. And I don't think it should be an annual thing either, because yeah soon bands like Nickelback will be in it or something. When I think of the R&R Hall of Fame, I don't think of bands like that.

I hate this article, I'm getting constant emails about it. Green Day is not "set" to get any sort of nod. All this says is that if the rule is relaxes, bands like Green Day, which have been around 20+ years (as opposed to the 25 it required before) COULD POTENTIALLY be nominated. No one is even saying that they are being considered, they just used their name as an example.

The whole point of a hall of fame is that it's the best of the best, not just any band who is known and/or successful. Think about it, the Who, Aersosmith, Metallica, AC/DC, etc, some of the best rock or rock-related bands to ever exist. I'm not saying Green Day doesn't deserve to be in there, but I think it's ridiculous to nominate people just for the sake of having nominees. Which is what I think they're doing, and what their rationale for changing the rule is. Seriously, what are they going to do in 10-20 years when it's time to nominate great new acts from the 21st century. They'll either be shit out of luck, or crappier and crappier bands will get thrown in, because there really isn't very much good rock music being made by new bands. The vast majority of it is coming from bands who have been around for at least a good 10 years, and usually a lot longer than that.
