I don't really see the logic in reducing it from 25 to 20 years anyways. If they belong in the Hall of Fame, they should be relevant that extra few years to reach the current goal.

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'm a Madonna fan and even I go "WTF?!" when anyone tries to call her rock and roll. A lot of people lump any type of mainstream music together as rock and roll and that's something that's always bugged me a little. Madonna is most decidedly a pop star, pretty much the ultimate pop star. When I think of rock stars, I think of The Rolling Stones, The Who, The Ramones, The Clash, Led Zeppelin, not Madonna. KISS totally should have gotten in before she did.

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!"

How...? I really don't see how it says that in any way...

That's some awesome news. I know that Green Day would most likely end up in the rock and roll hall of fame at some point. I just can't wait until it happens.

This is fucking awesome. However, it really upset me to read this article as you can see by looking through the comments, that peoples music tastes now revolve around old overrated classic rock and new thrash deth metal.

I still like those types of music. But when a guy says, "Green Day? Iron Maiden is one of the most influential bands of all time", I say, "But Green Day has absolutely nothing to do with them and Iron Maiden isnt that epic of a band, I like em, but sorta overrated."

Aaaaaaaaaaaand wrong. But even if you consider them shit, they're all much more important players in the genre of rock and roll than Madonna.

Exactly no matter how much you may hate the bands you cant deny the influence they had on music. Come on i love Metallica and i agree that they should be in there but there would be no Metallica without Iron maiden Judas priest etc. which is why i call the rock n roll hall of fame a joke

can we just make one thing noted:
lowering the 25 years to 20 years isn't to speed anything up, but to make it so between the years 2013-2020 there wont be like 15 huge acts each year, as many groups formed and released their first albums in the late 80s and early 90s. it's to make it so those bands will be split up between 2011 and on. somewhat like an IV effect,

You know the word "may" is in the title, right? I know it's easy to see "green," "day," "rock," "roll," "hall," "fame" and "nod" and get excited, but there is nothing indicating that they're getting the nod, except for the fact that with the new rules, it would be possible now, as opposed to in 4 years. That doesn't mean they've been nominated.

I could wait five more years, I don't think it's necessary to change the rules ...
of course it would be super awesome if Green Day was in the R'n'R Hall of Fame but since Madonna got into it I don't take it serious anyway. that was just ridiculous!

They'll still be deserving in 5 years, so I wouldn't mind waiting. It's just awesome that they were even thrown in the article, saying that they may get considered.

I don't think changing the 25 years makes all that much of a difference though, they should just keep it at 25.
