They deserve to be inducted more than anyone in my opinion but, I can just see the wank and bullshit that will be thrown at them though should they get nominated and inducted as they always seem to get  :S

Johnny Rotten said : "So there we are fending off all that and it pisses me off that years later a wank outfit like Green Day hop in and nick all that and attach it to themselves. They didn't earn their wings to do that and if they were true punk they wouldn't look anything like they do."

and Billie answered : "Sometimes I think we've become totally redundant because we're this big band now, we've made a lot of money – we're not punk rock any more. But then I think about it and just say, 'You can take us out of a punk rock environment, but you can't take the punk rock out of us.'"

Green Day always had its haters as other bands but i think they will go forward no matter what will happen...

I really hope they get the recognition they deserve, what an amazing day that will be for Green Day fans. So far we've seen Billie Joe personally induct the Stooges and Guns N Roses, and perform the Ramones covers before that...and to see them being celebrated the same way they celebrated those bands would be a great event, I think.

Don't we already have this thread somewhere?

There is a thread with speculation about it but since this one has a site where you can vote on whether you think they will or not in the OP I decided to leave it. The other one is like 3 years old as well.

Well, I can definitely see Dream Theater, Lenny Kravitz, Garth Brooks, Tom Petty, Manic Street Preachers, and NIN getting in.

 

I'd love to see Jawbreaker, Babes in Toyland and Porcupine Tree get in but that'll most likely never happen.

Yes because the 2015 induction ceremony will be in Cleveland again and I can actually go unlike when they were at the ceremony in 2012 and Alissa, Laura and I's attempts to see them/get a photo with them failed miserably and we drove for two hours for no fucking reason :)

I'll drive from Indianapolis for their induction

Well, first of all, I'm more interested to see if maybe Billie would be the one to induct The Replacements, which is the more current development. Seeing as he has a history of being invited to do inductions and performances at this event, and he is The Replacements biggest fan, as well as a friend of Paul Westerberg, I think if the artists have any say or suggestion for who should induct them, it would be likely that Paul and the Hall of Fame organization would invite Billie to do it this spring! So I'm looking forward to seeing that.  I'm also just very generally curious to see who will induct Nirvana. In a lot of ways, the individual(s) who induct a band are more interesting to me.

 

I definitely believe Green Day will be inducted at some point. Hard to say if they will in their first year, but I think they have a good shot. The organization seems to have a positive disposition toward them and unconcerned with all the "sell out" rhetoric that fans and enemies alike obsess over. I think the industry as a whole doesn't really view those points as valid when determining a band's influence.  Even if you think Green Day sold out, you couldn't deny their popularity and influence over successive pop punk generations, as well as enormous album sales and hit songs, as well as critical acclaim, and that's a bigger part of determining their induction than whether or not you think they have "integrity" (which they fucking do, since they write meaningful songs and record it themselves).

 

Also, the Hall of Fame is run by Jann Wenner, right? (The guy who runs Rolling Stone)  That company seems to have, if not a hard-on for Green Day, then at least a general positive attitude toward them. All those things would definitely help.

 

Of course, if Green Day whips out a hit album at some point next year (not trying to fuel any speculation or chance of that happening) it would seal the deal for a speedy induction process.

 

Plus, who votes on these things? Music journalists but also some musicians themselves, right?

Just because you think they deserve it doesn't mean someone else can't think they don't.

Seriously if GD wins I will be taking a road trip to Ohio in 2015!  Fingers crossed. 

 

My other choices are Tom Petty, NIN, Lenny Kravitz.  Garth Brookes, Queen Latifa, Sarah Machlin??  Not so much.

I guess so. Getting into the Hall shouldn't really be that big of a deal or something to actually worry about, but I think it'd be a cool experience for them in a way.

I'd seriously love to see that too, but the Replacements aren't among the 2014 inductees as far as I know.

Well then the first post in this thread is very misleading.  I thought the 2015 inductees were announced and those were the groups getting in.  I will research myself.

 

ETA: Yep, you're right, no Replacements :(  But I just learned it's taking place at the Barclays Center and I wonder how much tickets will cost...

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame: Green Day a no-brainer for 2015?

 

This week, we're taking a look at the artists eligible for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's Class of 2015. Examining the list, there appears to be just one no-brainer, and that's Green Day. But should the debate be that simple?

I'm not sure about that article. I disagree with the assertion that there's an "ever growing list of snubs." Not everyone gets in the second they're eligible; how long did it take Rush to get in? I really don't think Green Day would get in on the back of the Trilogy, regardless of what's happened before. I can see it happening in a few years, but certainly not yet.

I disagree whole-heartedly.  The Hall of Fame obviously loves them considering they have been a part of multiple events for them.  They will be first-ballot and I would bet my life on it.

I'm hoping for 2015 so I can be there to watch it.  Cleveland is only 2 hours from my house. :happy:

 

Plus, it'd definitely make up for Mar, Alissa and I's failed 2012 trip.

Flea and Anthony has performed and been apart of more events there than Green Day has and RHCP didn't get in the first time

I wouldn't trust a site that says Garth "bigger than The Beatles" Brooks is a long shot...

As much as I love green day there's so many other bands that should get in before them. Just because they've hit the 25 year acceptance doesn't mean they should get in straight away. I mean rush, iron maiden or Judas priest aren't even in it yet?? I don't particularly like those bands but I respect them for what they've done and how long they've lasted.

I think you're under-estimating the impact they've had. Dookie was all over the place in the 90's, they pushed punk to the mainstream and gave way for blink-182 and a lot of other bands. Then they managed to rival that albums success 10 years later and essentially bring in a whole new fan base. No to say those bands don't deserve to be in, but the HOF would be moron's to not induct em right away.

 

And as far as the Chili Peppers, they aren't anywhere near Green Day's status. Sure they've been around about as long, but they were never as popular or nearly as influential.

They've been around for a really long time now but people fail to take notice because their music has evolved with time and well, they don't look that old. Cmon, Green Day definitely has more influence than all the artists there. People might know Tom Petty, Nine Inch Nails, Dream Theatre and Lenny but Green Day are wayy more popular than them. We wouldn't have Blink 182, MCR, All Time Low, Fall Out Boy, NFG or any of these pop punk bands without Green Day. In some strange way or the other, they attracted the aufience to the might of The Ramones and The Clash. Dookie and AI are amoung the top rock albums of all time. Every band has haters but they don't decide the induction process.

So you are saying Green Day is more influental than Dream Theatre and NIN? I mean, I don't like any of those bands you mentioned but really?

Folks here will say Green Day are bigger than Garth Brooks or The Beatles etc

To say RHCP aren't as big as Green Day or influential is just wrong and so incorrect...
