Your "rock only" is irrelevant. lol The voters at Rolling Stone have spoken and they inducted who they wanted. razz These are the most recent covers of RS from the current issue going back to January 2018. How many feature a rock n' roll artist?



For 65 years straight, the #1 genre in music, selling wise, was rock n' roll worldwide. Last year (2017) in June, it got de-crowned by hip hop. Hip hop is the #1 genre. It's hip hop - rock - country - pop or pop - country. ~ Pras

What does Rolling Stones cover has to do with anything? Why are you against a museum that has only Rock and Roll in it? Yes Jimi. Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Heart, Joan Jett, Pat Benatar, Thin Lizzy would be in it (and even the Monkees too Mickey D? Are you against a Reggae, Hip Hop, Jazz, Counrty only museum?? I said I'm also for a Music Hall of Fame muesum as well. Rolling Stones Magazine has been irrelevant for the last 35 years or so.

It gives an idea of the people who's writing for RS & voting for the Hall Of Fame today and the audience who currently reads RS. Which would be the potential target audience for the HBO broadcast now that the boomer generation is getting old or passing away. So it isn't a surprise NWA, Tupac, & Biggie Smalls got inducted, they're past artists. There's an entire generation who has not existed when hip hop wasn't around. Some of the classic rock artists have worked with rappers like Paul McCartney, Eddie Van Halen, Jimmy Page, Mick Jagger, David Bowie, Phil Collins, etc.

OK but still no reason not to have a Rock and Roll museum. Are you for a Hip Hop only museum? Sorry but today's music sucks. Music from the 60's - 80's is better than 90's- 2020

There's already one of those. There's one for funk and even a polka music museum. The point is not that there shouldn't be a rock museum. But going by the magazine that started the Rock n Roll Hall Of Fame is rarely (if at all) using rock acts on their cover means that the general audience is not interested in it enough to buy the magazine. Usually magazines put celebs on the cover who are more likely to get as many people to buy it as possible. The fact that RS recently determined that Britney Spears has the greatest debut single of all time, should give an idea that the taste of the founders like Jann Wenner is on the way out. The millennial writers & performers and after are going to choose who goes in the Hall. They are going to start inducting their popular acts. Unless rock makes a comeback in the mainstream, fewer of those artists will get inducted. They've started inducting grunge. The next big rock craze after that was nu-metal which is rock & rap mixed together, Limp Bizkit might get in. Rock will probably eventually become like starting a museum right now about big band jazz or easy listening. The people who were around when those were popular are mostly gone now. Such a place would mainly appeal to a niche group

I wasn't the one who first said that a rock only museum had a more limited appeal. I only gave the reasons why it does. So how is that changing the subject? The subject is about who people think is the greatest American rock band, not about who should be in the Hall Of Fame. The poster who said that Grand Funk Railroad should be in before disco & hip hop changed the subject.

"Rock Band" is pretty subjective, but I would vote R.E.M. They seem to represent elements of a diverse nation.

I didn't forget Tom Petty, I consider him a solo artist, like I consider Joan Jett of the Blackhearts a solo artist and Jimi Hendrix a solo artist too, all of who would make my Greatest American Rock solo acts list
