Snubbed By The Rock ‘N Roll Hall of Fame… Again!

Lisa put together a blog post the other day on the 2012 nominees for Induction into the Rock ‘N Roll Hall of Fame. Including Guns N Roses, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, and Heart… BUT they are also nominating Laura Nyro. (???) This is GnR’s first year for eligibility, and that got me to thinking… “just how many real Rock N Roll artists are eligible, and getting snubbed?”

Here are a few that have been eligible before this year…

Boston, Rush, KISS, Jethro Tull, Motley Crue, Ozzy Osbourne (solo), Journey, Iron Maiden, Hall & Oates, and tragically New Kids on The Block, and Yanni… (Seriously, you know there are some people in the RnR Hall of Fame that are somewhat questionable, and others you know don’t belong there.) Here is an unofficial list of eligible artists and the years they became eligible HERE.

To be eligible for the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame, an act had to release a record at least 25 years before induction.  So, to be nominated in 2011, an act had to have released something in 1986 or before.
