    Default Three Coachella headliners on R&R Hall Of Fame nomination list.

    The Cure
    Beastie Boys
    Red Hot Chili Peppers
    Joan Jett
    Guns N Roses
    Eric B & Rakim
    Donovan
    Heart
    Freddie King
    War
    Donna Summer
    Small Faces
    The Spinners
    Rufus & Chaka Kahn
    Laura Nyro

    A bizarre list as usual. I'm not sure it's really worth discussing, but I did find the inclusion of The Cure somewhat heartening. They usually don't nominate outside the mainstream unless it's some kind of early blues artist, or clearly someone's pet project (like the continued inclusion of Laura Nyro).

    BTW...I've seen 4 artists on this list, see if you can guess the one I didn't see willingly.

    Come on Marc. We all know Chaka Kahn was the shit in the 80's. There is no reason to be embarrassed. Was it really that unwillingly?

    Donna Summer is the no-brainer on that list.

    I can't figure out the rnrHOF otherwise.

    Here are the criteria for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame:
    1) Did the act sell a LOT of records relative to their peers? If so, they're in.
    2) If not 1), does Jann Wenner, Jon Landau, or to a much lesser extent, Bruce Springsteen, really like the act? If so, they're in.
    3) If not 1) and 2), does the act have enough cultural cachet that even people in the suburbs and industry dinosaurs recognize the act by name? If so, the act is probably a definitive proto-punk, punk, metal, or hip-hop act, and they're in.
    4) Are you Miles Davis? If so, you are in.

    Joan Jett has been raising her cache and rewriting her history the last few years through film and interviews. I think she slips in on her effective campaign.

    Watching the HBO broadcast of this year's ceremony, which was held the Saturday night of Coachella. Man, this is even worse than usual. The ultimate tribute to MCA that absolutely no one wanted to hear: Kid Rock performing the Beastie's greatest hits.

    2013 nominees:

    The Paul Butterfield Blues Band
    Chic
    Deep Purple
    Heart
    Joan Jett and the Blackhearts
    Albert King
    Kraftwerk
    The Marvelettes
    The Meters
    Randy Newman
    N.W.A
    Procol Harum
    Public Enemy
    Rush
    Donna Summer

    Also, there is a "Fan vote" this year at Rolling Stone, but it will almost certainly have zero impact on the final vote.

    By the way, the Pixies and Jane's Addiction were both eligible this year, but apparently the '80s underground still doesn't exist in the world of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Even if we're talking about the bands that did the most to break alt rock to the mainstream.

    I'll be pretty disappointed if Public Enemy accepts the nomination, I look forward to an open letter from Chuck D.

    I'm sure somewhere Dr. Dre is in his secret laboratory readying the Eazy-E hologram.

    I don't listen to Rush, but they seem to be a good candidate for this. Influential and well-respected musicians.

    Yes, Tom, let's see it. I'm not one to think "influential" means somebody is great, but I think it applies to a Hall of Fame. I can't listen to Kraftwerk, but I acknowledge that they should be recognized due to influence alone.

    Shitty bands had influences. Rather than receiving accolades they should receive blame.

    I await the Tom speech on influential artists. Make it snappy though. I have to be at work soon.
