The 20 Worst Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Snubs
Last night, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame announced its 2014 nominees, which include Nirvana, The Replacements, Peter Gabriel, N.W.A., Chic, Cat Stevens, KISS, Hall and Oates, The Zombies, Deep Purple, The Meters, Yes, Linda Ronstadt, Paul Butterfield Blues Band, and Link Wray. It might be their most impressive list to date, which explains why the Internet’s been aflutter all morning. Still, we couldn’t help but think of 20 other names that remain snubbed of a nomination, and so we put together a list, accompanied with rankings and our semi-formal arguments. Enjoy and let us know who else you’d like to see.
Bjork, Black Flag, Depeche Mode, Devo, Iron Maiden, Journey, Joy Division, Kate Bush, Motorhead, New Order, Nick Cave, Nick Drake, Phish, Pixies, Roxy Music, Slayer, Sonic Youth, Television, The Smiths, Whitney Houston
