what is the criteria for rock and roll hall of fame? I mean radiohead is an obvious lock whether you like them or not.
I feel like dave grohl should already be in there if he's not already. Rage against the machine is great, but I feel like that was ''90s highschool in a car looking for a party" and don't remember much after that from them, but those tunes were FUCKING GREAT.
Queens of the stone age I feel like they should be getting close for having an uncompromising view of Rock and Roll and sticking too it.

Bon Jovi has a massive online following. Good for them.
Kate Bush should get in I think. Was listening to Hounds of Love album the other day - so good. I wouldn't grumble at Radiohead either. Dire Straits too. Not Bon Jovi please.....I have a friend who would like that but not me.
My favorites here are Moody Blues, Judas Priest and The Meters. It's pretty understandable why The Meters are dead last considering they are considered too much in the tradition of rock. I don't keep up with these but James Brown was inducted in 86 and P-F were inducted in 1997... maybe it's time for another funk giant to get in.
Bon Jovi can stay out as far as I'm concerned, semi-serious there. My Bloody Valentine and King Crimson are the ones I want in... but I'm not really saying anything new here.
Kate Bush should make it in for how consistently great her music has been all these years. Shes also been a great influence. Its such a shame that her career in the United States didnt really take off as much as it did in other parts of the world.
Green Day's resurgence with American Idiot pretty much sealed them as a first ballot entrance into the Hall of Fame. If the Smashing Pumpkins had done that they would've gone in instantly too, but they didn't. They are forever trapped in the 90s.
Self-titled came out in 1998, so they have 6 more years before they're eligible. Kyuss is eligible now and fucking deserves it just for Welcome to Sky Valley, but they'll never put Kyuss in because Kyuss had zero commercial success. QOTSA may get in in the next decade or so. Josh Homme and Dave Grohl are the living personification of rock and roll at this point, so they both deserve individual nods.
