Rock Hall names nominees for '07 The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame released nine nominees for potential 2007 induction, which is always good for a spot of controversy. The names: Chic, the Dave Clark Five, Grandmaster (spelled "Grandmaser" in the release) Flash & the Furious Five, R.E.M., The Ronettes, Patti Smith, The Stooges, Joe Tex, and Van Halen.
I can see Grandmaster Flas, REM, Dave Clark Five and Patti Smith making it with ease. Van Halen SHOULD, but who knows. ROCK bands are not treated with much respect by the HOF.
I'm not a big fan of Radiohead except for a few songs off of OK Computer. However, this is an awesome move, and I downloaded the album in exchange for a $10 donation anyway. I have yet to listen to it, so I can't say if it's good or not.
