How in the HELL is Lynyrd Skynyrd NOT in the RNR hall of fame!!! I could write pages on why they deserve it... from Freebird being the second most requested song of all time to their mulitude of great songs... they deserve it!

You don't get it boy, this isn't a mudhole... it's an operating table. And I'm the surgeon.

Just out of curiosity, who is the governing body that decides who gets in?

And what is the #1 most requested song of all time?



Try not to get dunked on.
I wish I could work the random images thingy.

I'm not even a Skynyrd fan and I agree. It boggles my mind that Black Sabbath hasn't gotten in yet, either, considering the massive influence they've had on the music industry and Ozzy Osbourne's new status as America's Sweetheart.

Although, they did induct perhaps their finest crop ever in Elvis Costello, AC/DC, The Police and The Muthafuckin' Clash, so I'm not *that* compelled to bitch at them.

I've read many times that Stairway to Heaven is the most requested. The group this year is good too btw, but Skynyrd does need to be in.

If I remember right, Black Sabbath have been inducted but Ozzy refused the honor, saying that the people involved in the selection we're all suits and that their true fans were the only people that mattered.

Actually, they haven't been inducted. They've been on the ballot a couple times, but they never got voted in, so Ozzy just said "don't bother."

As for your question DJ FrostyFreeze, I believe the nominations are handled by music critics and their ilk.

By the way, there are so many reasons to bitch about the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame that my fingers would just fall off from so much typing long before I even get half way through the list that I'm not even going to get into it. I'll just say now that I agree with all your complaints and leave it at that for now.
