The Rock n Roll Hall of Shame and Disgrace

I recently discovered "That Metal Show" on VH1, classic rock n roll. Tonight's episode had Eddie Trunk wearing a fan made T shirt that said on it, "The Rock n Roll Hall of Shame and Disgrace". One has to ask, "Why?"

Obvious isn't it? Have you seen who the RnRHoF has inducted? Don't you think Rock n Rollers should get covered before other music categories?

You tell me. Iron Maiden? Or RunDMZ? Who should be in there first? I don't have a problem with Rap, but if it were the Rap Hall of Fame and they put Black Sabbath in before Public Enemy? No way! Right?

Well?

Apparently, it should be called the Popular Music Hall of Fame and I really don't understand or have a problem with a name change, and why they aren't called that. Because they are obviously for more than Rock n Roll. I appreciate the compliment of using "Rock n Roll" as an umbrella term for fun, party, great moving music. But, really?

Understand, I don't begrudge other genres and bands their recognition. It's just, well, let's get it straight, okay?

If you are the Moving Picture Awards, please don't give awards for music videos or advertisements. They have their own awards.

So why are so many rock, Hard Rock bands, the puritan elements one could say, not in the Hall of Fame?

Okay, then.

I just wanted to get that said....

I thought I should add this, the Rock Snubs web site. I haven't been able to find where Eddie got that T shirt from.

  2. Thanks for the comment. I have looked around and cannot find where he got that. But sometimes they wear shirts someone just made up a few of too. If I get a chance to ask him, I will. :)

  3. My husband and I saw that episode and want shirts like Eddie's too! Whoever made the tee should start a sideline business producing them and make them available on the internet.

  4. I hear you. I am trying to find out if someone made those for him personally or if they are available. Their web site leaves something to be desired contactwise but I did ask them. :)

  6. Uոdeniably believe that which you statеd. Your faѵorite
    justification appeared to be onn the internet the
    easiest thiոg to bee aware of. I say to you, I certаinly get annoyed while people thiոk about worries that they
    plainly don't know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top
    as well as defined out the whole thing without Һaving side effеct , рeople could take a
    signal. Will likelу be back to get more. Thanks
