The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Snubbed Radiohead... But Why?

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Snubbed Radiohead... But Why?”

Simone, the legendary chanteuse of "My Baby Just Cares For Me" fame, will be honored posthumously, as will Sister Rosetta Tharpe, a gospel artist in the 1930s and '40s who will be given an Early Influence award. Asked about this, Bon Jovi replied: "I feel like everybody who was nominated should get in".

The inductees for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 2018 are here!

One thing you can say about the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is that it knows its audience. Bon Jovi was not "Livin' on a Prayer", their induction was a fait accompli: The Jersey band led the way with fans, with more than a million votes, followed by the Moody Blues, Dire Straits, and the Cars.

This year's inductees to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame have been announced, and they have finally gotten around to adding Sister Rosetta Tharpe, who's got a pretty good claim to having invented that shit.

"It's a Christmas miracle", David Bryan, who plays keyboard for Bon Jovi, admitted. Among the more controversial choices, at least for a vocal group of dissenters, have been disco queen Donna Summer - now the subject of a musical at the La Jolla Playhouse - in 2013, gangsta rap group N.W.A.in 2016 and folk legend Joan Baez and deceased hip-hop star Tupac Shakur in 2017.

The six inductees were chosen from a group of 19 nominees, including Radiohead, who were expected to enter in the Rock Hall in their first year of eligibility, but didn't make it.

Chiefs lose fourth straight, falling 38-31 to New York Jets

Well, we've been through it twice already, Cars drummer Greg Robinson tells Rolling Stone.

Bon Jovi, led by Jon Bon Jovi, formed in 1983 in New Jersey and remains one of the biggest acts in the US music industry, releasing albums every couple of years. HBO will broadcast the ceremony.

DEEP PURPLE was eligible for the Rock Hall since 1993 but didn't get inducted until a year ago.

Also nominated this year but not inducted were Kate Bush, Rage Against the Machine, Depeche Mode, Eurythmics, MC5, LL Cool J, Judas Priest, the Zombies, the Meters, Link Wray, Rufus with Chaka Khan, and the J. Geils Band.

The band is the single most important and influential rock act to come out in the last 25 years.
