    Face it: it's just pop. The rock acts that make it into there are mostly popular acts, who got airplay on mainstream popular music stations. The term "rock and roll" is meaningless, as it pertains to these awards. Rap, jazz, folk, hip-hop, electronica, blues, and country have all gotten in, if they're popular.

    I like Janet Jackson's music, but I think her last name did her some favors here.

    I don't really have issues with this list at all.

    Generally, this list isn't too bad. Roxy and Radiohead could both wait a little longer to make it in though.
    Even so - still dead to me.

    Iron Maiden, Blue Oyster Cult, Judas Priest, Motorhead, Ronnie James Dio, The Scorpions, Thin Lizzy, Jethro Tull, and Bad Co should all have gotten in a long time ago.

    Everything that can trace its origin back to Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley and Little Richard is rock and roll.

    Unfortunately, true.

    Even candy-assed pop music can be considered rock.

    So is the ceremony taking place soon, and then broadcast later?

    Oh, and BTW, Suzanna Hoffs (hubba hubba).

    I was going to try to make fun of you for hubbaing a 60 year old woman, but I looked for some recent photos of her and decided against it.

    Are 60 year olds really getting hotter or is this just a side effecto of me getting older?

    Probably both.

    She's held up pretty well. But also, when a guy has a daughter the same age as Ariana Grande, his preferences should mature as well.

    March 29. It looks like it could be on HBO. And if so, since I have HBO Now I will eventually get to see it.

    HBO usually shows it.
    The concert part is fun, and the induction part isn't too bad since it isn't all drawn out like an awards show.
