    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.
