Re: “The Artists Still Waiting for Their Deserved Rock Hall Nods

Blue Oyster Cult is greatly underrated as a ground breaking band. Most know their over played radio anthems (Godzilla, The Reaper, Burnin for You) but if you delve deaper into their music you begin to understand the beauty of Blue Oyster Cult.

Re: “The Artists Still Waiting for Their Deserved Rock Hall Nods

Some very good acknowledgements Scene, but to me the biggest annual snub continues to be the failure to induct Bad Co. They were the quintessential rock band of the 70s', with arguably the greatest rock singer of all time and a whole string of rock pedigrees from their memberships in former bands (Free, Mott the Hoople and King Crimson). It seems incredible to me that ABBA is in the RRHOF and Bad Co. is not.

Re: “True Confessions from Rock Hall Employees

I wish they would realize that it's the Rock and Roll hall of fame, and not the Music Hall of Fame...

Re: “Todd Rundgren Thrives on Being ‘Unpredictable’

Rundgren is a prolific artist, though some of his tongue-n-cheek pokes at society and pop culture may (continue to) get lost in the mix. But the song "Hiroshima"- with Utopia - is as powerful a political statement that was recorded during the platinum era of arena rock.

Re: “The Artists Still Waiting for Their Deserved Rock Hall Nods

Welcome to Cleveland, rock stars. Here's how we trash our world famous museum that you all want to be in some day (even the ones who say they don't). We inaccurately report that Chic is already in and make a big article with a list of the ones who should "really" be in. Crappy job, Scene.
