>The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's Class of 2018 has been announced and the eligible alternative rock acts were almost entirely shut out. In their first year of eligibility, Radiohead and Rage Against the Machine, both of whom were considered to be among the favorites for induction, did not get in. Neither did Kate Bush. Eurythmics or Depeche Mode.

>In terms of alternative-minded artists, only the Cars, who mixed new wave with rock and pop to great effect in the late '70s and early '80s made the cut.

>Instead, the Hall also chose Bon Jovi – who won the fan vote – the Moody Blues, Dire Straits and Nina Simone.



Congrats to Bon Jovi for being inducted. They deserved it.


Well, I don't care for Bon Jovi, but I like the other choices.


I am not sure that Rage Against the Machine deserves to be in the rock hall of fame. They had one solid album and an ok followup. The third album sucked and the 4th was a covers album. This does not signify a long and glorious career in rock music.

Depeche Mode is another strange choice. While they have had a long and storied career, do they really fit in a museum with bands like Aerosmith and Bon Jovi?



There are rap artists in the R&R Hall Of Fame, so they will fit in just fine.


I see your point for RATM, but, even if they don't fit the rock archetype very well, I think depeche mode are generally more classic than either aerosmith or bon jovi


I didnt realize that the hall of fame included non-rock artists. Ok then, Depeche Mode definitely deserves induction.

Yeah, I stand by RATM not being inducted. They were probably put on the list because of general political turbulence. In the grand scheme of things, they werent even active for that long. Might as well put Limp Bizkit in the hall of fame.

I didnt realize that the hall of fame accepts non-rock artists. That being the case, I would absolutely argue for the induction of Depeche Mode. I would say that their big songs are as classic as any band in the hall of fame.


Of course they throw a hissy fit as soon an artist critiques our lord and savior's THE ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME
