N.W.A. says they’re rock and roll; Gene Simmons disagrees (again)

Posted by on April 11, 2016

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony took place this past Friday (8), and as per usual, it wasn’t without at least a bit of controversy. N.W.A. was among the inductees, and while the pioneering gangster rap collective wasn’t the first hip-hop group to be chosen for the Hall (they’re the fifth, actually), […]

Headbangers Brawl: Who should be inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame first – Iron Maiden, Judas Priest or Motörhead?

Posted by on April 8, 2016

Whatever your opinions are about the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, there’s one thing we can all agree on: it’s ridiculous that it’s taken so long for Deep Purple to get inducted.

Late last year, a new set of […]

Deep Purple finally make it into Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

Posted by on December 17, 2015

We keep stating that the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is a joke of an organization, and while we’re not about to change our stance on that, it was announced late last night that Deep Purple will finally be inducted into the Hall next year. Drummer Ian Paice said recently that the Hall of […]

Deep Purple, Nine Inch Nails, Yes, Cheap Trick among 2016 Rock Hall of Fame nominees

Posted by on October 8, 2015

Let’s start out by stating the obvious: the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is pretty much a sham of an organization. Everyone knows this. Countless bands should be nominated, but aren’t.

Green Day in, Nine Inch Nails not for Rock Hall of Fame

Posted by on December 16, 2014

You might find this hard to believe, but today the 2015 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees were announced, and there aren’t any heavy acts being inducted into it! Well, that’s not entirely true.

Posted by on April 10, 2014

Just a few hours ago, KISS were inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. The induction was well overdue (15 years after they were eligible, to be exact), and came amidst a lot of drama (and we mean a lot of drama). But despite all of that, Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley, Ace Frehley and […]
