So my brother, who is a carbon copy of me in the music department in a male body emailed the Rock HOF to express his displeasure in the fan results. His email entitled "You got it wrong, again" said "You have proven you don't listen to the fans. BS political correctness and appropriate diversity vs actual R&R wins again. Good luck getting people to visit." He is pretty angry! Their response was, IMO totally pathetic and laced with BS. They claim the top 5 fan vote getters form one ballot, which is weighted the same as the rest of the submitted ballots. If they don't get enough votes from the voting body, they have to nominated again to be eligible for induction. Sounds like a load of junk to me! 🤮

The results are in for the Rock Hall fan vote and the top five are in order- Dave Matthews band, Pat Benetar, Doobie brothers, Soundgarden, Judas Priest. Are you happy with the results? I for one only have two in there that I voted for. And FYI Dave Matthews band got over one million fan votes! The inductees will be announced January 15th so stay tuned.......

I was rooting for the Doobies (yea!), and I like Pat Benetar, too, but no Thin Lizzy Cat Sad .

The Rock HOF announced the official inductees for the Class of 2020 and I, for one am SHOCKED at the results. Here they are in no particular order-


The Doobie Brothers

Whitney Houston

Depeche Mode

T Rex

Nine Inch Nails

The Notorious BIG


I thought there were only five inductees, but apparently not. I am shocked that Pat Benetar did not get in and also Dave Matthews Band. How do you feel? Are you happy or sad with the results?

So the top five vote getters doesn't mean beans? I haven't been happy with Rock HoF for some time. Too many great classic rock bands have been snubbed, and by the time some are finally acknowledged, some members may have already passed. Sigh....


Glad to see the Doobies are in.

@MaVolta  I am very disallusioned at the fan vote. I don't understand how a group that gets over a million fan votes (Dave Matthews band) doesn't get in and why they chose some of the inductees over Pat Benetar. T Rex in but not Thin Lizzy? Don't agree. And Todd Rundgren still not in? Doubt that I'll even vote again. Also agreed they often wait too long- Classic example is the forever snub of the Moody Blues, by the time they got inducted in 2018, Ray Thomas had already died. Sad

@BeatleloverKT  - Agree. From what I've read, it's all about the $$$$$$, and record labels courting favors.
