I am sure this has been brought up before, but looking at the list of current nominees and also current members of this Hall of Fame, I think it should be renamed to Music Hall of Fame or something. Because nothing says Rock and Roll more than "I'm gonna knock you out" and "Straight outta Compton". I like both LL Cool J and N.W.A especially Dr Dre and Ice Cube, but Rock and Roll they are not.

The Paul Butterfield Blues Band I remember, but I had to google Link Wray, and I've never heard of him. Same with the Meters.

The winners should be

Deep Purple, Linda Ronstadt (she left her first Grammy in a cab)and Yes

But file it under never happen

My predictions is
Nirvana and Kiss will make it the rest should not be up for RR Hall but for some other form (or not at all).

The Meters Played with Dr. John on "Right Place Wrong Time" This is history people. Someone other than Happy (and myself) must have heard of them.

Ever hear of any of these guys and gals?

When hip hop and rap emerged it created a need for sampling. The Meters' music has been sampled by musicians around the world, including rap artists Heavy D, LL Cool J and Queen Latifah, Musiq, Big Daddy Kane, Run DMC, N.W.A, Ice Cube, Cypress Hill, EPMD, Public Enemy, A Tribe Called Quest, The Beastie Boys, Naughty by Nature, and Tweet. The Red Hot Chili Peppers covered the Meters' song "Africa" on their 1985 album Freaky Styley, and bands such as the Grateful Dead, KVHW, Steve Kimock Band, Widespread Panic, Rebirth Brass Band, Galactic, The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Jaco Pastorius and The String Cheese Incident perform songs by The Meters in their concert rotations.
The Meters' songs have also graced such movies as Two Can Play That Game, Jackie Brown, Drum Line, 8 Mile, Hancock, and Red.

The only reason i know anything at all about Dr. John is because Van Morrison makes numerous references to him in song.

Because no one in hip hop actually knows how to play a musical instrument.
