    If the singer never opened his mouth Rush would be great...

    From a singer that loves classic rock and really appreciates the wonderful music Rush created I would like to give you a huge AMEN! Should have gotten that fourth person...

    Well, with Rush's induction, that's one RRHOF injustice that has been righted, but there's no real legitimacy until bands like KISS, Motley Crue, Def Leppard, Cheap Trick, Iron Maiden, ect. get in.

    Although I'm not really a fan, I really think KISS should be inducted, based on their longevity, their fans, and the number of albums sold. I know alot of people hate Gene Simmons (and rightly so) and also think they're more of a marketing phenomenon then a rock band, but they really didn't sell out until their later years; after they'd already established the necessary credentials, IMO, to be inducted. Metallica was a sell out and they were inducted, so why hold it against KISS?

    Another band I feel even more strongly about, way more so then KISS (because I'm a huge fan) is Iron Maiden. There's really no excuse for them not being inducted. They've been around for nearly 40 years, sold untold millions of albums, and inspired other bands that have been inducted. For bands like AC/DC, Van Halen, Guns and Roses, Metallica to be inductees, but not Maiden is an absolute travesty.

    I disagree. I'm not basing my opinion as a fan of any of those bands, except Maiden and the Crüe, but rather some of the less deserving bands that have already been inducted. If they're going to let the likes of GnR, Metallica, etc in, then all of the bands I listed deserve entry.
    This is off the subject, but have you ever been to a Crüe concert? Believe it or not, they put on a decent show, but even better, there's more p_ssy at their concerts than just about any band playing today. But I digress.

    What is your RRHOF criteria?

    I find it hard to believe that the ladies at motley Crüe concerts are young enough for me.

    My criteria is which bands suck and which are awesome.

    You allowed to type pussy.
