Twisted Sister, to me, is kind of a vastly underrated band.  Everyone says "Oh, sure, "We're Not Gonna Take It' is a good song, but that's all."  Not at all.  For reasons I'm not sure of, they're popularity seemed to wane and people got tired of em.  But now they've kinda re-energized enthusiasm with a fanbase, albeit with a Christmas cd of sorts.  But, I'm glad to see them re-emerge.

And, just curious, who nominated Alvin and The Chipmunks?  I like them and all (26 and have a few cd's), but nomination for a Hall of Fame? Really?

The Beach Boys join the Hall of Fame. Catchy good-natured tunes that can most easily be associated with fun in the sun and good times. Their music is also highly influential on numerous other bands IMO.

Kid Rock joins the Hall of Shame. Personally I do think he can be a good showman but his music doesn't strike me as being particularly memorable and certainly isn't what I personally consider Hall of Fame material.
I really kinda like Kid Rock.  A lot of people dont, because they don't like that he "apes" whatever is popular at the moment, going from rap, to rap/rock, to country, etc.  I think he's a bit talented, but can understand where people are coming from.

Sublime joins the Hall of Shame. This reggae fusion band were quite popular in the 1990s. They incorporated elements of ska, punk, reggae, dancehall, hip-hop and even acoustic rock. Along with bands like Green Day, Offspring and Rancid, helped revive interest in a more modern version of punk although they're more ska punk really. I thought they were alright myself but well, they never struck me as being all that memorable honestly. Updated Halls Page 4.

The Dave Matthews Band were quickly put to Shame. Guess I wasn't alone in my dislike for them although I understand they've actually done quite well for themselves with today's audiences.

They've built a sizeable audience.  Seen them in early July, and fans were there, 40,000 strong.  I like em, as they sort of fuse a little bit of jazz, rock, hip hop, etc.  To each their own.

"Weird" Al Yankovic joins the Hall of Fame. I've always liked Weird Al. I remember me and my cousin playing his songs on cassette when we were kids/teenagers and cracking up to "Eat It", "Like a Surgeon", "Addicted to Spuds", "Amish Paradise" and numerous other parodies. He's hilarious! And his songs are still fun and surprisingly catchy. I understand he's done some quality original material too and of course to us B-movie fans, we'll always have UHF too.

Al's got some quality, quality non-parody, yet very funny songs.  One such song would be the recently released CNR, a song in the style of the "Chuck Norris Facts", yet about Charles Nelson Reilly and all the amazing feats he could accomplish. Smile

Daft Punk joins the Music Hall of Shame. This French electronic music duo is definitely unusual and somewhat unique what with their popular dance recordings and their robot alter egos during performances. They've also appeared in genre films like the animated film Interstella 5555: The 5tory of the 5ecret 5tar 5ystem and will appear in Tron: Legacy and they've had their music used in other films including The Saint, they're playable characters in the game DJ Hero and they've had their music sampled by other performers including Janet Jackson, Busta Rhymes and Kanye West. I don't terribly dislike this band, here they were just up against too good competition. Updated Halls on Page 4.

I didn't hate them at all.  I liked them.  But some of the other bands listed I liked more.

I've heard the name but I know absolutely nothing about them, never voted either for or against them.  But I do think it's hard for me to consider anyone Hall of Fame worthy if I've never knowingly heard their music!

I'm sure you know a few songs.  They're a French "House" duo, one of them electronic influenced dance groups that get played at a lot of clubs and raves.  I'd say their most widely known song is this, from around 2000/2001:
"One More Time"
Small | Large

A few other songs were in some commercials and tv shows.

Blue Rodeo joins the Music Hall of Fame. I've been listening to Blue Rodeo since I was a kid and I don't remember ever hearing a song by them I thought was bad. Blue Rodeo is a Canadian country and pop band first formed in 1984 and they're still going strong to this day.

The Dead Milkmen, a satirical punk rock band from the 1980s-1990s who reunited in 2008 join the Hall of Fame. In all honesty, I haven't heard too much by them...

I guess their 'biggest' claim to fame is the song "Punk Rock Girl", which was a relatively minor hit back in the mid '80s.  It got played on Beavis and Butt-head in the '90s and was unmercilessly mocked.  In recent times, it's been featured in some Tony Hawk games, which features a prevelence on punk music.  They had some other 'minor hits' with the songs "Taking Retards to The Zoo", "b***hin Camaro" and "If You Love Someone Set Them on Fire."  Around '87, baseball player Jim Walewander of the Detroit Tigers became a vocal fan of the band, which was featured on his baseball card.  He even invited them to a game, and the band had a brief conversation with the team's manager.  Oddly, it was this game where he hit his only major league home run.

But, the band is from my hometown, so to speak, Philadelphia, so I guess I'd say I'm a big fan of theirs, they play a bunch of shows around. Buggedout

Happy and I both liked them and no one else felt strongly about them one way or the other.  I was glad for the opportunity to bond with Happy over this cult-ish band.  Smile
