Whitney Houston makes the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame!....uh....WTF?

https://www.yahoo.com/entertainment/...143443193.html



This year’s six inductees for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame were announced Wednesday morning, and they are Whitney Houston, Depeche Mode, the Notorious B.I.G., Nine Inch Nails, the Doobie Brothers, and T. Rex.
Notably absent from the Class of 2020, however, was Pat Benatar.

The fact that Benatar — one of the most successful female artists of the 1980s, who undoubtedly set the template for female hard rock singers at a time when few female hard rock singers had a presence on the charts or at rock radio — had never been nominated before had been a subject of annual Hall protest. She was widely predicted to be a lock this year, especially considering that last year’s inductee, Janet Jackson, had implored in her Rock Hall acceptance speech to thunderous applause: “Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, please, 2020: Induct more women!” (Only three female artists total were on this year’s Hall ballot, the other two being Houston and passed-over four-time nominee Rufus featuring Chaka Khan. Women make up less than 8 percent of all Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Inductees.)

Benatar actually came in second in this year’s online Fan Vote. Also not making the Class of 2020 cut were the Dave Matthews Band, who actually topped the Fan Vote by a wide margin. (It is noteworthy that the seven previous winners of the Fan Vote had all been inducted in their years).
Along with Benatar, hard/classic rock in general was passed over, with nominees Motörhead, Thin Lizzy, Todd Rundgren, the MC5, and two other artists that made the top five of the Fan Vote, Judas Priest and Soundgarden, all not getting in.

It was also interesting that six-time nominees Kraftwerk were passed over in favor of their logical successors Depeche Mode and Nine Inch Nails, since it could easily be argued that all electronic music can be traced back in some way to the German techno pioneers.

Motown influenced rock music, so I can see that. Did you ever listen to the basslines of John Paul Jones or Paul McCartney? Lots of Motown there. Same with blues. Whitney Houston did not influence rock music.

Did you know the Eagles started out as her backing band? And her early music was rock?

Maybe I'm too young to know her rockin' past.
When I think of her I think:
  • Blue Bayou
  • Don't know much, (w/ Arron Neville)
  • No bra

Van Halen covered her song "You're No Good".

I was just listening to Alan Hunter on XM Radio and he said fan voting, Pat Benatar was 2nd and Judas Priest was 5th. So we end up with Whitney Houston and some guy I never heard of, BIG. I know he must be a rapper, they give themselves fake names. That is the Bull Shit Hall of Fame. I guess I'm late to the party, you see how much I pay attention to this crap. The last Grammy Awards I watched was in '89 when Metallica gave Jethro Tull 'Best Heavy Metal Band' award.
