Rock Hall Announces 2010 Contenders

Critics of the Rock Hall Of Fame policy of enshrining artists with only marginal Rock credentials are sure to view the 2010 list of nominees as further evidence that Pop Hall Of Fame is a more appropriate name.  Genesis, KISS, the Stooges, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, the Hollies, the Chantels, and Darlene Love make sense.  Jimmy Cliff and Laura Nyro were both influential enough to pass muster.  But LL Cool J, ABBA and Donna Summer entering ahead of Rush, Todd Rundgren, Alice Cooper, Deep Purple, Jethro Tull, Heart, ELP, ELO, Cheap Trick, The Cars, Joe Cocker, The Doobie Brothers and numerous others is like putting Beavis & Butthead on Mt. Rushmore.
