2018 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

Postby flamethrower » Mon Oct 30, 2017 6:34 pm

The election for that is now open til early December. Vote everyday. I do. You can vote 1 time a day. Why not do that.
I am voting for Dire Straits, The Moody Blues, J.Giles Band, Bon Jovi, and The Cars. If there was a 6th vote. I would also vote for Judas Priest. I like as many songs that both Judas Priest did as well as the Cars. But, the Cars also got nominated last year. Judas Priest didn't. That is the reason why I'm voting for the Cars over Judas Priest. Once again Emerson Lake and Palmer got passed over. Along with Scorpions, and Jethro Tull.
Bon Jovi has over 450,000 votes as of today
The Moody Blues has over 367,000 votes as of today
Dire Straits has over 261,000 votes as of today
The Cars has over 221,00 votes as of today
Judas Priest has over 189,000 votes as of today
J. Giles Band has over 142,000 votes as of today
The Eurythmics has over 186,000 votes as of today
The reason I started this thread here is that a certain poster who I have had a running argument with chose to blast it in smack area. So I chose to restart it here. Hoping it doesn't get derailed, like that one did.

Bon Jovi over any of the next four band is a crime.

Bon Jovi has over 1 million votes. I actually stopped voting for them 10 days ago. I started Voting for Judas Priest at that point. I see them, Moody Blues, Dire Straits, The Cars, Judas Priest, and maybe The Zombies making it this year.

The inductees are Bon Jovi, The Moody Blues, The Cars, Dire Straits, Nina Simone, and early influence Sister Rosa Tharpe. I got no problem with this. Because the top 4 that could be voted for got in.
Why ELP, ELO, Steppenwolf, Judas Priest, The Scorpions, Iron Maden, Jethro Tull, J. Giles Band, Blue Oyster Cult, and King Crimson are not in just boggles my mind.

JETHRO FREAKIN' TULL - My God

My God
Jethro Tull
People, what have you done
Locked Him in His golden cage
Golden cage
Made Him bend to your religion
Him resurrected from the grave
From the grave
He is the God of nothing
If that's all that you can see
You are the God of everything
He's inside you and me
So lean upon Him gently
And don't call on Him to save you
From your social graces
And the sins you used waive
You used to waive
The bloody Church of England
In chains of history
Requests your earthly presence at
The vicarage for tea
And the graven image you know
With His plastic crucifix
He's got him fixed
Confuses me as to who and where and why
As to how he gets his kicks
He gets his kicks
Confessing to the endless sin
The endless whining sounds
You'll be praying 'til next Thursday to
All the Gods that you can count

Scalp 'em, Swamp 'em,
