The nominees for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 2012 induction class were announced today.
As usual, no legitimate superstars who should be nominated on the list (e.g., Steve Miller, Linda Ronstadt, Chicago, ELO, Rush, Moody Blues, Neil Sedaka), and a lot of disco, rap, and one-hit wonders (e.g., Beastie Boys) who should never be considered ARE on the list.
I'd comment on the way these nominations are making a mockery of the Hall of Fame, but these jokers aren't worth the caloric output. It almost makes me glad Miller, Ronstadt, et. al. are NOT nominated: it would cheapen their otherwise very successful careers.
