    Blondie was inducted several years ago, and yet Todd Rundgren has not been considered. Lets compare bodies of work and decide whose more deserving of recognition. Not that Todd gives a rats ass about it, but still.... Blondie ??? seriously ??? That skank Debra Harry wouldnt allow all the original members of the band that performed those couple hits of theirs to be inducted with her.

    Skank? Debbie Harry???

    My top five were:

    Rush
    Deep Purple
    Heart
    Albert King
    Joan Jett & the Blackhearts

    Take it or leave it.

    I didn't realize Albert King was a nominee. He should definitely get in too. He may actually be the most deserving, in my opinion anway.

    My 'no's included.........

    Joan Jett & The Heartbreakers. How many hits did they actually have? 2 that I can recall.
    Kraftwerk. 1 hit wonder! Really?
    Marveletes. How long were they around? I know they are Motown but HOF?
    N.W.A. Hell no! Isn't there a Hip Hop Hall Of Fame?

    Just my opinion.
