    Yup. N.W.A. and LL Cool J.

    World renowned rock and roll artists.

    Sounds about right.

    Chic deserves better than that! SMDH!! By the way....seems the term 'Rock & Roll' doesn't mean anything. Anyone who made a mark in music history should be considered!

    I bet by the time I'm an old man, Eminem and Little Wayne will be inducted too.

    RUSH only just got in last year and Peter Gabriel and Yes are still not in there? I seem to recall Genesis was only inducted recently as well. The RRHOF should be ashamed.

    I'm with Eddie Trunk, the R&R Hall of Fame is a sham. I have no desire to go there.

    I was a huge Nirvana fan in the 90s and still love In Utero (better than Nevermind, IMO as it was more original sounding). But they do not deserve to be on any hall of fame.

    They just never got a chance to prove themselves with just 3 albums (the first of which was nothing special). Who knows what they could have achieved? But as it is, you cannot compare their body of work to say, Hall & Oates - and I'm not even a fan of H & O but those guys had hits from the 70s to the 90s and were talented musicians.

    But we know Nirvana will get in.
