Well here we go again.
Another year where we here at Your Tuesday Afternoon Alternative challenge the music industry to include artists that deserve to be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame that consistently go ignored. Several artists have not received a single nomination — The Replacements, Richard Thompson (with or without Fairport Convention), Depeche Mode, Billy Bragg, KISS, Rush, and The Pogues to name but a select few!
Yeah we have the Cure among the nominees, but we would bet you a good indie rock CD that they do not get into the Hall.
In short, any Hall that does not have The Replacements is not worthy to call itself a Rock and Roll anything!
