Rush Gets Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Snub – Again

Once again the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is doing a great disservice to the music world by snubbing one of the greatest rock bands in the world.  Canadian rock trio Rush is left off the Rock Hall nominee list to make way for lesser acts.

Rush is easily one of the most influential bands to come out of the 1970’s.   Musically they have such a signature and unique sound that you always know a Rush song when you hear it.  Their live show is nothing short of spectacular, plus they have the greatest drummer in the world in Neil Pert.  Now how are these guys not already in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, let alone snubbed again?

The list of Rock Hall nominees was released yesterday and Rushes name was no where to be found.  I do believe that at some point all the nominees deserve to in the Hall of Fame, but before Rush?  I think not.  I love the Red Hot Chili Peppers, but why do they get in before a band that paved the way?  Same goes for the Beastie Boys, Joan Jett and Guns N Roses.  All these bands came after Rush so how are they in before Rush?

The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame seems to do this all to often.  It took years to get Alice Cooper and Black Sabbath into the Hall despite their influence and lasting impact on the world.  Rush is now going through the same exact thing.  Perhaps the world needs to get a petition going to get Rush in, because the Hall doesn’t seem to have a clue.

Other snubs this year include KISS, Iron Maiden, Blue Oyster Cult, Judas Priest and so many more.  It’s really a shame.
