Top Five Bands Snubbed by Rock and Roll Hall of Fame: Charles Manson, Anal Cunt, and More!
Much like phony-baloney award shows or boring-as-shit overpriced music festivals, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is -- generally speaking -- a big bunch of bullshit. Or as the Sex Pistols would say, "a piss stain."
Look, we're totally stoked that Kraftwerk, N.W.A., and Public Enemy might finally going down as official all-time greats. And we're ambivalent about the inclusion of Heart. But dammit, this isn't about who's on the list. We're pissed about the Hall of Fame snubbing some of the biggest names in the history of guitar, bass, and drums.
Check out Crossfade's list of rockers and rollers long overdue for induction to the top shelf of history.
5. Tiny Tim
Ukulele-playing freakshow Herbert Khaury (AKA Tiny Tim) should have been inducted into the Hall of Fame the first millisecond he became eligible for nomination. Dub T was like Devendra Banhart if he were actually weird and not just a hippie hipster who looks like Russel Brand. And Tiny Timmy's voice! Angelic. Feast your eyes upon the only truly psychedelic human being that ever walked the Earth.
4. Charles Manson
Look, bro. We're not saying Charles Manson should be nominated for the Decent Human Being Hall of Fame. Nothing is worse than a serial-killer apologist. But at the same time, you can't deny the simple the simple truth that tunes is tunes. And besides, would he really be the first scumbag, drug-addled cult leader, or murderer inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame?Next Page
