  2. Rush gets dodged again… what the eff. And effin war? come on. they had like 2 hit songs. Apparently the people picking the candidates just watch Cheech and Chong’s Up In Smoke and said “lets nominate them”

  3. The fact that Neil Diamond has not been inducted long ago is an outright crime. When you got Gene Pitney in their over Neil Diamond there is majorly something wrong. The hall needs to work on putting some credibility back into their choices. It’s simply a joke. I don’t know why I am even wasting my energy writing about it because the people voting are pathetic in a good majority of their choices.
