    A post from another voter:

    I’m Giving Up My Rock Hall Vote
    My invitation to join the organization’s selection committee seemed like a sign of change. It wasn’t.

        Fan vote is something like less than a percent toward an artist's induction.

        The George Michael fanbase just mobilized better than the others. Guy could sing though.

          I don’t see why people think it’s important that some board of schmucks decides their favorite act gets acknowledged. Seems very anti-rock and roll to me. Rock and Roll is raiding the place like a band of pirates.

            George Michael performed one song with the remains of Queen, and did a halfway decent job of it. I wouldn't say that should get him into the Rock n Roll hall of fame, but it's certainly more than fucking Whitney Houston ever did.

              George made some decent background music for the 80’s clubs. I can still taste the Stroh’s.

                  It's the response to the "not enough women in the hall" complaints.

                    Well, I'm not at all impressed.

                      Who do they get to sing George Michael songs? Adam Lambert?

                        I'm not a huge fan of Iron Maiden, but they deserve to be inducted much more than most of these inductees.

                          Thankfully the organization has finally gotten woke, realized their past transgressions and nominated The Spinners...although justice won't be served until Needle Dig and the Bug Fuggers take their rightful place inside this hallowed ground.

                            Iron Maiden & Soundgarden can't get in the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame before Missy Fucking Elliot??

                            Even by rap standards, that's just pathetically weak. Can't even name one of her songs, let alone make any sort of case how she's "influenced" anybody, in the sense that Run DMC, NWA, or Public Enemy have.

                            Willie Nelson isn't rock n roll either, of course. But the guest list of his recent 90th birthday concerts is evidence of how many rock n rollers love the guy, so I'm fine with him being there.

                              That one Missy Elliott video was deemed "groundbreaking" and she might have gotten the MTV Video Vanguard award recently. Beyond that, I can't think of much she's done, either.
