With the recent induction of rap music in the Rock n roll hof. That made me wonder...do musicians like Suicide, Silver Apples, Daft Punk, and Deadmou5 deserve to be there one day? And if people are debating if rap/hip hop is rock. Then what about Electronic music? Can it be classified as rock?

who cares

yep
Come back if you want to
And remember who you are
‘Cause there's nothing here for you my dear
And everything must pass

The rock and roll hof is stupid and always has been so having rap in it means nothing

Electronic music is only rock if it's mixed with rock. e.g. industrial rock is rock because it has rock in it.
I have nothing important to say

Does it matter?
Although, I guess that's technically your question.
No, it doesn't matter.
None of it matters.
There's nothing left here to be saved
Just barreling dogs and barking trains
Another year lost to the blue line

Singer Steve Miller was also inducted, but after he performed a medley of hits including The Joker with his band, he criticised the rock hall backstage, calling the ceremony a "lazy" night with "a bunch of fat cats".
"I don't know why I was nominated for this," the 72-year-old musician said in an interview. "I said this for 30 years - I don't get along with the people running it.

The singer even questioned the purpose of the rock hall adding: "You tell me what the hell is the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and what does it do besides talk about itself and sell postcards?"

Rock n Roll hall of fame has as much credibility as the WWE hall of Fame when inducting Snoop Dogg this year.

If rap can be considered "rock and roll" then anything can.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is a laughing stock.

Rnrhof is dumb, like every other awards ceremony or Hall of fame


+1. I hate those things. The Heisman Trophy, the Oscars, Grammys, you name it. All self congratulatory crap.

Calling them rock is an insult to EDM and rap tbh. Those genres are still alive.

That's why I quite like record classifications (e.g. gold, platinum) - they are quanitfiable, purely by sales. They don't pretend to determine the quality - they also are the truth behind these awards, who has made the most money.

Now gold, frankincense and myrrh records....that's a different story...
