Because it's really expensive to change the name. It was created in the early 80s, they didn't foresee Hip Hop being a thing. Besides, your name is more problematic. For instance, you'd have to have Beethoven in the Music HOF. It's Jan Levine's vanity project, when Hip-Hop became popular he started including Hip-Hop because he's nothing but a fame whore.
Fair enough.

I'm on a surprisingly number of DMB groups on Facebook and they are all complaining and it's pretty hilarious. It's like nobody actually understands the rules and just made a bunch of assumptions. Then when those assumptions don't hold it's not their fault but the R&R HOF fault not doing what they wanted.

But I think it’s fair to criticize why the fan vote exists if the top two voted acts aren’t inducted. What purpose does it serve? Maybe it’s to let the voting committee know to nominate those acts again in the future?

I agree it’s pretty dumb to have a fan vote, which is heavily promoted by the HOF and the individual nominees, where it just doesn’t impact the final decision that much. Even though they spell that out somewhat, it’s still kind stupid and a waste of time.

It serves nothing but to get the fans involved and for the nominees to have some free press. People read way to much into the voting to have any meaning outside of the top 5 fan vote getters receive 1/1000 votes on the committee. This could all be a closed door affair like the Oscars, SAGs, and Grammy's if they wanted to.

At the end of the day your voted in by music industry people which could be record exes or members of other bands. For example Paul Shaffer is a well know person that has been on the committee for years.

You would have to think that he voted for them.

I couldn't care less about the RnR HOF. I suppose it'd be a nice honor for them but I couldn't tell you who is in and who is not in general. It's not something I've ever heard used as a barometer for discussing a band's quality.

I honestly could care less, just annoyed that it's fodder for those who like to trash DMB. The whole "fan vote" is nothing more than a marketing ploy and its works pretty well.

Wait, so they didn't get it?

Good. This band has been coasting for over a decade now.

They worked hard for what, 7 years? 93-00 Then grabbed the pop fans in 01 and never looked back.....to this day they squander what talent they have left.

Harsh. Yep.

It was pretty much unanimously agreed around here that they wouldn't get in this time around.

This type of thinking is so stupid on so many levels.

Man, that hurts to watch. I can't believe that's how they inform players up for a HOF nod. Make them sit through a 3 hour NFL Network morning show instead of calling them that morning and being like "sorry man, you didn't make the cut this year."

That's some bullshit.

DMB will get there. The list this year is actually pretty solid. Very glad to see T. Rex finally getting recognized.

Could anyone offer a short list of bands who “should’ve” been inducted but weren’t? Toss your opinions aside.

Top of my head:

Smiths, Jim Croce, and Warren Zevon.

Now that Tupac and Biggie are in, Outkast should be a no brainer.
