ABBA’s in there…
Green Freaking Day is in there…why? For their politics that’s why.
Bon Jovi, Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, GnR, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Journey, KISS, Led Zeppelin, Metallica.
NWA…NWA is in there…as is Public Enemy and Tupac Shakur.
When it comes to Metal, is there no greater group of detached idiocy than the voting members of the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame? If you voted to have any of the rap artists in the HOF before Judas Priest then you are a completely detached fool that does not understand the Heavy Metal genre at all.
What’s the induction process? Per the RHOF website:
“Artists—a group encompassing performers, composers and/or musicians—become eligible for induction 25 years after the release of their first commercial recording. Besides demonstrating unquestionable musical excellence and talent, inductees will have had a significant impact on the development, evolution and preservation of rock & roll.”
Now, using that standard, how hasn’t Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, or Pantera been inducted. All 3 of those bands should have been first ballot entries on the year they were eligible to be inducted.
To any Metal fan it’s a nobrainer.
To the vast majority of the voting members of the RHOF it means nothing.
2Pac, Run DMC, Public Enemy all got in on their first year of eligibility.
And they have nothing to do with Rock/Metal.
That’s how disgraceful the whole process is for the RHOF.
As for the fan vote, it doesn’t mean much. It just means there’s one more vote added to the total of the votes of the voting members of the RHOF.
And as to the badly launched Hall Of Heavy Metal History thing, well, it doesn’t hurt to have competition. And if you look at it, it just seems to be another moneymaking venture disguised as a nonprofit by some industry insiders. As per their Facebook page:
“The Hall of Heavy Metal History is a non-profit organization, and was developed by a team of Iconic music industry executives to enshrine forever, those Iconic musicians and music industry executives who are responsible for making Heavy Metal music what it is today. Their contribution to the genre is invaluable, and they keep inspiring Heavy Metal fans throughout the world, from generation to generation.”
The fix is in. In the future, this will develop into yet another corporate owned politically correct business venture disguised as a nonprofit. Who will they shut out due to their politics? Or who will get in because of their SJW activism? Like Green Day did for the RHOF.
Metal Mofos are the rogues of Metal. We are the ones that are building the counterplatform to combat the industry, NOT to make a name for ourselves in it, but to ENSURE that the roots of Metal are respected, like the right to offend, free speech, and the willingness to say what all others will not.
Now, some may say, can you be both a rogue and a pro. I contend that yes, you most certainly can. Think of all the counterplatforms that have been created since the institutions in Western Civilization were taken over by social justice warriors. The most impactful are disciplined professionals that are the cultural counter-revolutionaries to a world gone Leftist.
Metal Mofos joined the fight against the Left in Metal 3 years ago, and now we begin the process of taking this thing to the next level.
With that, we introduce our own version of the Metal Hall Of Fame.
The Metal Mofos Hall Of Fame.
Presented by the professional rogues at Metal Mofos, which includes all the roguish fans of Metal Mofos.
