On October 28 I highlighted my favorite 2015 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame nominees which included Green Day, Joan Jett and the Black Hearts, Nine Inch Nails, Lou Reed, N.W.A., Bill Withers, The Smiths, Sting and Stevie Ray Vaughan.
As of today we have the official inductees:
The “5” Royales
The Paul Butterfield Blues Band
Joan Jett & the Blackhearts
Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble
While I’m thrilled to finally see Joan Jett on the list after years of being left off, as a metal fan it’s frustrating that the following three bands didn’t make the cut:
304 – Total number of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductees
726 – Total number of people inducted into Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
108 – Total number of groups inducted into Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
29 – Total number of Induction Ceremonies
See ya in April for the ceremony!
