I clicked this thread thinking for sure Julian was going to report Bieber's Lyme disease...

And then I was going to ask the question about Canadian Pop Stars and Lyme disease.

And then Sweetcell was provide some link to some bullshit Maple Rag about why Canadians have a higher propensity to get Lyme disease because they're so much nicer than everyone else....

i've had lyme disease, and i'm canadian.  i'm not a pop star, ergo, i'm a nice guy.

logic, bitches!

glad to hear Marc Bolan is finally getting into the RRHOF

not really sure Depech Mode is all that tho...
that video of 'just can't get enough' with the whole band playing keyboards blew my young mind at the time (now I know...kraftwork)
We did joke that it would be a great erectile dysfunction ad song before ED became a thing

all the other picks are deserving IMO

DM not ďall thatĒ? Okee dokee

I wonder if Vince Clarke would get in with them? He was only on first LP but I think he wrote most of it including Just Canít Get Enough but then went on to Yazoo and Erasure.

I think even if itís not your cup of tea DM where pretty crucial mainstreaming synth pop...

The Pet Shop Boys is the tough one for me...

That's kind of an insane take. They're highly influential, sold over 100 million records, had a style that merged multiple types of music in a way that continues to get copied 40 years later, had hits in three decades, and continue to sell out enormodomes in year 40 of their existence.

The RNR HoF is stupid for not having them in there already. [EDIT: The RNR HoF is dumb regardless.] (And I'm far from a DM fanboy.)

Amazingly stupid, in fact.

The only act Iíd potentially quibble about is Biggie. His first album is nothing short of amazing. I think the follow up is held in high regard primarily given the circumstances of its release. That doesnít seem worthy but I suppose is more than worthy for this BS.

Not all of the nominees seem like rock-n-roll performers.
