This year's nominees for the Rock and Roll HOF:

Beastie Boys
The Cure
Eric B. & Rakim
Guns 'N Roses
Joan Jett and The Blackhearts
Freddie King
Laura Nyro
Red Hot Chili Peppers
Rufus with Chaka Khan
The Small Faces/The Faces
The Spinners
Donna Summer

The Small Faces/Faces leap out-- in either incarnation they should be in, and I am puzzled as to why they are lumped together like that. Ogden's Nut Gone Flake and A Nod Is As Good As A Wink...To A Blind Horse are pretty clearly the work of different bands, personnel overlap notwithstanding. The Spinners and Donna Summer belong in, as does Laura Nyro. Likewise Freddy King, but after that I think we are talking about artists that belong in the Hall of the Pretty Good.

UPDATE: Apparently this is the first year of eligibility for They Might Be Giants. The fact that they weren't even nominated is a travesty of world-historical proportions. (Well, maybe not that big a travesty, but still.)
