          Definitely ELO and Steppenwolf. I also went for The Cars, Journey and J. Geils. It's too late now but I should have picked Yes over J. Geils.

              Good to see support for The Cars. They should have made it last year.

                  Chaka, Zombies,Steppenwolf, and Yes are the nominees I'm interested in with Yes being #1 due to the (imo) massive contribution of all members (at least of the classic lineup) to the whole product rather than one or two members steering the art.

                  Dunno why, but I figured the Zombies were already in.

                    Hmmmm. I go a lot by how much they have influenced music, so if we are taking a rather loose view of rock as they are but going who has been particularly influential, I suppose I might choose:

                    Bad Brains
                    ELO
                    Chic
                    Kraftwerk
                    MC5
                    Steppenwolf
                    Cars

                    Maybe throw Yes in there, but the first seven are what leapt to mind initially.

                      Who are you going to vote for?


                      https://vote.rockhall.com/
                      I'm only voting for the ones who don't deserve it.
                      It's tough decision I know. But I endorse it.
                      The only alternative for me is to write in Jan Wenner's name 19 times.

                      I also recommend a purge going back. Delete Elvis - insert Jan Wenner.
                      Carl Perkins? nope - Jan Wenner. Jerry lee Lewis? Joni Mitchell? delete
                      insert Jan Wenner every time. I heard Steely Dan got in somehow? That's a 2'fer.Delete insert Jan Wenner.

                      After he's the only winner in that bunch. (Sorry he's a Wenner). Close enough anyway. It will take a year or two. But we can get it right eventually. THE ROCK AND ROLLL HALL OF FAME FEATURING JAN WENNER.

                      After the purge, we can have a conversation about which direction we can take THE ROCK HALL OF FAME FEATURING JAN WENNER should go.

                      Rock is losing listeners and buyers. We don't want Jan Wenner to be tied to a sinking ship. The whole point of this is how utterly important Jan Wenner is to every living creature on earth. Let's not lose sight of that.

                        Did you mean Jann Wenner of Rolling Stone magazine? Can't get him elected if you don't spell his name correctly.

                          I apologize for not including that second 'n'. Happy to see his rag lost in court today though.

                          7 million? that's nothing for a media giant such as Jann Wenner

                          There's likely more coming too for Jann Wenner.
