Legendary Artists and Bands That Still Have Yet To Be Inducted Into The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.

Today, (12/17) saw the announcement of the music acts that will be inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. They are:

- Chicago

- Steve Miller

- Deep Purple

- Cheap Trick

- N.W.A.

The top 4, I agree with wholeheartedly, but N.W.A. is a rap act and does not warrant induction into an organization with the words “Rock And Roll” in it. They beat popular vote front-runners Yes and The Cars to make it this far. I do not deny the talent of the members of N.W.A, but I feel that artists and bands that perform actual Rock and Roll, that have been around since the 1960s and 70s, should have first crack at induction. Here are those aforementioned artists and bands that should get the recognition that they deserve:

The Moody Blues

Jethro Tull
