"Since it opened, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has fielded about as much criticism as you’d expect. Why is this band in, and that band not in?

How much should popularity weigh against traditional critical values like innovation and influence?"

Salon's Scott Timberg picked apart the 2017 list of nominees into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Read the entire piece here, and vote below on which snubbed band most deserves a spot.
