Bon Jovi, you're to blame

You give the Hall of Fame… A bad name… *insert talk box solo here*

Alice Cooper and Bon Jovi are among 15 artists nominated for induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 2011. Other acts who were nominated are Beastie Boys Neil Diamond and LL Cool J”

And like that, the honor of being inducted in the “Hall of Fame” just went down the toilet. LL Cool J? Seriously? Is he gonna lick his lips and start saying “Baby… Baby… Baby” for his induction speech? What the hell… And then the Beastie Boys are gonna come on with some matching work uniforms and start doing robot dances? Jesus H. Motherfucking Christ. Who’s gonna induct them? Dr. Dre, yo?

I can’t believe I’m saying this but my vote is for Bon Jovi. Fuck, at least they can play instruments. Alice Cooper’s response to the nomination, after the jump.

“On behalf of Dennis (Dunaway), Neal (Smith), Michael (Bruce) and the late great Glen (Buxton), we are honored to be nominated for induction in to the Hall. Anytime you are nominated in your chosen profession, it’s definitely a compliment to be recognized.

It’s hard to fathom possibly being in the same club as artists who inspired us originally, like THE BEATLESTHE [ROLLINGSTONESTHE BEACH BOYSTHE WHOTHE YARDBIRDS, and Chuck Berry, and to be nominated the same year as legendary artists like my personal favorite songwriter of all time, Laura Nyro, as well as Donovan, who sang on our‘Billion Dollar Babies’ record, and our good friends in Bon Jovi, is a great feeling.

“Five guys starting a band, just hoping to meet girls and drink free beer, rehearsing and playing local bars five hours a night for the first few years — that was us. We came up with the theatrics and made every effort not to sacrifice the music one bit; we thought it was like our job to bring theatrics to rock ‘n’ roll. And then, amazingly enough, we were having a bunch of massive hit records which was proof that theatricality and rock ‘n’ roll could, in fact, be joined successfully. We’ve been told that we revolutionized the live concert experience and if that’s truly the case and it’s led to this nomination for induction into the Hall of Fame, the only thing to say is, of course, ‘There’s no business like show business!'”
