    I still don’t get the angst over which genres are now included. Yeah originally it was the R&RHOF. My guess is the powers that be realized if they limited inductions to just rock acts they’d run out of options. So they expanded their footprint and kept the name. Probably because it was just easier.

     

    Run out of options? Now that’s funny.  Lots of worthy and deserving Rock and Roll bands and performers get passed over every year in favor of acts that have at best a tangential connection to Rock and Roll.
