From MSN.com, Run-D.M.C. could “Walk This Way” into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
The 1980s rap act, along with Metallica and the Stooges are among the nine nominees for next year’s hall of fame class, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation announced Monday.
The other nominees are guitarist Jeff Beck, singer Wanda Jackson, Little Anthony and the Imperials, War, Bobby Womack, and disco and R&B group Chic, the only nominee back from last year’s ballot.
The five leading vote-getters will be announced in January and inducted April 4, 2009, in Cleveland.
The ceremony typically has been held in New York but is returning to Cleveland after more than a decade-long absence. Tickets will be made available to the public for the first time.
Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five opened the door for rap at the Rock Hall as the first hip-hop act to be inducted in 2007. Now, Run-D.M.C., nominated in the first year of its eligibility, has the chance to follow on the strength of rock and rap blends such as the 1986 cover of Aerosmith’s “Walk This Way” and classics like “It’s Tricky” and “My Adidas.”
Metallica jumped on the heavy metal wave of the ’80s and 25 years later is still selling out arenas. This month the group released “Death Magnetic,” which marks a return to its early speed metal days.
The Stooges, recently given props in the film “Juno,” get another shot after last appearing on the ballot two years ago.
Left off the ballot were Stevie Ray Vaughan and Bon Jovi. Both had been eligible for the first time. To be nominated an act must have released its first single or album 25 years prior.
More than 500 musicians, industry professionals and journalists vote on the inductions.
HRH Comment: Once again, some nominees make sense, and others do not.
Why don’t they rename this place, the Rock, Pop, Rap, Soul, R&B Hall of Fame? Then their choices might make more sense.
Acts who are getting the shaft that have released albums 25 years ago, Alice Cooper, KISS, Motley Crue, Rush, Triumph, Yes, Iron Maiden, Def Leppard and many more.
Metallica is nominated in their first year of eligibility (Kill em All was released in 1983). While it is cool that Metallica gets the nod, it is a major over sight by the Rock and Roll Hall of fame to not nominate any of the acts I listed above.
Putting Run D.M.C. or Chic in the Hall before any of the acts above is a complete and total joke, in my opinion.
What do you think of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominees for 2009?

Shinedown has been a real hit and miss band for me over the last few years. There are some songs that I like a lot by the band, but I typically struggle to listen to an entire album from beginning to end. The Sound of Madness is the first Shinedown album to change that.
The Sound of Madness has no less than 5 songs that could be instant radio hits. Yes, it really is that good.
The first time I listened to the song “Devour“, I thought it sounded more like a Disturbed song, than a Shinedown tune. Nonetheless this song has grown on me quite a bit, and a like it a lot.
The title track “Sound of Madness” is driven by a heavy bass line and rhythm guitar. This is another cool tune that is radio worthy.
I have always felt that best instrument that Shinedown has is the voice of Brent Smith. On “Second Chance” he lets his voice shine. This is one of my favorite songs on this record.
“Cry For Help” is the kind of chunky rocker that I would expect from Velvet Revolver, not Shinedown. This song does a good job at breaking up the pace on the record. This is the type of song that will pump the crowd up when played live.
“The Crow and the Butterfly” is a massive tune. This ballad like tune reminds of Guns ‘N Roses, “November Rain”. The production is huge on this song. This will be a major hit for Shinedown.
I was hoping for another rocker at this point on the album. “If You Only Knew” is a mid-tempo tune that sounds tailor made for radio. It is a good tune, but I wanted to hear something a little heavier. Luckily, I got my wish with “Sin With A Grin“. This rocker gets better with every listen.
“What a Shame” is one of the few songs that just hasn’t got its hooks into me yet. It kind of feels like it is trying to repeat the success of Shinedown’s tune “45”, but this song isn’t as good as that.
“Cyanide Sweet Tooth Suicide” is another heavy tune that rocks hard. I like this song a lot.
Something about “Breaking Inside” reminds me of Buckcherry’s “Sorry“. It doesn’t sound like “Sorry” but it has that same formula that could help propel this song to hit status.
“Call Me” closes out The Sound of Madness with a very good piano driven ballad. This is another solid tune, on an album that is full of them.
I must admit that I didn’t expect much from The Sound of Madness and it far exceeded my expectations. This is a strong album for Shinedown, and one of my favorites this year. Check it out!
