The Rock Hall Class of 2020

It seems like every year people complain about who's getting inducted . . . or NOT inducted . . . into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Well, this year won't be any different.

January 16, 2020

Yesterday, the Rock Hall announced the Class of 2020:  The Doobie Brothers, Whitney Houston, Depeche Mode, Nine Inch Nails, T. Rex, and The Notorious B.I.G.

TheDave Matthews Band, which won the FAN vote, did NOT make the cut . . . and in third place, the Doobie Brothers were the only act in the fans' Top Five.

In addition to Dave Matthews and the Doobies, the fans wanted to see Pat Benatar, Soundgarden, and Judas Priest inducted.  They were not.

As for the actual inductees, Whitney Houston came in sixth in the fan vote, Depeche Mode was seventh, and Nine Inch Nails, T. Rex, and the Notorious B.I.G. came in 11th, 12th, and 13th out of the 16 nominees.

For what it's worth, there shouldn't be much reunion drama this year.  The Doobie Brothers are already touring with Michael McDonald again.
