Song of the Day  :  AC/DC – Rock and Roll Ain’t Noise Pollution

The 2011 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominees are announced! 

Listen up, Rock fans. The gods atop Mt. Olympus stormed the doors of The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Through the molten rock and lightning geysers, they somehow managed to forge an envelope readable to the human eye. This envelope, reproduced of dragon tears, siren cries, and unicorn horn, contained the list of nominees for the 2011 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction.

And now we pass this record unto you. Use it wisely, because one of our interns already mistook it for toilet paper.

Among this years musicians are Alice Cooper, the Beastie Boys, Neil Diamond, the J. Geils Band, and Donna Summer, just to name a few.

The process is fairly simple. Now that there has been a list of nominees generated, votes will be cast by rock hall voters (500 of them!) and previous inductees. The winners are announced in December, and on March 14th the winners are inducted into The Hall. While that is all us “regular people” know about the process, we’re sure the hazing of these nominees is nothing to joke about. Man, can you imagine Alice Cooper, LL Cool J, and Bon Jovi forced to submit themselves to The Paddle?

The full list of this year’s nominees is as follows:

Alice Cooper

Beastie Boys

Bon Jovi


Neil Diamond


Dr. John

J. Geils Band

LL Cool J

Darlene Love

Laura Nyro

Donna Summer

Joe Tex

Tom Waits

Chuck Willis

    They should sacrifice the inductee — you know, burn him at the stake. All the more reason for choosing Laura Nyro, she’s already a step ahead of the curve.
