Guns N' Roses to be Inducted in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2012
I may be the last remaining GNR-defender on the internet -- and as such, it is my duty to by psyched by the news that GNR is getting inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in their first fucking year of eligibility!!!
Rolling Stone coverage here.
Yes, the idea of the "Rock & Roll Hall of Fame" is inherently silly. Who gets in and who doesn't is ultimately meaningless because it's bloody rock & roll and nobody really gives a shit, aside from the excuse to argue over who didn't get in every year. Still, it produces a concert every year that can be pretty cool. And it forces long-disbanded bands to wring their hands over the decision to possibly reunite to accept the honor. If Axl and Slash were to reunite for this thing, I'm fairly certain the world would end just as the Mayans predicted.
