these things are correct. Having a hall of fame for an art form which essentially is supposed to piss all over everything and spit in your fucking face if you have a problem with it is the stupidest thing ever. It's not like rock music is some sort of high brow intellectual academic field of study. it's not literary theory. it's about fuck you and fuck your mom too and get out of my fucking face

I called my dad. I told him that he couldn't say anything because it hadn't been publicly announced yet. I know my dad is a big Internet freak, and he's been known to be a Wikileaker. I was like, "Dad, you and I are blood. I'm going to tell you something, but you can't tell anybody." I guess it's just something that you want to share with the people that you're closest to, like family and longtime friends. My dad cried.

The most emotional part for me was thinking about Hillel Slovak. That was where it got me. I felt very good about it, but I felt very much like our work has only just begun. Now that we've got Josh in the band, we have a chance to make some great records over the next few years. But there was something about going back and thinking about something that we started in a living room with Hillel Slovak. Because he's no longer with us, it seemed emotional and beautiful. It's really kind of his induction that I'm most excited about. He's a beautiful person that picked up a guitar in the 1970s and didn't make it out of the 1980s, and he is getting honored for his beauty.

I don't feel weird about it. I know what the next few years look like for our band, and I'm incredibly excited to be playing with these guys. I feel like our creative well is running over. I don't think it's going to stigmatize us. Nothing has the power to diminish the love we have for what we're doing right now. It's just an interesting interlude to be accepted into the Hall of Fame while we're still vibrantly going about our business.

As a kid, I was anti-Elvis. I just didn't get it. Once I stopped being so judgmental I found the great wonder of Elvis and all that he did. I was a little self-centered gutter punk in the early 1980s and all I wanted to do was diss everybody. I remember going to Graceland as a kid and talking shit while I was there. Now if I went there, I'd think about all the great things he did and what a great musician he was.

for a brief moment SP was probably the biggest rock act around, but in terms of legacy they have been relegated to a footnote in the annals of alternative music. I have no idea which of these bands is already in the hall of fame, but I don't see SP getting in before Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, AIC, Pixies, Sonic Youth, R.E.M., Weezer, Radiohead, The Cure, The Smiths.... I wouldn't even be surprised if Bush, Live, and Silverchair beat them. No one gives a shit about Smashing Pumpkins anymore. Unfortunately they had almost no impact on the next generation of artists sonically, and their legacy was mostly carried forth by really terrible, obnoxious emo bands

At most it was 1995-96 or so, probably not even a full 12 months.

[quote]but in terms of legacy they have been relegated to a footnote in the annals of alternative music.

You think so because you like Wilco bands, but it's def. not true. SP reverberates anywhere people use pedals and want to create droning walls of gee-tars.

I have no idea which of these bands is already in the hall of fame, but I don't see SP getting in before Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, AIC, Pixies, Sonic Youth, R.E.M., Weezer, Radiohead, The Cure, The Smiths....

I feel like the smiths would decline, seems like something mozzer would do and marr doesn't want to be famous.

I don't see the pixies going because i think the tourist attraction is looking for Good Time Rock and Roll kind of thing because their target demo is 50 year old geezer rock dudes

they want to get us in there and they are either adding or have added nirvana. i think the time has passed on the pixies. REM is a fucking shoe in and a great example of what "the biggest band around" looks like.

Sonic Youth i doubt it too arty and still not mainstream, radiohead probably, the cure's already in AFAIK, PJ definitely it's the kind of jam band thing they want to encourage, soundgarden ditto, weezer definitely rivers cuomo would be so into this dumb shit, AIC i think is actually more of a footnote than SP. They just sound like black sabbath on heroin it's not like they were actually innovative or good. In fact, AIC is practically the major culprit for Nickelback.

I wouldn't even be surprised if Bush, Live, and Silverchair beat them.

I think the only three major alternative bands that have gotten in (who were big in the 90's) are RHCP, Nirvana and R.E.M. I'm pretty sure Radiohead is getting in before SP, along with The Smiths.

I do believe SP is getting in though, but it may not be for another 5-10 years. And its true that they don't matter anymore, but neither does R.E.M. Radiohead is probably going to have a fallout with the business soon enough as well, with all their pretentious crap.

Trots your post is ten kinds of screwed up b/c margin and it took me several minutes to successfully copy paste just to read it so I'm not even going to attempt to quote it, but this is in response:

so who are these bands so interested in emulating SP? I mean I know they are around, but I just don't think it's a significant thing. I think "Wilco bands" have done much more to shape rock music in the last ten years than any descendent of SP. Yuck and Joy Formidable would probably list the Pumpkins as a big influence, but I think these bands themselves are kind of a niche thing (well what isn't these days with the fracturing of media because of the internet but I digress). Basically I wasn't saying that I don't think anyone remembers SP whatsoever, but I'm not convinced they contributed too much to what artists of the next generation have done overall. And honestly Joy Formidable and some other bands of that ilk are good, but it's kind of a pale comparison standing next to the Pumpkins.

uh yeah that's like literally what I just said. I think you are still kind of missing my point though. When I say SP's LEGACY I am not really talking about how I hold them in my mind personally, I am trying to make a generalization about how the band has aged in the cultural consciousness of people who like "alternative" or indie music, or just rock music in general. "Wilco bands" have been a lot more popular and sold a lot more albums and been a lot more successful with college radio and those kinds of things over the last ten years than shoegaze or hard rock bands. Which is basically what I meant by legacy. I'm not making an argument on how important or original I personally think SP is because I would still rate them well above pretty much any other 90s band in terms of their musical accomplishments. I just think that in general, young rock and roll type people are not too interested in that vein of music these days compared to the lasting and more mainstream, broad, cross-genre impact of bands like Wilco, or Radiohead

Just like every other band (including SP) who were big in the 90's. The smiley face indicated shame for the human race.

they are absolutely going to get in. i think RRHOF is stupid too but the big question is, will james show up? this is going to be in two years. i wonder if he realizes. most likely the guy from the killers gives a speech and then billy and jimmy and 2 random people will play today, 1979 and then, upon billy's insistence glass and the ghost children and heavy metal machine.

SP, who were in NO way punk rock, featuring Billy Corgan, whom NObody liked because he was such a crybaby

They're up against Blur, Alice In Chains, Moby, Teenage Fanclub, Hole and Ice Cube among many others 'waiting in line'. Will they get inducted?

back to this original post though, if that's who they're competing against i think they have a damn good chance. as much as i like blur, they didn't really "make it too big" in the US aside from a couple of singles, which isn't really important to me but seems like a deciding factor on this sort of thing?

Ice Cube, uh, sure if you're going to start inducting rap into rock hall of fame. actually that'd be pretty awesome, but still i don't think he'd make it before SP

alice in chains is formidable, but in the end as two bands from around that era i'd say smashing pumpkins would edge them out easily as being seen as the more influential & even distinctive band

in conclusion: i do heartily believe The Smashing Pumpkins will be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame of Cleveland, OH!

yeah i know you don't get music, and have no appreciation for sonic youth's wide ranging influence and probably have never heard of Daydream Nation.

you can keep reiterating it if you'd like but it's unnecessary and redundant at this point



and probably have never heard of Daydream Nation.

I'd say at least ELO, Yes and The Cars should get in before PJ, SP or AIC.

Rider

There are literally hundreds of bands ahead of SP.

Billy totally shitting on his legacy while pissing off every single person in the music industry has virtually assured he will never get in.

I'm not sure why people think he has a chance or are even upset that he has no chance.

Actually as a Rush fan, I came to detest the fan base that devoted itself to pressuring the RNRHOF to put them in. It got to the point where it was cooler they weren't in, because everybody knew they should be and it started to dent the credibility of the Hall, not the band. To stop the embarrassment they got inducted. Damnit!

And that is why Alex Lifeson didn't give a shit and made thee best acceptance speech OF ALL TIME!!!

Rush have some annoying characteristics. The singer sounds a bit odd. They tend to sing about scifi and fantasy stuff, they're a bit proggy, their lyrics are a bit duff sometimes. But i do like them on occasion.

lol. Next time your band goes 40 years without a line-up change or much change in their entire touring entourage, you can call yourself overrated too.

The first Rush album is so good, whenever it was first played on the radio people thought it was a new Led Zeppelin record.
