Here are the lists of Nominees:


Category 1 (1987 or older)
Alice in Chains (1987)
Bob Dylan (1961)
David Bowie (1964)
KISS (1973)
Led Zeppelin (1968)
Neil Young (1966)
Nirvana (1987)
Radiohead (1985)
Rush (1968)
The Beatles (1962)
The Ramones (1974)
Tom Waits (1972)

Category 2 (1988 and younger)
DJ Shadow (1989)
Florence and the Machine (2007)
Taylor Swift (2006)


(Radiohead was a bit difficult to place... It was'nt until 1991 that they became Radiohead - but the original group - "On a Friday" was the exact same group - with no line up changes (as far as I can find). Their name change was the studio's idea - not (entirely) theirs...)

Each UM member gets 1 vote per category...  Voting will close this Thursday evening (about 8PM my time)... I will tally the votes and Friday Morning I will post the winners...

VOTING IS NOW OPEN

For discussion sake, I need to ask.   Did you choose KISS because you think they are most qualified or because they are not in the Rock and Roll HOF?
Obviously the Beatles and Led Zep are more qualified.

Catagory 1: Neil Young

Catagory 2: Do we have to select one? I could name someone that qualifies as "under 25" that apparently wasn't nominated - you know, like a "write-in" vote. :D

Seriously though, I didn't know that both Nirvana and Radiohead wouldn't be considered part of the "under 25" grouping or I would have nominated someone that I knew fell within that criteria that I wouldn't be embarressed to vote for.

Of course you do not have to vote for a category if you do not agree with any of the nominees...

That was one reason I really wasn't too enthused about an under 25 category... actually a rather limited pool of acts...

Quick poll... should we have a minimum number of votes for the winner? If an act gets only 1 vote should they be considered the winner? (I would assume that an act will get at least one vote after all they WERE nominated by someone...)

Category 1, Rush
Category 2, Taylor Swift.

And yep, I was the one that nominated Taylor. I don't like her much, but I can see her having staying power. I was underwhelmed by the under 25 performers.

But you wouldn't want to put someone in the HOF based on what they "might" do, would you?

Well, I also suggested over 25 being considered as Fame, and under 25 being considered for Nominee. They haven't truly hit the staying power of Fame yet. The title of the thread says Music Hall but leaves out the Fame part. So sure, since it isn't really a hall of fame, I'm willing to consider hopefuls too.

But getting back to my Quick Poll question...

Should we place a minimum on amount of votes received to declare a winner?

I think so.

I vote The Beatles.

And I can't vote for the 2nd as I don't know enough of any of them to say.

edit: Which is a funny thing to say for nominees of a hall of fame.
