Until then...Madonna, Dionne Warwick, Donna Summer are not rock and roll by even the broadest definition.
But that's directly contradicted by the fact that, by the Hall's definition, two of them are.

We're kind of going in circles here.

If they called it "The Music Hall of Fame" then that would make a lot more sense.

As it stands, they are letting people into the "Rock and Roll Hall of Fame" that don't play rock and roll music.

As has been said, the "Rock and Roll" title is what causes all the controversy. Either be more selective, or change the name of the place.

That's what I think.
