Wow, ABBA in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame?
I don’t know what to say. They’ve made some odd choices for inductees in the past. But ABBA, really? I’m not bashing the band, they are fine for what they are or were. But they were not a rock band and there are so many other bands who have been looked over who are rockers. Sad.
When I first heard that they were opening a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland I wanted to go. I don’t anymore. It’s not about ABBA. Now, it’s about my disgust with the small group of people who have the power to choose the nominees and vote them in. They’ve helped me remember why Roger Daltrey singing, “I hope I die before I get old,” was cool.
