The Smiths nominated for Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame 2015

Re: Vote for the 2015 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductees (including The Smiths)

No thanks.

The Smiths is against the establishment, no need to be included in a showbiz shoulder-patting crowd.

Cast your vote for the nominees you believe to be most deserving of induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame! The top five artists, as selected by the public, will comprise a fans’ ballot that will be tallied along with the other ballots to choose the 2015 inductees.

I want them to win, if only to see Moz (and Johnny?) issue a scathing refusal to have anything to do with it. :p

If they serve meat at the awards show he won't go.

Pretty tough competition IMO. Green Day and NIN have left quite a mark on the US rock scene. Lou Reed is a legend...VU and all. And The Spinners...Philly represent! Stevie Ray being "Late" adds a few more votes his way. Joan Jett's catalog could be considered "thin", but she is influential given she is one of a number of very few women to front a successful rock band.

It is not supposed to be the US Hall of Fame, but I think it will take a lot more to push the Smith's into the Hall. Let's hope for knowledgeable, aware voters, and if The Smiths are voted in I hope they can be adult enough to show up together. There is no need for them to perform, but it would be a shame to waste a once in a lifetime moment to accept an honor that each of them earned even if it is argued on this site as to the degree each is deserved.

You do realise, if they did get inducted, the only four Smiths who would turn up would be Mike Joyce, Andy Rourke, Craig Gannon and Dale Hibbert? Maybe they could play 'Money Changes Everything' - that would be quite interesting.

What a headache if they won though.

I don't mind that they don't get in by the fact that terrible band like green day would. They've sold many a record but not many of them good.

Oh. Good god. This could be very interesting indeed.

Will the "lawnmower repair man" get onto the stage.

I KNOW that's bitchy, but I don't care.
