Default 20 Women Who Should Be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

20 Women Who Should Be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
By Annie Zaleski

When the Steve Miller Band was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and Museum a few weeks ago, Miller took the opportunity in his induction speech to thank “all the women in my life for pointing me in the right direction” — and, several beats later, implored the Hall to be “more inclusive of women and to be more transparent in your dealings with the public, and most importantly, to do much more to revive music in our schools.”

A day before Miller’s speech, a widely shared article, “There Are Not Enough Women in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame,” went one step further and laid out all of the women not inducted. The piece also noted some even more sobering facts: “Apparently only 37 female performers and bands with women” fit the induction criteria of demonstrating “overall excellence,” while “zero of the executives, managers and producers inducted have been women. Only one woman, Carole King, has been inducted for her songwriting” … and she had to share that honor with her ex-husband and songwriting partner Gerry Goffin.

It’s insulting (if not downright sexist) that so few women have been deemed worthy of a Hall of Fame slot, especially considering the nominations draw from decades of popular music at this point.

And so Ultimate Classic Rock came up with a list of 20 should-be inductees who deserve to be in the Hall because they’ve contributed to the vibrant pantheon of rock ‘n’ roll and its offshoots — embodying the “broad umbrella” of influences, as the Rock Hall is fond of saying.


Stevie Nicks
Sure, Stevie Nicks is in the Rock Hall as a member of Fleetwood Mac. However, plenty of male band members — including Rod Stewart, Peter Gabriel, Eric Clapton and every member of the Beatles — are also in as solo artists. And Nicks' solo career, besides spawning classic duets (the Tom Petty-featuring "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around") and several empowering anthems ("Stand Back") is also commercially successful: In fact, Nicks has 10 Top 40 hits, just one less than Ringo Starr.

Oh you're right. They have in 1995: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...Fame_inductees They haven't received Grammys I think?
I'm too forgetful of these things, maybe that's why I like reading about them. Yes, Iron Maiden, Journey, Doobie Brothers, Bon Jovi, King Crimson, Roxy Music, The Moddy Blues, The Cure, Emerson Lake and Palmer, Jethro Tull, Electric Light Orchestra and Dire Straits are among the most lamented that have been overlooked.
However we all forgot that today is the 35th anniversary of Trouble In Shangri-La.

No Patsy Cline, Ella Fitzgerald, Nina Simone, Kate Bush or Carole King. Thats really shocking.

It's so subjective, but out of those the first I'd look to would be Bon Jovi and Roxy Music.

Yeah, and no Pat Benatar too.
I think overall the Progressive groups have a greater chance in being inducted earlier.

Without a doubt Stevie Nicks should be in the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame. But its so corrupt. Isn't Madonna in it? Madonna does not write her own songs nor does she play rock. Why would Madonna be in the Rock N Roll hall of fame? She can get all the pop awards she wants or create a Pop Hall of Fame. I believe only rock stars should be in the hall.

That's true but in this era of musical miscellany how do you discern what is rock by what isn't?
By strict definition Prince shouldn't be in the Rock & Roll Hall of fame but I truly believe he is a rockstar and I wouldn't want him out. Ah ah, in that case he should be on a Funk Hall of fame or a R&B Hall of fame.

I can see rock entertainers entering the Country Music Hall A Fame quickly since the music gender thing is a bloody cluster effed mixed bag now.

I agree with that statement.

Blah. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is a joke. They are nothing more than a vomit stain in my opinion. Sorry to be graphic.

Madonna writes a lot of her own music and is extremely talented and worthy of being there. But isn't Miley Cyrus also in it? Someone like THAT shouldn't be there.

No...Miley Cyrus is not in it. You have to have 25 years between now and when you released your first record.

AMEN I'm so sick of people claiming she doesn't write songs...ask any of her co-writers and producers. Madonna deserves to be there. Period. End of discussion.
