They're mad because, we don't kiss ass like some of the bands do. And for the record, Riverfront Times can kiss my ass!

it's not a hall of fame, it's a hall of favorites.

All I'm saying is that if you going to do a "First Year Hall of Fame" you could have treated them better than just hardly mentioning them.  No write ups on them even, No pictures of them on the website or paper and not even an award or some recognition.  If you do this next year please treat the performers better and give them something for their hardwork.  Especially if you keep calling this a "Hall of Fame".

I thought the idea behind the Hall Of Fame was, the RFT will stop bothering you (with pesky award nominations and so on), forever.  Shouldn't we all be so lucky?

Surprised not to see Men Working In Trees on this list and totally agree that Dancehall, Reggae and even Dance are not represented.  Just sayin'...

 Scene of Irony? Gimme a break. Over the years, I have been in bands who were RFT darlings and others who weren't given the time of day.

Haha, are you actually talking about Scene of Irony like they are a real band?

Does Scene of Irony have to headline a two year world tour and have Bad Religion and Refused open for them to get on one of these list some day?

Double Yawn.....Americana, Chamber-pop? WTF is that? Two Hip-hop categories and a Funk/Soul, but no Dancehall or Reggae?
