METALLICA WILL BE INDUCTED INTO THE ROCK N’ ROLL HALL OF FAME BY… FLEA?
I know this probably too much Metallica news for one day, but fuck it, I gotta get this off my chest.
I don’t have anything against Flea. I don’t have anything against the Red Hot Chili Peppers. And I know that the Rock N’ Roll Hall of Fame is probably even more insignificant than the Grammys.
Still: I just can’t believe that in the entire world, there was NO ONE MORE METAL who could have inducted the band. I understand they want someone whose name they can say on TV to boost ratings, but there had to be SOMEONE more qualified. Is there a rule against having a band that was inducting do the inducting? Were the dudes from Black Sabbath not available? Slash? Eddie Van Halen? Alice in Chains? Marilyn Manson? ANYONE?
What nonsense. We know the RN’R Hall of Fame doesn’t know any better – Flea is probably just as metal as Dimebag to them – but the band couldn’t intervene any? It’s like having Avril Lavigne perform at the MTV Icon thing – the band may as well show up wearing t-shirts that say “WE DON’T GIVE A FUCK, PAY US.”
Anyway, this ridiculousness will air on Fuse… sometime. I dunno. I’m just gonna watch it on the internet later, so, really who gives a fuck?
