Would You Vote Madonna To The Hall Of Fame?

Madonna just got her very first nomination to be elected to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and we think it's very well deserved. However, she does have some stiff competition including John Mellencamp and the Beastie Boys, and only 5 of the 9 nominees will make it. So tell us — would you vote Madonna into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame?

I am no longer a fan, but she has been a huge influence on POP music. Kind of annoying that she would be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, but since there isn't one for Pop music then options are limited. She deserves it even if I don't really like her anymore. Could we please act our age, Madonna? Newsflash: you aren't 20 or even 30 anymore. A little less muscle and spandex would be much more appropriate looking on you!

"Rock n' Roll" Hall of fame was never about the hard rock bands only. In fact, many of the fist inductees were people that sing soul like, Ray Charles,James Brown or the Queen of soul, Aretha Franklin. It depends of what kind of music you like to think if Madonna's good or not. If you don't like her, well that personal choice, but she always gets good reviews for her work, and she's produced very impresive albums such as "Like a Prayer", "Ray of Light", "Music".Besides, RR and VH1 named her in their list of 100 best artit in music of all time (yes! along with Bob Dylan, the Beatles and the Rolling Stones), so I don't think she can be considered that bad even if some of you don't like her. I totally think she deserves being inducted!

Key word? "Rock and Roll". Madonna may be great and have done a lot for music, but she simply isn't rock.

Um, no. She made some shitty pop songs and all she did was take a page from Bowie in constantly evolving. She's hardly a true original. Plus, a lot of what she did was for shock value - she never seemed sincere in my honest opinion.

if she had retired before Ray of Light I would still be one of her biggest fans. she got boring and is getting lame. I agree with cravinsugar... she might be a pop icon but there is no rock in association with Madonna.

She's definitely not part of the rock scene. She makes pop music. She's more of an entertainer than she is a musically talented person. She's overrated.

Has anyone heard her during a concert? She can't sing. Hopefully she has back-up singers! She knows how to be aheadd of the trends and choosing the people she works with but those are her only gifts.

Like I said, the RRHF is a joke now. Might as well let her in.

BTW, folks, half of the people already in the Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame aren't really rock n' roll. She should've been in there years ago. Love her or hate her, she has made a huge impact on music. More so than Mellancamp, for sure.

a lot of people feel like you do but i think the woman can sing she can dance and hard work and some talent and a whole lot of business savvy have gotten her to where she is. unlike a lot of other divas she hasn't been in rehab, no jail, no break downs and a lot of bands have come and gone and had a way shorter life span than hers. i love her music ad I think she deserves a bit of recognition. like someone said before the hall of fame is no longer really about rock, things have changed i think and there are no more real "rockers" left.

oh, and yes, if in a physical fight, madonna would probably win becuase of her man arms. but diana would make hr fall on her face in a sing off.

sorry nyra, i just can't see how madonna is rock and roll. she is pop...a popstar, and nothing more. Nirvana was nothing but a garage band. but the difference here is...one is pop, the other band. one means femaile dancing, one means band playing rock. thats all im saying.

i didn't ay she can out sing Diana Ross, cravin i said in a fight, jeez note the word fight, You see the way you love nirvana and loathe madonna is the way i loathe nirvana and love madonna, we just have different tastes but don't get my words twisted and don'insult me over something so trivial like who's better.

Nyara, you need medication if you think Madonna can out sing the Queen of Soul. And, who has madonna impacted musically other than Brittan train wreck spears? Nirvana did not only crack the market, but completely influenced the next gernation of rock and roll bands. Madonna sings, lip syncs, wears slutty clothes and dances. Any robot can do that. (see brit brit)

Uh...no. She is not a musician, she is an entertainer and songwriter (yes there is a difference). And none of her music is considered Rock. If she can be put in the same category as REM and the Ramones, then someone please just shoot me now.

She deserves it!

Cravin that's you and your taste and your opinion but millions of people think otherwise so there's no need to get worked up, what i said is how i feel just like i think nirvana so what. he was a drugged up musician who wrote some angsty songs and happened to crack the market at the time but a lot of people think otherwise, live and let live. i love her music.
