"All they do in this town is give awards. Best Fascist Dictator: Adolph Hitler!"
The next nine nominees for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame were announced yesterday. In no particular order they are Run-DMC, Metallica, The Stooges, Jeff Beck, Little Anthony and the Imperials, Wanda Jackson, Bobby Womack , War and Chic.
All worthy, no question about it, but if we were a betting man, we'd agree with Kent Jones on yesterday's Rachel Maddow Show: Metallica is a shoe-in. C'mon -- if people don't vote for them, James Hetfield and company will come to their house and kill them.
