Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx is kind of a douche.
He claims he would “probably” decline the nomination if the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame decided to induct his band.
May he never, ever get the chance to turn them down.
The truth is, the Crüe is eligible and they’re a legendary band.
But adding the likes of them to the Hall would only tarnish the joint.
So many other bands deserve to be honored. Deep Purple, for one. Iron Maiden, for another. The Moody Blues for a third. And Judas Priest for a fourth.
They’re all eligible and yet, have been rejected by the nominating committee for years.
Nikki, writing on Facebook, called the Rock Hall “a fixed old-boy network that has lost touch with art, songwriting craft, lyrics and influential music and usually has other agendas at hand. Young bands tell me it’s a joke, and these bands are the future.”
