ABBA ain't rock 'n' roll

Did Oral Roberts drop dead because he learned that ABBA is going to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame while KISS and the Red Hot Chili Peppers are not? We realize that Rolling Stone publisher Jan Wenner has control of the voting, but don't think it's the proper way to indulge in his late-in-life homosexual awakening (not that there's anything wrong with that, or with those Swedish swingers ABBA). We'll go out on a limb and and submit that ABBA is not rock 'n' roll, nor even part of rock 'n' roll culture, and that this latest stunt only makes the Cleveland hall a little more irrelevant.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is a SHAM! Especially since the FIRST female Rock and Roll Artist isn't in there, nor will likely see the light of day to be inducted! ... Who is this singer, you might ask? ... MS. CONNIE FRANCIS!!!!

Others who are NOT Rock and Roll are in there, such as Madonna, Donna Summer, Sugar Hill Gang, etc. etc. etc .... Seems The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame should change their name!
