It happens every year.
Whenever the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees are announced, inevitably someone will be passed over and the Internet will roar: "But what about...." "How could they not include..." etc, etc.
This year's Hall of Fame class includes Nirvana, Kiss, Hall and Oates, Peter Gabriel, Linda Ronstadt and Cat Stevens. But more than who was named, folks want to talk about who didn't make the cut.
Here are some of the suggestions from @CNNShowbiz followers on Twitter:
Cleveland.com writer Troy L. Smith questions why acts such as Bon Jovi, Cars and Cheap Trick have not yet found their way into the hallowed halls.
"Should the fact that bands such as Chicago, Bon Jovi and Journey weren't critical darlings mar their impact on rock music?" Smith writes. "Should more pop-oriented acts such as Duran Duran and Depeche Mode be considered alongside traditional rock bands? Should hip-hop acts even be mentioned?"
MTV notes that "Among the acts that didn't make it in this time around are hip-hop legends N.W.A. and LL Cool J, as well as shambolic indie rock godheads the Replacements."
