What's wrong with you people? Berlin was one the most popular groups in the 80's. With hits like The Metro, No More Words, Sex (I'm A...)& Take My Breath Away. They deserve a higher vote than that.

There's no justification for Berlin being in until the Krautrock of Kraftwerk and Can gets recognized.

That has nothing to do with anything. Berlin was a popular band at the time. They desereve a much higher vote than that.

What do you mean it has nothing to do with anything? If better bands who made huge innovations in the exact same genre/mode and they're not in, why should the bands living off their innovations be in? That'd be like letting The Clash in before The Stooges.

You're missing the point of this vote process. They are not asking who's better than who or who came first. They are asking if they're good enough to be in the HOF.

The question is "WILL" they get into the hall. When evaluating the question of will, you have to take precedents into account, and also who's in line in front of them.

Never mind the brain dead nay sayers, more votes for YES to Berlin. Thet're a damn good band and deserve to be in the HOF. So what if Kraftwerk came first, they had fewer hits than Berlin.

Berlin should definitley be a band in the rock n roll hall of fame. They defined rock and new wave in the eighties and they are great.

Just reading these postings and seeing the name "Sex, (I'm a..)" and remembering my local AOR station actually played it when it came out gave my stomach the urge to churn. The only band in the early 80's that could make Blondie & The Pretenders look deserving of the Hall of Fame.

I think they should be voted in,Heck they voted for "Madonna"Thats not even close to Rock N roll,If she can get in.... why not Berlin? The committy should get a better definition on what Rock N roll realy is!Berlin was closer to rock then The absalute CRAP thats getting voted for now!
