Will Sleater-Kinney be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame?
"Musical excellence is the essential qualification for induction."

S-K maybe understands a key rock (or sports, or business, or whatever-you-wish-to-apply-it-to) truism:

Quit (or die/be killed) on top.

I'll miss them, but at least they have a good body of work, and I got to see them twice.

Induction seems highly likely. I'm not really into their stuff, but I can understand why they had such a devoted following.

Absolutely one of the finest rock and roll bands of the last 10 years. Hopefully a lot of their teenage fans will turn into rock stars and give them the props they deserve. S-K in 2020!

I love Sleater-Kinney's stuff. they're so awesome and i miss thm so much. but i think they are one the the best grl bands or just one of the best punk bands ever.

Sadly, those bands that are deserving are not often chosen and those bands that are "popular" are.

I'd like to see Sleater-Kinney earn such acclaim in the years ahead, but I don't think they need it. They stand on their own as one of the greatest bands of the last decade. I miss them and I feel very grateful that I got to see them live on three separate occasions.

I wanna be their Joey Ramone.

With Carrie Brownstein's current high profile with "Portlandia", I'm surprised to see that we've overlooked inducting anything from Sleater-Kinney, one of the most consistently acclaimed bands of the 90s. I can think of at least three deserving albums that hold up as classics of the era. They just moved up my queue.

At least outside USA, Bikini Kill is way more influential.

And let's not forget The Runaways, The Slits, L7, Babes In Toyland...

Going to see these gals tonight. Pretty stoked. Will post a recap of their performance sometime next week.

saw this band Sunday night up in Cincinnati. Great show by a great band. They played for about 80 minutes. Hardly any chit-chat, just go right into the next song (which I like).

They had a touring backup guitarist/keyboard player. No bass player in this outfit. They thrash guitars. Was very impressed with drummer (Janet Weiss). Man, can she lay down the beat! Saw her on one song playing the crap out of the drums & also using the neck device to play harmonica as well. Have never seen anyone simultaneously playing a drum kit & blowing on harmonica (Neal Peart has probably done it, but I've never seen him). If you get a chance, catch em. You will not regret it.

Security Question:

Which letter is Springsteen's band named after?
