How did Steely Dan get in?! This is really odd. I'd think some slightly obscure band like Thin Lizzy would have a better chance to get in.

Yes Blueby. What exactly was so great about Steely Dan? I can think of dozens of bands who should have gotten in before them. Same thing applies to Talking Heads. WTF??

"Katy Lied" is a 70's classic. A truly timeless masterpiece. One of the Dan's best.

Classic Rock at it's best. A wealth of fine material gets my vote. Brecker and Fagan congrats!!

They are one of the most over rated bands of all time. Their music sucks. And to be inducted with legends like Aerosmith, Michael Jackson, and Queen that year is a disgrace!

Steely Dan represents one of the highest standards in recorded music, combining diverse musical styles (jazz, blues, rock, funk)into a totally original sound. They have been a great influence with musicians, were it really matters!

Latest RS has an article written by Mr. Fagen about his Coachella experience. In it he mentions AC/DC and says something to effect of 'I stopped listening to radio when our first album hit in 1972, so I'm not sure who they are, etc. etc.'

Steely Dan haters must not be actual musicians. If there are any musicians (on any level) who cannot appreciate the invested quality, clever creativity and unique sound of Steely Dan they must be living a comatose and vacuumed delusionary existence and their opinion is much less than rubbish! Non-musicians who hate Steely Dan: just sit down and shut up! No hope exists for you nor do you deserve any opinion until you play or write any song or anything of value.
