These guys were actually an awesome punk band back in the day when punk wasn't a bunch of whiny pussies with trust fund guitars who don't have anything to be angry about but mope around anyway.

The Dictators are in the Hall of Fame as part of the punk wing apparently. It's too bad because this means they'll probably never get in as performers. Little Steven likes them though, I think he said they were the link between MC5 and the Ramones, which I think is a fairly accurate description.

Unfortunately, after voting for both Lustmord & Fear Factory, as well as setting up the first in-house medical journal, I have been compelled to cease publication.

Will they get in? Of course not. Should they get in? Well, if it was a real RNR Hall of Fame, yes. But not the RNR Hall of Fame that has Hall and Oates in it.
