The Jackson 5 and the Ronettes are the original "corporate rock" bands.

KISS are corporate rock icons with a carefully managed media empire and image.

I agree the J5 is the finest bubblegum anyone could ever hope to step his Cesare Paciottis into.

"What does it matter if the songs of J5/The Ronettes were written by outsiders? They still were exceptional performers putting out some of the best tunes of their day." - Casper

I actually could sense the go-nowhere Britney Spears argument approaching and nearly included it in my post just to stop you in your tracks. Britney Spears wasn't making the best music of her time like those other two artists were and none of it has aged well. Big difference, my friend. Let's not forget the fact that she lip synched, isn't a great vocal talent, blah blah blah.

"The moral of this story is it's OK to have a corporate media empire and image (including lying about the age of the lead singer) It's OK to market pants patches, posters, coloring books, magazines and Saturday morning cartoon shows as long as the tunes are good."

I concur with you that musically the Jackson 5 and The Ronettes are in another category from the Ms. Spears crowd. I was not questioning their merit whatsoever.

It's time for Janet Jackson to also be considered.

Did you know in the year 1970, The J5 knocked the Fab Four aka The Beatles out of the summit twice. First, "ABC" knocked "Let it Be" out of number one on April 25,1970 then a couple of months later, "The Love You Save" knocked "The Long And Winding Road" out of number one on June 27, 1970. A mere eighteen years later, Michael Jackson's "The Way You Make Me Feel" knocked George Harrison's "Got My Mind Set On You" out of number one on January 23, 1988

The Jackson 5 should have been inducted as The Jackson 5 / The Jacksons, that way, Randy Jackson would have been inducted with them as well.

The reason they were not nominated and inducted in 1997 as The Jackson Five/The Jacksons is because The Jacksons were not qualified for The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame until 2001. The Rock Hall should have waited but they didn't. The Jacksons can still be inducted separately.

which will never, ever, happen.

Shame younger brother Randy wasn't inducted, pretty much after the J5 left Motown Michael and Randy wrote all the good music for the Jacksons such as Shake Your Body, Lovely One, and some others. I also think the Triumph album should be an essential album. It is a very underrated album and it shows off the creative side in the Jackson 5.

Why did they put these guys in the hall? I don't think that artists should be allowed in if they had a large part of their fanbase being kids. I mean... Seriously? LED ZEPPELIN appealling to 10 year olds? PINK FLOYD to 9 year old girls? The hall shouldn't induct artists unless the vast majority of their fanbase was teens and young adults. Yall can make a case for the Jacksons but still will fail. They were influential but INNOVATION!! How were the Jackson 5 innovative? Come on. What will you people say if they chose the NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK over GREEN DAY. The BACKSTREET BOYS over PEARL JAM. *NSYNC over NICKELBACK. THE JONAS BROTHERS over THE KILLERS. What will yall say. They should have chosen FLEETWOOD MAC or SANTANA in '97 over THE JACKSON 5. I dare yall to make a case for any of these comparisons

"The Jacksons"(post-Motown) should also be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Randy Jackson got cheated, and much of the independent songwriting talent of The Jacksons were ignored! The Jackson, Triumph and Destiny are AWESOME albums! And some of the best songs during The Jacksons era had , along with Michael, Randy Jackson's name written all over them. All of the brothers were hardworking, extremely talented and popular at that time and should be recognized.
