(What You Know and Drop It Like It's Hot got cut off because I didn't think they needed the help. Monster, Runaway, and Love the Way You Lie were just painful cuts.)

Will switch too Runaway if its close to winning, just wanted to avoid a too-Kanye centric ballot.

About Thin Lizzy, AL Bones wrote:
  Thin Lizzy is and always will be the greatest band there ever was. More bands today are influenced by Thin Lizzy then the Beatles. They were blatantly ripped off because they were so underrated that no one would ever know where "Your" awesome music came from..Unfortunately people's knowledge of Thin Lizzy doesn't expand further then Boys, Jail, and Whiskey and that's too bad. Cause there are imitators out there right now making it in music, that are being claimed as original artists, yet they've only stole from one band... THIN LIZZY.

About 2Pac, NMCB1Vet88 wrote:
  Wow,to all the "civilians" on here that keeps saying this is the "Rock And Roll" Hall of Fame, have you ever been, I have. If you did you wouldn't gloat about your dispute. It's really the music hall of fame, why its named it after one broad and open genre I don't know, but what I do know is that all great artist and I do mean artist(someone talented in multiple arts) deserves an induction. I say that to say this Tupac Amaru Shakur deserves it. P.S my musical taste is broad, even though I was raised on Jazz, R&B, and Hip-Hop. Took me to join the military and travel the world to experience real music as in all music not one genre. If music consisted of one specific sounding genre it wouldn't last a few decades because as lifeforms we evolve or we die. FACTS, don't believe me next time your on pandora, look at the musical influences on your favorite artists. They inspire each other.

  Paul K - No problem. I was considering pulling the nomination anyway. I think it's borderline hip hop ("Tightrope" is closer, but I "Q.U.E.E.N." had a better shot), but I can see why it would belong in R&B instead.

It's at the top of my list for 2013 and it's a lock for me to vote for it in the regular May round. The problem is it is R&B and not hip hop/rap. I really want this song inducted eventually, but the Hip Hop/ Rap Special Election is not it's round.

  Yikes...I didn't see your ranking until I posted mine, Darren. So strange that our preferences are nearly the inverse of one another's!

About Jack Johnson, Karl Singleton wrote:
  OK. For starters, Jack Johnson has done NOTHING for rock. I mean, this guy is almost children's music. There are song titles that make him sound like he's a children's artist. Examples: "Banana Pancakes", "Bubble Toes", "Upside Down" and "Flake". Those are not titles for rock songs. So, R&RHOF PLEASE DO NOT LET HIM IN!!
