very cool that tony brummel gets to cast a vote

It's not even a contest. It's a slam dunk for Whitney Houston. Heaviest, most influencial rock artist of her generation. Or any generation. The guitars on I will always love you! HEAVY!

John Wylie has been spotted biting his knuckle, stating: "If I hadn't sold my label to that annoying Hot Topic kid, I could have nominated Until The End. I thought Brummel would do it for me, but now he's out of the business, too! Also, frankly, I'm surprised no one nominated Trust No One..."

Why isn't Machine Head nominated

How did DMB make the list? Notorious is more Rock & Roll than DMB.

I want to nominate you like an animal

Should be renamed to Music Hall of Fame. Basically if you sell more than 10m albums in your music career you will be inducted. ASID will be in there along with Suicide Silence and other notable death metal, deathcore, metalcore bands in the year 2041. I know I was there...more to come.

Whitney Houston and Notorious B.I.G. lol this whole thing is one big "rock n roll" joke.

Why mention that Bad Brains weren't nominated? Seriously. Why else wasn't nominated? Ummm Minor Threat, Dead Kennedys, Black Flag, umm Do they all get honorable mention for not being nominated? Know who else wasn't nominated? Me. And your mom.

Jordan Cooper here. I tried to nominate Slipknot. Tee hee!>> You mean the horrible 7" by the original Slipknot he put out in 1989? Still the worst record cover art for a Revelation Records release ever LOL.
