Rock And Roll?

I've never watched the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductions, never visited the place, and have no intention of doing so, even if it weren't in Cleveland.

So it would seem I have no vested interest here, but even still, Madonna?? Hey, nothing against her; I have a couple of her records and have danced in clubs to quite a few more. I've never been to one of her shows, but would gladly go if someone gave me a ticket. Hell, I saw Desperately Seeking Susan in a theater and liked it.

But rock and roll? Madonna? What do these two have in common? As Edwin Starr would have put it, absolutely nothing. Amirite?

The RNRHOF uses rock and roll as a blanket term for any sort of popular music.

If you look at the list of inductees (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Rock_and_Roll_Hall_of_Fame_inductees) you'll see some much odder acts than Madonna (Marvis Gaye, Gladys Knight, The Bee Gees, etc.)

Frankly I agree with John Lydon that the musuem is a piss stain.
