Classic Rock Bottom

There has been a lot of criticism in the direction of the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame. In 2011, the Bottom Feeders at Classic Rock Bottom decided to create our very own Classic Rock Bottom Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame to reflect what we believe a credible Hall should actually look like. This is our way of getting it right & putting together a true Hall that honors the deserving Rock legends we all love!

Fellow Bottom Feeders (A term of endearment for those who follow the feeds at Classic Rock Bottom), it’s time to submit your nominees for the 2022 Class of the Classic Rock Bottom Hall Of Fame. This year we are introducing a new category called Pioneers. This is for the artists who influenced, inspired and paved the way for our classic and modern rock artists. The criteria for this category is the artist had to chart in the 50’s or 60’s.

Post on this thread or message me a list of 10 artists, with the first listed being the one you want voted in the most. Their nomination will be weighed by the order in which you list them. In addition, give me a list of 3 nominees for the Legends award. The Legend Award goes to an artists that we lost this past year. For our new category Pioneers, give me a list of 5 artist that charted music in the 50’s or 60’s that you feel influenced and paved the way for classic and modern rock artists.

Below is a list of artist that have already been inducted in the Classic Rock Bottom Hall Of Fame, or you can view the Hall Of Fame pages on the Classic Rock Bottom Facebook Group Page. Note there were no inductees in 2020, due to the pandemic. Nominations must be submitted by Sunday, August 14th. Then an official ballot will be compiled from all the nominees.
