Hall & Oates Desperately Need Your Help

They’re losing ground in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Vote.


You may remember that Philly-bred songmeisters Hall & Oates are finalists for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. What you may not know? They need your help.

See, one component of the selection process is the fan vote. The top five vote-getters in an online poll comprise a “fan’s ballot” that is tallied along with other ballots to select the 2014 inductees. Right now: Hall & Oates are … sixth. Oh dear.

They’re behind Nirvana (sure), KISS (we understand), Yes (ummm…), Deep Purple (WTF??), and … Peter Gabriel. Really? If anybody’s actually listened to an entire Deep Purple album in one sitting, please step forward so we can award you this 1979 Ford Econoline van that has surely been your home for the last 20 years.

Anyway, you don’t have to hate Deep Purple. You just have to love Hall & Oates. And who doesn’t love Hall & Oates? Go vote, dammit.
