Assignment #1 Week of April 20

Dear Division 16,

This weekend, new artists were inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

You can read about the event in this article:

For your blog post this week, please think of a musician that you think should be nominated for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.  For this assignment, you don’t need to follow the “25 years since their first album” criteria, which means your nomination could be a current or new musician.

It needs to be someone who is not already a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and you need to give two reasons why you think they ought to be considered.  For example, I might suggest that KO’d should be nominated for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame because they have performed both original and cover songs for a wide number of audiences, and also because they have contributed so much to their community over the years, volunteering to play at Schools and Spring Flings.  They should receive extra recognition for “Winnie Won’t”, which involves instruments, vocals and fancy claps. 🙂

I look forward to your nominations!

    The musician I would like to have inducted is Chris Martin and the band Coldplay. They have a lot of enthusiastic and wonderful songs, like Paradise and Yellow. They understand how to really sing, and I think that their lyrics are very emotional and easy to sing along with. Their band was formed in 1996, and they are a British band. I think that other people respect Coldplay for who they really are, and that they are a great band!

  2. who gets money

    Daft Punk should be considered for the Music Hall of Fame because they are one of the oldest bands that have been continually as popular for all ages. People from 10 to 50 (or older) can enjoy their music, and they are famous all over the world. They have been popular since the 1990s. They are very interesting characters who wear helmets in public, and hide their faces. They helped to create a new type of music called “house”, and are vital to the French music industry. My favourite Daft Punk song is “Get Lucky” which is part of an album called Random Access Memories which won five Grammys and Album of the Year, as well as many smaller awards. We should induct them into the hall of fame because along with music they like to tell stories through cartoons timed to their music. They also work with movies, and made the soundtrack to Tron. Daft Punk are very popular and have been for years, and I think that they should be inducted to the Rock Hall of Fame.

    The band I would like to have inducted into the rock and roll hall of fame is is the “Plain white t’s”. They have had many hit songs like “hey there Delilah” and “rhythm of love” lots of people know them and love them. They have some acoustic songs that make their music unique and stand apart from other bands and singers inducted into the R and R hall of fame. They started writing their own songs in the year 2000 so they cant be inducted yet, but when the time comes I hope they do!

    I would nominate Ed Sheeran because his music reflects the world around him and his lyrics aren’t sugar coated like i don’t know (cough) Katy Perrys (cough) plus he raps and sings which I think is pretty cool since he’s got a British accent. Some of his really popular songs are Sing, The A Team, and Lego House and he just keeps coming out with more stuff if you haven’t ever listened to his music I highly suggest you do ’cause its AWESOME!

    The artist I would like to induct is Eminem because I think out of all the other artists in the world he worked the hardest to get to be one of the best in the world. Eminem grew up in a trailer park and his family had no money, so this made it very had for him to start his careeer in rap. An other reason why Eminem should be inducted is because he may be a rapper, but his poetry is amazing. His lyric really inspire me and make me feel sad sometimes, so this brings more emotion into his music. My favorite songs from Eminem are Without Me from the album Curtian Calls – The Hits and Stan. Some his music may have swearing in it, but image how much his family swore when he was a kid…

    I was really suprised that Sarah Mclachlan was not in the rock and roll hall of fame . She is a great singer with an original style of music . She is also very well known for her S.P.C.A commercials ( that make everyone cry ).
    My favourite song by Sarah Mclachlan is “ordinary miracle” from charlottes web .
    It really say that everything is beautiful.
    She also is the founder of the “Sarah Mclachan School of Music” ,for children in families that are in poverty.
    I think she deserves be inducted into the hall of fame becouse she isn’t just a singer , she is active in her community .

    if I were to induct someone or a band into the rock and roll hall of fame is” American authors” my first reason is they have a lot of happiness to there songs my favorite song is” best day of my life.” it so catchy. My second reason is that they are such a joy so many company’s have used this particular song for there commercials and people have and are using this song for ring tones and alerts.

  8. THE_MOST _AWESOME _PERSON3710

    The band that I think that should be nominate is Michael Franti and Spearhead. Because he has his own charity called do it for the love foundation and it was created for all the people that are sick or have a disease and it brings a little bit of joy in to there lives. Then he also invites all children on stage to give them a magical moment and he also has new musicains go on stage with him. He also sends important measges in his songs and some of measges are world wide, what measges he thinks are important and what he loves. Here are some of the songs that I think you should listen to witch are some my favourite songs witch are: All people, Do it for the love, 11:59, gangsta girl and the sound of sunshine. Please donate to do it for the love.

      I love Michael franti and spearhead! I saw them for free in Squamish! I was little and when he want into the crowd playing the guitar I followed him until he got back to the stage and mom and dad told me that I need stay close to them next time instead of running off like I did.

    I think that collective soul should be inducted into the rock’n’roll hall of fame because there band came up with a different kind of way to play the guitar and also (in my opinion) they are the greatest band of all time and there music sounds beautiful.They have a song called spit it out and that song I think was one of the few songs that won more that 15 awards in that year.

  10. Jr.fruitcake

    An artist I would like to be inducted in to the R&R hall of fame is “Macklemore” he is an amazing rapper who has sophisticated and sometimes humorous lyrics. He is also known for his song “Same Love” its lyrics and video are about gay discrimination and that we should all be who we are. His most famous hits are “Thrift Shop” and “Cant Hold Us” both of them are happy and funny. Another thing that I like about “Macklemore” is that he features people that are not getting a lot of publicity to give them a chance for people to notice them. He is also multi-talented, he can go at a fast pace but can slow down too like he does in “Same Love”. Anyway I think he deserves to be there when he is old enough.

    I think that Corblund should be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame because he plays with this fast speed and he is able to make it funny and I like that because a lot of Rock & Roll sounds really serious to me. a lot of his songs are about life and laws one of my favorite songs by him is ‘ The Truck got stuck ‘. ( in my opinion ) he has the best music and its AWESOME!.

    I would nominate a Japanese band named ONE OK ROCK. The reason I would nominate them is that you can hear all of the words and melody’s: played perfectly. And their songs actually mean something, while some songs are based on unimportant things that don’t matter. This band actually tells things in their songs and they are very good to listen to.

    I would nominate Ezra Kwizera. Ezra grew up as a Rwandan refugee in Uganda, him and his family experienced poverty and war but despite all that hardship Ezra became one of the most notable artists and song producers in Africa. Ezra sings and raps in English, Kinyarwanda, Luganda, Zulu and Swahili and mixing in all different kinds of genres. I think he should be inducted because even though he’s gone through super hard times he still pursued his dream and know he’s famous. ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

  14. The awesomest

    I think that a band that should be inducted into the rock and roll hall of fame is CHVRCHES because they make very interesting sounding music. My favourite one of their songs is “The Mother We Share” because it is catchy and I like the video.

  15. balloongirl123

    I think I want to induct to the rock and roll hall of fame is Cher.i wanted to do Cher because she has a wonderful voice and she is a really good singer.When I was watching the Jackson 5 I saw Cher in that video singing with the Jackson five and then I told my mom do you know Cher and she said yes.And I was really shock because I did not know that my mom knew her.So I want Cher to be in the rock and roll hall of fame.

  16. Ginger

    I think that Adam Levine from Maroon 5 should be nominated into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Adam Levine has a very unique voice and can tell a story with his lyrics. Some of my favourite songs by him are “Animals”, “Lucky Strike” and “Sugar”. His music holds so much emotion. I love watching their entertaining VEVO music videos that make me laugh or want to punch something. Maroon 5 started in 1994 as a high school band called Kara’s Flower. After high school, they split up, but in 2001 the band regrouped and were a hit. Currently, the band, with Adam Levine as the head vocalist, has won Grammys, is on the radio and has been number one on the top charts for weeks, and is one of the most popular music groups in North America.

    I think that the White Stripes should be nominated right now. I did some research and I am surprised that they haven’t already been nominated. The White Stripes are one of my favorite bands of all time. Their drummer had no training at all but she relies on talent completely. The guitarist is extremely good but a lot of his songs have really simple tunes. I really like it that way because then I can play too.

    I would nominate the Arctic monkeys. I have seen them in Squamish at their festival on the day of Eminem and so they were second to headliner. they were pretty awesome and I nearly went crowd surfing! Also they are from the south of England unlike my dad who is from the north east. It was pretty cool watching Alex Turner rocking out on stage!
