Put Spinal Tap in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame! sign now

To: Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation, and SPINAL TAP FANS:
It is time for Spinal Tap to make history and join the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame. Artists become eligible for induction 25 years after the release of their first record. Criteria include the influence and significance of the artists contributions to the development and perpetuation of rock and roll. For questions about the induction process, write to the following postal address (the Foundation does not have an e-mail address):

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation
1290 Avenue of the Americas
New York, NY 10104

PLEASE NOTE: The Museum does not handle the Hall of Fame induction process; the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation does that. The Museum simply houses the permanent Hall of Fame exhibit.
We, the undersigned, as fans of great rock and roll music, call for the induction of Spinal Tap as well as the motion picture "This Is Spinal Tap" into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. This is a very unique suggestion but one that would not only be historical, but well deserved. When "This Is Spinal Tap" debuted in 1984, the way we looked at Rock and Roll changed forever. Yes, Spinal Tap is "technically" a fictional character and not a "real band." Spinal Tap, in support of the movie, has indeed gained a following that was never expected. The band has toured, has recorded material outside of the movie soundtrack, and most recently, surprised the old and new legions of fans by participating in the Live Earth benefit concerts. Why is this a good idea? The Rock Hall is a part of history. Some of the "greatest, most influential artists," memorabila, and stories are housed within its walls. "Spinal Tap" IS Rock and Roll. The movie parodied how serious many artists in the genre take themselves and reminds us that Rock and Roll itself was not created to be "serious" or "big business." Rock and Roll IS REBELLION. Rock and Roll IS THE REVOLUTION. Rock and Roll IS THINKING OUTSIDE OF THE BOX. Rock and Roll is a living, breathing, foot stomping, hormone driving, butt kicking rebel that wants to scream its filth and fury to anyone that is listening. Rock and Roll will always be a parody of itself because beyond all things, Rock and Roll IS CONFUSED. The Sex Pistols said it best "Don't know what I want but I know how to get it" Rock and Roll is anarchy. Chaos, confusuion, comedy. Rock and Roll is flamboyant and fun. Rock and Roll is dangerous, different, and disastrous. There is an A-Z list of adjectives to describe what Rock and Roll is. What Rock and Roll is not is a big building full of memories that will not acknowledge that it's contents are for ENTERTAINMENT. What's the difference between U2 and KISS? Why can both sell a gazillion records and adored by their fans but ony one be taken seriously? It makes ZERO sense. Seriously, let's quit taking it all so seriously. The only way to truly appreciate the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is to "put the ALL back in the HALL." It should be for everyone. Let's open the doors in a whole new way. Let's get Spinal Tap and "This Is Spinal Tap" into the Hall. THEN... let's make sure they hold the door open. IT'S ALL CRAP, WITHOUT THE TAP!
