ROCKHALL CLASS OF 2016: THE OLD IN (CHEAP TRICK) & OUT (THE CARS)

Discerning rock fans had cause for celebration when it was revealed in December that Cheap Trick had made the final cut in the voting for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame; the voting pundits and tastemakers got this one right. They blew it, however, with The Cars, who’ve been eligible for the last 11 years and were finally nominated for the class of 2016 but were puzzlingly passed over. It would’ve been incredibly cool for both of these great American bands to be onstage at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center tonight for the induction ceremony, because they belong together on so many levels. So says Bud Scoppa in Critics' Choice.
