Green Day to induct GNR ... WHY

Douchy, party of three?
I am absolutely certain that when Billie Joe(l) and Green Day were playing it cool, this induction speech would have been delivered with a mammoth piece of Irony Pie. Now? I'm not so sure. GNR = corporate rock. Green Day = corporate rock. Congratulations to you all!

CLEVELAND (AP) - Green Day will welcome fellow hard rockers Guns N' Roses into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Rock Hall spokesman Todd Mesek said Monday that Green Day members Billie Joe Armstrong, Mike Dirnt and Tre Cool will induct Guns N' Roses at Saturday's ceremony at Cleveland's Public Hall.
Mesek says it's not yet known if the original Guns N' Roses lineup will reunite and perform. Mesek say he believes frontman Axl Rose, guitarist Slash and other band members plan to attend. The group split in 1996.

Guns N' Roses stormed onto the music scene in the mid-1980s, awakening an industry then dominated by pop and dance music.

This year's Hall of Fame class includes the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Beastie Boys, Donovan, Laura Nyro and The Small Faces/The Faces.


  1. what an embarrassing photo - Billie Joe looks like a deranged lunch lady. The drummer looks like a tranny and Mike Drint is starting to look like the drummer from the rolling stones - they both have this 'died and nobody told them' look on their faces all the time (see "Love is Strong" video for my favorite example of this).

    from the neck down, these guys are dressed for business. from the neck up... dudes, it 2012. let it go. your "rock opera" didn't have a plot or any characters.

    1. no wait, it's green day's bass player that looks like the drummer from rolling stone and green day's drummer that looks like a tranny

      in case i'm getting that wrong again, from left to right, we've got: dead guy, lunch lady, tranny

  2. Amazing. Just...amazing. Consider this your invite to join the staff of CDNR.
