Does Bon Jovi deserve induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame?

Bon Jovi leads the 2018 class of inductees into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, but not everyone is happy about it. The New Jersey natives are certainly beloved. They won the Rock Hall’s fan poll, receiving more than a million public votes. But critics have always derided them as silly pop hair metal, and music aficionados say they have no business standing alongside legends like Nina Simone and Sister Rosetta Tharpe. Does Bon Jovi belong in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame? 🎸 🎸 🎸

Fans say let the music snobs sneer. Bon Jovi wrote fist-pumping pop anthems that were adored by millions. Rock 'n roll is supposed to be a good time!

Their blending of arena-rock largesse, pyrotechnic riffing and good-time vibes–not to mention the occasional weepy ballad– ed to some of the most pleasure-inducing rock hits of the Eighties and Nineties.

Many think Nina Simone should not have to share any kind of space with Richie Zambora.
