Five Hair Metal Heroes Who Should be Inducted Into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

The Beastie Boys, Eric B. & Rakim, Donovan, and the Cure were among 15 artists nominated this morning by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame committee for the class of 2012.

Only five will make it, earning a sacred spot alongside some of the greats. Chances are, Guns N' Roses, will make the cut, meaning we'll have to watch Axl Rose blow himself during the acceptance speech.

Well, fuck that noise. We can think of a bunch of gnarly hair metals heroes more deserving than that d-bag. Check out Crossfade's top five after the jump.

5. Dee Snider of Twisted Sister
We're not gonna take it! The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame needs to get off their ass and induct Dee Snider already. No man will ever wear a perm better than he, and that's a fact.

4. Jani Lane of Warrant
Warrant's "Cherry Pie" is one of the greatest truck stop strip club anthems of all time. It'd be a nice gesture if the Hall posthumously inducted Lane, who was found dead last month at an L.A. motel.

3. Bret Michaels of Poison
Dude can't catch a break in the love department, having spent three seasons on a VH1 reality show trying to find the woman of his dreams. But an induction into the Hall would totally get him the sympathy date.

2. Tom Keifer of Cinderella
Our favorite band growing up was Cinderella. It was also our sister's favorite fairytale. Okay, we're lying. She was a bigger Snow White fan.

1. Sebastian Bach of Skid Row
Alright, like all the dudes we listed, we're joking about this guy too. Sure, it sucks that he lost a lot of shit in a flood recently. But karma's a bitch. Remember that t-shirt he wore about AIDS?

What a douche!  First off I highly doubt Axl would bother to show.  And if this "writer" were ever in the same room as Axl you can guess who'd be doing all the blowing.  Dee Snider should have been in already.  Man has been a force in rock n roll for decades.  Hit songs, testimony to congress, name recognition, frequent television guest and a huge radio show!
