Sabbath Receives Another Rock Hall Snub

Another year, another snub for Black Sabbath. The newest members of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame were announced -- and once again, the rock metal pioneers didn't make the cut. The Ozzy Osbourne-fronted group has become the Susan Lucci of the music world, seemingly appearing on the ballot every year but never making it up to the podium. Only in Sabbath's case, the losing streak has been by choice. An ongoing war of the words between singer and the Rock Hall voting committee came to a head in 1999, when Osbourne called the voting committee, quote, "the supposed elite of the industry and the media," accusing them of never having, quote, "bought an album or concert ticket in their lives." He then withdrew Black Sabbath from consideration. Offended Rock Hall execs were more than happy to oblige, and the two sides haven't seen eye-to-eye since. Things didn't look good for a 2004 Sabbath induction from the onset, as former Reprise Records president Howie Klein told VH1, quote, "I wish the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame had a special category for people who bite the heads off birds and animals. If they did, I would vote for him." Those who haven't offended Rock Hall voters include the late George Harrison, ZZ Top, Bob Seger, Traffic, Jackson Browne, Prince and The Dells. All will be inducted during a New York-based ceremony in March. (metrosource)
