VOTE 2 WIN: ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME OMISSIONS

Hello everyone, welcome to my fourth V2W! I’ve decided to base this one off of the bad omissions of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

I’d like to thank Smasher and MCS for helping me with this V2W.



RULES (please read):

Please include all matches in your post - it gets confusing if you leave a match out.

Don’t overly praise or criticize a contestant, or your vote will be revoked. Comments like “I’m not a big fan of this band/musician” or “I like this band/musician more than the other” are fine.

You’re allowed to change your vote anytime during a match.

And any other normal V2W rules apply too, really.

Just a note from Packy:

Nicolas-1223: I never had the chance to ask you about your V2Ws
Nicolas-1223: I gave you a long time to think
Nicolas-1223: About whether they should be canceled or not
Nicolas-1223: or if you want me and Smusher to reboot them
Nicolas-1223: so what is your decision?
Yaes: eh
Nicolas-1223: ?
Yaes: I'm too busy nowadays to really manage them, so if you two want, you can reboot them if you guys want
Yaes: if you don't want to, then it can be cancelled
Nicolas-1223: well alright
so this, along with TV Shows, is canceled, unless someone wants to reboot it
