I can't Believe there is No Promoting Fans to vote here. The CURE  is currently in 4th place having been Passed by Ted Nugent last week and are now being threatened by The Zombies (a band I also like). C'mon CURE fans you can Vote once a day...

Quite frankly: I never considered the Cure a "rock'n'roll band" - there are only a few songs which might be described as "rock" or "alternative rock" or whatever...

Additionally I do consider this whole "Rock & Roll Hall of Fame" a bit of a joke. (When you look at which bands were in and which were not at some points in time!)

I'm pretty sure: on the one hand Robert would be pleased if they'd "get in", but on the other hand he doesn't really care about such things, as this is more about "the music business" than anything else...
but memory's not life... and it's not love.

I don't think Robert cares too much. After all, he said this about The Cure:

We’ve never been a fashionable band, and we never will be.

Being part of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame does not make them greater than they already are. The Cure's music is not a popularity contest.

Having said that, I already voted and might vote again :)

I really admire Janet Jackson and Kraftwerk, but putting The Cure in the same pot
is quite unbelievable. It seems as if all "baby-boomers" voted for Stevie Nicks and Def
Leppard. Sorry folks, not my business.

It's a popularity contest. Why must we box people in and choose?

... for Stevie Nicks and Def Leppard.

These are exactly the kind of "bands" which I think fit the R&R HoF quite well!  :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

That's true. All of them deserve actually a price for their work and not a place in a "Hall of Fame".
I only have to look at LL Cool J and Rage Against The Machine and I know: they deserve it.
So many artists have already left us - forever. That's why a vote itself is almost impossible.

The Cure is catching up! It feels like a sport now. Go team Cure! Ha ha. Actually, I didn't know we could vote once a day every day. I just cast mine again today. If enough Cure people catch on, they'll win like that.

Second ballot. This time I voted for five artists including The Cure. It looks good so far.
