The Hall of Fame has become a joke. They discarded the Dave Clark Five in favor of Grandmaster Flash because they felt they "could not go another year without a rap act". The Dave Clark Five got more votes than Grandmaster Flash. Since when is it acceptable to include rap acts?

The Platters hit the scene early on during the rock and roll era at a time when rock and roll was still developing. I actually agree that they could probably not be considered rock and roll if they had hit at any other time, but when songs like Only You and The Great Pretender became popular, what rock and roll was had not been clearly defined. I have always considered The Platters to be soft rock. I say if acts like the Beastie Boys and such are included in the HOF, why not include The Platters?
