Now that we’ve discussed the nominees for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Class Of 2014, it’s time to get into the nitty gritty.

Dr. Gonzo, Big Money, Cunningham and Parr continue their Hall of Fame discussion, with a large part of this episode based around two questions:

-What *is* “rock and roll” music?

-Why does this museum exist in the first place?

This conversation leads us down a few different words, and also leads to one of the team’s more, shall we say, spirited discussions.

Also discussed:

-Is the induction ceremony an actual event? Do people care?

-Which artists have been left off the party list? And are the voters biased against British acts/bands?

-What is the shelf life of the museum? How long after Jann Wenner passes away will the Hall of Fame actually exist?

-Will these two Hall of Fame moments ever be beat? (Prince’s guitar-gasm and Mike Love’s freak out)

Also, this episode finds the team digging deep into recommendations, which include:

Christine Feldman’s book “We Are The Mods” (Gonzo)

Paul McCartney’s “New” (Parr)

Lou Reed’s “Berlin” (Cunningham)

Toad The Wet Sprocket’s “New Constellation” and Questlove’s Soul Train book
