Classic rock is rock that is “classic”
Devo is most definitely classic rock.
Nominated for R&R Hall if fame.
Agreed that classic rock is rock that is classic, but I've always felt Devo was better classified as belonging to the New Wave genre, and definitely New Wave that is classic.

And as mentioned above, the R&R HOF has serious credibility issues, not limited to those mentioned above. I think they are wise to want to include Devo, Devo's contribution to music is worthy of recognition, but shouldn't, imo, be filed under "rock".

However, I have no problem with anyone holding a different view. We can probably agree that categorizing music isn't always easy, and "rock" is definitely a very broad category (imo, way too broad).

You've got to be kidding.

As far as R&R HOF, that has been a travesty in so many ways.
