Hall and Oates has my vote!

Did you know Hall and Oates, one of the biggest pop rock duos in history has not yet been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame???   That’s why we want you to leave me a comment here and this will act as our petition to get these guys into the Hall of Fame.  We’ll gather all of your kind words, and send this off to show just how much we support these guys.

So tell us why you love Hall and Oates and why you think they should join the likes of other excellent rockers.  You can leave comments or even just your name if you don’t have much time.  It all counts!

p.s. tune in for their performance on November 9th on the Rachael Ray show!  Watch the backastage video today!

  2. Gabriel Neu says:

    They need to get in NOW! Style, talent, muscianship, sales what else do they need to do?!?

  3. Quincy Jones says:

    I’ve had the honor of working with many talented artists through out my career that have made it to the RHF, there is no question these gentlemen deserve to be right there with the best of them for 3 main reasons:

    talented,original,everlasting

    a fan,

    My husband and I flew all the way from Oklahoma to Saratoga, CA in 2009, to one of Hall & Oates concerts. We believe these guys are classic and their rock & roll will live on forever! Our kids love their music too. Yes, they are totally deserving.

  5. Hall and Oats happens to be one of the duos that when one of their songs comes on the radio, no matter how old you are, you turn up the radio and sing along. Also, if you get to work or home and the song has not finished you stay in your car until it is over. I listened so much when my kids were young, they are now fans. I actually saw you live one time in Tampa, FL and it was a GREAT Show. Everyone there really enjoyed the songs and we felt you had written the song for us or about us. I really like to listen to the words as much as the music. There is always a story intertwined with emotion. You really fell the soul in each song. Hall of Fame get on the ball! They are part of music history.

    I was shocked and even appalled to see that Hall & Oates have yet to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame…This should be done….SOON!!!!

  8. Julie Johnson says:

    Hall & Oates have crossed geological borders with their music. You can go to the ends of the earth and people of every culture and color will know who they are. The music they have written are classics the have transcended time. They’ve never faded away since they began in 1976 and continue still to produce such soulful, beautiful melodies such as there latest, “Do It For Love” and generate an energy that audiences continue to engage in. This is why they are the number 1 selling pop duo of all time. They are a world class musicians with world class greatness which is exactly what the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is all about.
    Please, Accept them into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. They are more than deserving. Thank you.

  14. Lee says:

    I cant believe it!

  15. Linda L says:

    John Oates is from My hometown Of North Wales, PA he and Daryl Hall MUST be inducted they are awesome and Love them to DEATH!!!!!!!

  16. njrayray says:

    What the hel1 enough bull crap…the most influential song writers and performers in the last 20 years…..2011 Hallof Fame…end of story…

  17. Gerry Coyle says:

    These guys are just AMAZING musicians & OUTSTANDING song writers. They should have been in the Hall of Fame years ago. You have my vote guys-FANTASTIC:-)

  18. Sammy R says:

    Hall and Oates have a great song “It’s A Laugh”. Well it’s a laugh these guys are not in the HOF. What more can these guys do, or should I say what can’t they do. They do it for the love of the music, so it does’nt matter if they get in or not. Daryl, John and all the other guys, T Bone, know where they stand, and thats on top. Sammy R. (PGH)

    bye

  20. kevin says:

    Wow! the song Wait For Me is truly a great piece of work.the other hits are great also… but if wait for me played today on the radio… no doubt, Hall and Oates fame…HOF

  21. Marilyn says:

    “It’s Uncanny” that the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has failed to recognize the talents of these two wonderful songwriter/singers. Their longevity in the business and sheer number of hit songs more than qualifies their inclusion. Hopefully this oversight/slight will soon be rectified.

  22. andy says:

    agree. thx rachael, keep up the good work

  23. Charles Minnich says:

    Hall & Oates Rocked the 70′s and 8o’s with the most memeorable love songs and ballads I’ve heard and they still jam today. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame needs to recognize them and give them the credit and respect that they have earned. I live just outside of Cleveland and can hardly wait to see their induction. Good Luck Hall and Oates and Thanks for all of the Wonderful music.

  24. Rob says:

    Great songs and performances that will stand the test of times! These guys should have been in the HoF long ago!

  25. Tracy says:

    Can’t believe they are not in there yet!!!

    So talented and can’t think of the 80′s without thier music, Blue-eyed Philly soul! They are great!Have a bunch of thier albums, yes they are actual albums! Love them!
    Get them in there!

  26. MIKE says:

    HADE THE BAND PLAY ‘RICH GIRL’AT OUR RECPTION,30 YEARS AGO………….

  27. Dan says:

    Not having Hall & Oates in the Hall is doing more harm to the Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Fame than anyone… so continue at your own peril musical elites. You have a handful of people only celebrating what they deem “cool”….most people don’t only consider Led Zeppelin to be Rock ‘n Roll….your own criteria for getting into the Hall shows a prejudice when you look who they induct and who is left ignored….If America voted in November H & O would be there come January…enough said.. and Smokey Robinson or Mick Jagger would probably induct them..if the RnRHoF continue on ignoring very successful, influential acts like H & O they will go the way of other institutions that proved they weren’t about what they told us they were about…H & O’s musical will endure like it has been doing anyways without such accolades!

  28. Gayla says:

    The 2011 Nominee’s have been announced and STILL no Hall and Oates. It’s just not RIGHT! Love Hall & Oates. Always have and always will. Can we keep the petition going?

  29. Sherri says:

    Hall and Oates SHOULD be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. They are awesome!

  30. Kura says:

    Their songs give me that ‘summer’ feeling, especially through the hard times. They ROCK!

    A sincere fan from New Zealand!!

  31. Tesha says:

    Hall & Oates have provided us with a catalog of songs and melodies that have influenced generations of artists and fans of music that range from all genres. They remain relevant and mentors of artists of today. They are what true Rock & Roll is about and what it represents – SOUL!

  32. Michael D says:

    I can’t find any place on your site to send a fan mail or comment so I guess I have to do it this way.

    I never knew anything about you and saw your interview on CNN with Howard Kurtz and loved it. You’re so full of life, so positive and such a delightful lady with a warm and beautiful heart! God bless you!

    Daryl Hall and John Oates are music royalty. As a writer, I find it hard to express in words how magnificent Daryl’s voice is and the quality of this duo’s songwriting.

  49. Jill says:

    Daryl Hall & John Oates are most deserving of this recognition; their songbook is the soundtrack to our lives, and the quality of their work speaks for itself. They belong in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame!
