Liam Gallagher responded with a one-line message on X to the news that he Oasis were selected for the 2024 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
“Fuck the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame, it’s full of BUMBACLARTS LG x,” the singer wrote on the social network, clarifying his feelings on the matter. (“Bumbaclart” is a derogatory Jamaican term meaning toilet paper). In subsequent posts Liam invites fans not to “bother” voting for them for certain nonsense
Oasis were recently nominated (read here) along with Mary J. Blige, Mariah Carey, Cher, Dave Matthews Band, Eric B. & Rakim, Foreigner, Peter Frampton, Jane’s Addiction, Kool & the Gang, Lenny Kravitz, Sinead O’Connor, Ozzy Osbourne, Sade and A Tribe Called Quest.
Public voting is now open and fans can vote for up to seven artists once a day every day until April 26th, the date after which the names of those included in the prestigious “rock Olympus” will be announced. Fan voting does not guarantee induction and counts only as the votes of an individual Rock Hall member.
Not all nominees reacted like Liam Gallagher. Indeed, many were happy to be on this list.
“I am deeply honored to receive this news from the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame,” he said Ozzy Osbourne. “Being one of the few musicians considered for a second entry, now as a solo artist, is something I could never have imagined. After 44 years as a solo artist, the fact that I can continue to record music and receive this recognition is something I am incredibly proud of.”
Peter Frampton again via the former Twitter noted: “I’m thrilled to be nominated for induction. … Now that I am nominated, I will ask you for a huge favor. Please vote for me (a lot)… and let’s do this!”
The leader of Foreign Mick Jones told Billboard: “I deeply appreciate the recognition. … It’s wonderful that Foreigner has maintained their presence all these years and brought the music to our fans. Receiving this news is an incredible confirmation of what we have achieved over time.”
