Unless the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame can find a way to be more inclusive, it can “go to hell in a handbag,” according to rocker Courtney Love.

The Hall has a real economic impact on its chosen artists, Love claimed in a blistering op-ed in The Guardian.

While Love acknowledged that this year included more women nominees than ever before, the Hall still made such icons as Kate Bush cool their heels, waiting for a chance.

According to the music historian Evelyn McDonnell, the Rock Hall voters, among them musicians and industry elites, are 90% male.”

“The Beastie Boys were inducted in 2012 ahead of most of the Black hip-hop artists they learned to rhyme from,” Love noted.

“These opportunities are life-changing – the difference between touring secondary-market casinos opening for a second-rate comedian, or headlining respected festivals,” Love wrote.
