ABBA Induction Makes Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Relevant
ABBA matters. Without ABBA, we’d have no Gaga. Without ABBA, the Spice Girls would’ve all ended up working for cheap tips and gross ass-grabs at a dodgy fish-and-chip pub owned by Charlotte Church. Without ABBA, we’d probably even be starving for hipster idols like MGMT or Animal Collective–or at least have ones that didn’t know their way around a dance beat. Hell, without ABBA, we’d live in a world where Meryl Streep was not paid big bucks to sing pop songs with the dedication of a Little Miss Universe. Thankfully, that’s not our world. So, big ups to the the pop group’s induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. To think! ABBA was just a little old band that once performed at Eurovision. But that was back in the ’70s, when Eurovision performers were bad-ass. Nowadays, performers usually wind up being Icelandic inside jokes or last-minute Sugababes replacements.
Anyway, thank you for the music, ABBA.
