Chrissie Hynde, lead singer of The Pretenders, has criticized the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame as “total bollocks” and asserted that she doesn’t want to be associated with the institution. Hynde’s comments came shortly after Hole vocalist Courtney Love launched a conversation about inclusion on the hall’s roster of inductees. Love called for more female and Black acts to be included, pointing out that few such artists have previously been inducted. In an article for The Guardian, Love elaborated on her concerns about the hall’s lack of diversity, while also acknowledging that this year’s nominations list featured more women than ever before.
