The Good: De La Rocha gave a really good speech introducing Patti Smith. Who's Zach De La Rocha? He was in this band called Rage Against the Machine. Smith then gave the best acceptance speech of the night and proceeded to rock out three great songs.
Eddie Vedder's speech for R.E.M. was funny, endearing and long, but would you rather listen to Vedder speak (which he doesn't do much anywhere but the Hall of Fame it seems) or watch more montages of old performances?
