There are certain things that even the wildest rockers are supposed to respect, and Axl Rose's decision to snub induction of his band Guns N' Roses into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame was a definite breach of etiquette.

It was Billie Joe Armstrong and Green Day's assignment to handle the Guns N' Roses induction at Saturday night's ceremony.

Band members Slash, Duff McKagan, Steven Adler and Matt Sorum all took the stage.

Armstrong then asked, 'Who's missing?" and the audience of 7,000 booed loudly.

As RadarOnline.com reported, Rose announced last week that he was "respectfully" declining the Hall of Fame's invitation.  He felt he wasn't wanted or "respected."

Armstrong, however, still wanted to give Rose his due.

After quieting the audience, he said, "Most singers are crazy. He is one of the best front men to ever touch a microphone."
