The nomination for these honours are made by others, and usually they are your peers, only a small percentage are 'time servers' or only getting the honour on a 'Buggins's Turn' basis.
As such it is an honour, and a recognition of your contributions in your field, not a sop handed down by the Grate & Good, like crumbs from a rich man's table.
Think about it logically, the people who approve the nominations have probably never heard Archie sing. Poor deprived souls that they are!
