1. Mariah Carey, 3 points (I would hate to see a class with no female inductees. That would never be my sole reason for voting for someone though. I feel the "songbird supreme" has had the biggest impact here. Not to undermine De La Soul.)
2. Dave Matthews Band - Have you seen them live? Jesus.
3. De La Soul - Important and deserving, but it all comes down to personal preference in the end. I would honestly induct Nas as the next rap artist, and after that, solo Dr. Dre.
jtrichey - I would argue that Arctic Monkeys and MGMT have arguments to be made for them. I'd also vote for Portishead before The Chemical Brothers.
This is my first year here. I was introduced to The Song Project and don't really know where to begin on the other projects, but this was one I'm glad I jumped in on. At this point, I'd say the biggest omissions are Chubby Checker, Nas, The Flying Burrito Brothers, No Doubt, Primal Scream, Wilco, The Jesus and Mary Chain, Three Dog Night, Boston, and The Strokes.

|Interesting thought - now that the Love Unlimited Orchestra is in, that means that Ray Parker Jr. (Ghostbusters) and Kenny G. are inductees in our hall.|

|Also very happy with the class. Bill Withers of course (maybe we do have influence on the real Hall as Withers is a first time nominee there too?), but also Three Dog Night, and LCD Soundsystem were among my faves. I do not care at all for Capt Beefheart or that style of music, but I knew it was just a matter of time before he got in.|
With LCD making it in The Chemical Brothers should have a clear path next year. Once again there are no new-comers to next year's eligible that will make a whole lot of noise. Would love to see Sweet start to make some headway.
1. Dave Matthews Band (3 points)
2. Mariah Carey
3. De La Soul (1 point)
but all are worthy.
