Nice Canadian group out of Vancouver. They take their name from U.S. President James Knox Polk expansionist quote "54-40 or fight!" when he wanted to gain control over a portion of Western Canada in the 19th century. I can't see them ever getting in though, they're just too much of a small band without any lasting legacy

I love this band!!!! but, i had to vote no. Beyond Hootie and the Blowfish covering I Go Blind, they never really made it past their own borders. I think on some level, you have to make it in the largest Rock market (The United States) and if you can't do that, you have a much harder case to gain induction. I do recommend Smilin' Buddha Cabaret as a solid and under appreciated Alternative effort of the early 90's. Even though their earlier efforts still gain airplay in Canada, i always thought this was the album when they were at their best.
