I don't know..."Balls To The Wall" sounds an awful lot like AC/DC. Not that there's anything wrong with that...

I agree with some of the above points and this band did have some level of influence, but something about this band just seemed so bland to me. There was much better Metal out there, and I think they really haven't deserved a look from the Hall.

Maybe. "Balls to the Wall" is timeless.

Accept does have influence in that they played a big role in the transition between the NWOBHM and thrash. But there isn't a single NWOBHM band in yet, so let's not get ahead of ourselves.
