Will Ani DiFranco be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame?
"Musical excellence is the essential qualification for induction."

With someone like Patti Smith being inducted, who had next to no commercial success (with the exception of "Because the Night") throughout her entire recording career, it gives me higher hopes for someone like Ani DiFranco to be included. Although, whereas Patti smith had that one hit, Ani still hasn't been able to nab one after nearly 18 years of making albums.

She's eligible in seven years, so we'll see what happens. It's doubtful she'll get in on the first ballot, and she currently isn't getting the recognition she deserves from the general public. However, her influence could be felt in the next decade or so. She's one of the most talented female musicians to come out of the 90's, and she deserves a spot in the rock and roll hall of fame, regardless of her never appealing to the mainstream.

I am a huge fan of ani's earlier work, especially the debut album and not a pretty girl. I would consider these her strongest pieces; her later work hasn't impressed me as much.
