time will tell....but unless they flame out most likely yes
Posted by Hummer on Wednesday, 04.11.07 @ 16:15pm
They're 2 for 2 in terms of quality albums thus far. I'd expect them to be a lock by the time they get there.

to be honest theyr doesnt look to b alot of competition so despite my better nature: Yes

IF the Rock & Roll hall of fame lasts this long, they will be a shoe-in for first year induction by a gigantic landslide. They will be extremely influential. More so than the Kaiser Cheifs and Bloc Party, the other two big acts from this wave of British guitar groups. If they don't get in, and oh say Panic! at the Disco does, all hope is lost.

1. their music isn't as fantastic as the hype says it is
Posted by liam on Saturday, 10.13.07 @ 16:54pm
Hey Liam, what exactly is the hype on these guys? I do own their debut, and like it fine, but what is all the hoopla about? How are they regarded in the UK?
Posted by Mex on Monday, 12.10.07 @ 13:51pm
You see, Mex, there's this magazine called the NME over here (UK). And like all magazines, it has to sell copies. And the way it does that is by hyping up an artist, and then whacking in a load of merchandise with its copies to do with said artist.
Posted by liam on Monday, 12.10.07 @ 14:00pm
With that logic, the Monkeys'll be sure Hall of Famers, seeing as Oasis will have certainly been in the Hall for years at this point. At least if the gutless swine on the selection committee have handpicked successors with as little class and gumption.
Posted by D on Wednesday, 01.9.08 @ 04:35am
I'd say Oasis will probably get in eventually, not because of their large influence on UK music (which they do have), but because they're one of the most recent british groups to make a mark in the USA.
Posted by liam on Wednesday, 01.9.08 @ 07:42am
Too early to call...they will need 2 more albums before a good opinion is made.

Hell NO!!! NO NO NO!

Thanks for input CJ. Now can you please redirect yourself to the Arctic Monkeys fan page.
Posted by Keebord on Friday, 06.12.09 @ 18:01pm
K, I don't know what in the world CJ was going on about.. but, I do believe the Arctic Monkeys will get in. I'm not saying they deserve it yet, but with "Whatever People say I am" and "Favorite Worst Nightmare", they definitely showed potential. And their new record, "Humbug", shows a change in sound, meaning that they are open to many different styles. Putting them in and not "The Strokes" would be a sin, but who knows? Perhaps Arctic Monkeys will soar above and beyond them. And I certainly believe they show great potential.
Posted by Calzone on Tuesday, 08.25.09 @ 16:23pm
I definitely think they will prove to be consistently great. And they will deserve to get in.
Posted by A Girl on Tuesday, 02.2.10 @ 15:49pm
I voted! :)
Posted by Lesley Jackson on Friday, 07.2.10 @ 15:37pm
they are definitely a band which is growing, becoming better, and musically more innovative and diverse. i have a good feeling about their future.
Posted by Dawson Low on Monday, 08.9.10 @ 17:36pm
Not even close to worthy right now, but they are a pretty good band, and better than most of what's topping the UK charts right now. Any time you can stand out from the rest of the indie crowd you deserve some credit. They'll need some legitimate Stateside success in order to have a proper chance, however, as well as making some "head-and-shoulders above the rest" kind of music.
Posted by Sam on Sunday, 11.28.10 @ 08:06am
I stand by the "pretty good" comment. Fantastic debut, but their recent one didn't do anything for me... kind of reminiscent of where Oasis went wrong. I'll look into what happened in between, but the answer really depends on what happens from here on out. Cracking America would help, as aside from a crossover single or two they haven't really done much there.
Posted by Sam on Monday, 07.18.11 @ 14:49pm
Well, it's been 5 years, and 4 albums, and this supposedly great band is now jerking the curtain for mediocrity like the Black Keys.
Posted by Joe C on Friday, 01.13.12 @ 10:02am
I haven't paid attention to the Arctic Monkeys' recent stuff much so I can't comment on its quality, but the Black Keys are hardly on the road to mediocrity.

'Tis a shame.

Worse than patd!

You know, just because you personally think their newer work isn't good, doesn't mean they don't have a a chance getting into the Hall. Their recent album is their most successful yet and their increased fan base because of that they've been their most influential at this point. Their fanbase has increased a ton cause of the new album, meaning they will likely continue to sell cause of their recent popularity. And just because they have a more mainstream rock sound now, doesn't make them an awful band. That's something pretentious hipsters say. Popularity and more mainstream attention doesn't make them bad. I still think they have and still will have a cance!
Posted by Aaron Wolf on Saturday, 05.24.14 @ 19:39pm
I agree. The move to a more rock-based sound has worked fairly well for them. It placed them on the radar of commercial radio (for whatever that's worth these days) & has guaranteed that a few more people have heard them. Had they stayed the way they were a decade ago, they'd be nowhere right now.
Posted by Cheesecrop on Sunday, 05.25.14 @ 06:21am
In fact, now that I look at what's been inducted into the Song/Album Project, it's a shame that the song "Crying Lightning" hasn't been considered. It's where they made their first real break from the dance sound.
Posted by Cheesecrop on Sunday, 05.25.14 @ 06:23am
... Dance sound?
Posted by GFW on Sunday, 05.25.14 @ 14:10pm
saw this band at Bonnaroo. They were the last act to play on main stage before Elton. Massive crowd for them and I thought they rose to the occasion. Will probably be seeing them a couple of more times before 'Festival Season' is over.
Posted by Paul in KY on Friday, 06.20.14 @ 14:42pm
In the entire 8-year period past Kanye West and Arcade Fire, I would argue this is the one band that has a decent chance. Sorry Vampire Weekend, you still have quite a battle. Arctic Monkeys just needs one more album that has both high quality and high mainstream appeal and they will probably be inducted 16-20 years from now.
