They've probably had 40 hits and at least 10 top 10s which is a plausible argument on top of the fact that they were influential.

Actually, they had 3 top ten hits in the U.S. and 10 in the U.K., and I don't know that they were or are all that influential.

They had a lot more than one hit and they epitomize their era and they are kinda cute. They also weren't very good singers-- but there are worse bands in the Hall.

Whether or not they were influential is up in the air, but they did have a string of hits in their home country and a few in the US (which makes them more than a one hit wonder), and they actually have a Guinness World Record as the all-female group who have the most chart entries in history. One influence that is often not noted is theirs on Madonna. You can Youtube their early videos, and you can clearly see from where Madonna got her style.

They should just get in for that "Cruel Summer" song alone... I have gotten so high so many times listening to that song over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again
