Barry McGuire will remain uninducted largely for the same reasons as other one-hit wonders (i.e., The Archies, Terry Jacks, Zager and Evans, Bobby "Boris" Pickett, Rupert Holmes): minimal commercial success, zero influence/innovation, and all-around mediocrity. Mind you, I like The Monster Mash, but I would hardly call Bobby Pickett a great artist.

If it weren't for him there probably would be no Mamas and the Papas (who ARE in the HOF).
