yes they deserve to be inducted. Ben Folds proved that you dont need a guitar to rock out

First of all, if you want innovative then just listen to any of the Ben Folds albums. Their songs aren't boring, they don't sound remotely alike, yet they still reamin true to what they've always done, the lyrics don't complain, they aren't depressing, they are witty and smart and it's just all around good music. This band has the talent to turn away from conventional mainstream music and turn it into something that I have yet to hear from any other band out there. I wish more bands were able to stop following trends and make more music like them. Finally, if you can remake one of snoop dogs songs on a flippin piano, what more needs to be said?

Darn good band while they lasted. But they didn't last long enough.

A refreshing group to listen to in the late 90s. Refreshing compared to that smog and haze of grunge that permeated the air during that time.

"B*tches can't hang with the streets" lol. Perhaps the best parody (intentional or not) of Hip-Hop/Rap

Probably my favorite band, but no.
