They Had One Damn Hit

Love 'The Bee Song'. That's not enough (by a long stetch) to make the Hall, however.

I will freak if they ever make the Hall.

Hoon was the man, I hate how people call Blind Melon one hit wonders they had many more songs that were way better than 'No Rain'

They had one commercial hit but if you listen to their albums then you would realize that every song they released was great. Blind Melon should be in the Hall of Fame but might not make it due to the lack of extreme commercial success.

Shannon ruled the 90s, so no I don't think they should be inducted.

Blind Melon should absolutely be in the HOF! They are definately the most underrated band of the 90's. Thier music was SO pure and earthy feeling. Shannon Hoon had his problems with drug abuse, but he was a brilliant songwriter and frontman. To say that Blind Melon only had one hit is outrageous! whoever says that does not know good and important music.

It's unfortunate that people associate blind melon with no rain. Its a decent song and all but in no way does it stand up to their other songs. Take some time and listen and you'll probably realize that this band was 1 or 2 albums away from being in everyone's ear. It's the best music to come out of the 90s, no one's even close. Hoon was one of the biggest musical losses in rock. Unfortunately, the HOF probably won't happen because people can't seem to get past no rain. Give a listen, its one of the last examples of real rock music.

You know, Jimi Hendrix also only had one hit.

RIP, Shannon. 20 years ago today. A kind soul, by all accounts.
