Def. should even be considered for ROCK hall of fame - had absolutely zero influence on rock - had nothing to do with rock. No way should boyz II men get inducted. no way.

They broke elvis record why not?You cry babies whining about rock and roll influence face it R&B and Hip-Hop will be inducted.I think that if there were more white R&B and Hip-Hop artist you would cry about it!

They were one of the first groups to do R&B at a hip-hop tone. A lot of people do that today. I might put my vote in for Boyz II Men.

Percentage is a little lower than I would think. I don't think Boyz have much of a shot at consideration- not that it was bad, but there was nothing there that forever shook the world of music or left an incomparable impact.

How can Mariah Carey have a 38% chance of induction and Boyz II Men only have a 5% chance of induction? Mariah Carey was the number 1 charting female artist of the 90s and Boyz II Men were the number 1 charting R&B group of the 90's.

Good group. A few good hits("End of the Road", in particular, deserves an induction in the song project), and very successful. They are notable for being the last male vocal group to make any sort of impact. I personally don't consider them to be a boy band, they weren't marketed as such and their catalog doesn't really jive with the "boy band" thing (End of the Road, Water Runs Dry, I'll Make Love To You and One Sweet Day are not boy band songs). Unfortunately they might've gotten a bit too huge too quickly, as they weren't able to move with the times like R. Kelly, TLC, and Mariah Carey (to name a few) were able to do. As it stands, they haven't done enough to deserve induction, and there's far more notable names from 90s R&B that deserve it.

Boyz II Men's 1991 It's So Hard To Say Goodbye To Yesterday was originally recorded by G.C. Cameron of the Spinners in 1975 for the Cooley High movie soundtrack.

Boyz II Men should be inducted. They broke Elvis record and went on to sell millions. Someone called them a boy band, what's ur point? Isn't Chicago an all male band? If I hear one more person cry and say this is the rock and roll hall of fame and certain music shouldn't be included I am going to scream. It's obvious they support all types of music so shut up already about it. I wouldn't really consider Chicago or the cars rock and roll, but they deserve to be inducted. It seems like anyone African American people have an issue with. Stop ur racial views it's sickening.
