they probably won't make it even thogh they deserve it more than a lot of bands that will i.e. Bon Jovi

Their name alone would probably prevent them from induction, if only because the news media wouldn't want to cover anything honoring a band that would produce any negative feedback from anyone who hadn't heard of them. I remember when Madonna was new; many thought her name was a religious sacrilege (even though it's her REAL name), and perhaps she should go into, say, homemaking. Madonna's name (and its implications) is relatively tame compared to the Butthole Surfers.

Bearing in mind that without these guys there probably wouldn't have been a Nirvana (a band that completley turned music on its head in the early 90s), they thoroughly deserve to get in on their influence on the development of alternative rock as a genre.

The Butthole Surfers were one of the key bands that helped to expand post-punk into alternative rock. They made the 1980s independent scene a lot scarier, and future bands were definitely inspired in the process. They should ideally make it, but since Black Flag can't even get their due, there clearly is no justice in the world.

KEEP BON JOVI OUT HE SUCKS

No

If the Butthole Surfers ever wanted to be taken seriously, then they wouldn't have called themselves "Butthole Surfers" possibly the worst band name of all time.

If I see in u real life, u get your ass kicked. DEATH AND SLAYER ARE F###IN BEST METAL BANDS EVER!

Posted by SLAYER666 on Friday, 12.19.08 @ 17:53pm


SLAYER666...something tells me the only "fighting" you'd be good at is sticking your head up your own can and fighting for air!!! People who go looking for trouble usually find more than they want. I'll just write you off as just another "cyber-punk"...all blow & no show...

Posted by Gitarzan on Friday, 12.19.08 @ 18:35pm


I didn't say anything about their music, I said their name sucks. As for their music, that sucks too. The only metal I like is Danzig.

Posted by Glove on Friday, 12.19.08 @ 19:05pm


U should die assholes! SLAYER DEATH POSSESED ARE THE BEST BANDS EVER!

Posted by SATANA666 on Friday, 12.19.08 @ 21:12pm


I bet Slayer666 and Satana666 are the same person. Talk about violating the "no personal attacks policy."

Would you happen to be related to St. Jimmy by any chance?

Posted by Keebord on Saturday, 12.20.08 @ 10:57am


I really don't like the Butthole Surfers alot. I like bands in the GN'R stage like Montley Crue, Twisted Sister, Nine Inch Nails, and Janes Addiction. I don't really like the butthole surfers that much though.

I still can't understand why any band that would want to be taken seriously would call themselves "the Butthole Surfers"

Posted by Keebord on Monday, 07.6.09 @ 15:00pm


They most likely want to be seen as a novelty act.

Posted by Dude Man on Monday, 07.6.09 @ 15:25pm


I'd love to see them perform at the Hall - they'd burn the place down! Literally!

Posted by foxwell on Tuesday, 05.25.10 @ 18:14pm


Well they innovated the late 80's underground alternative rock scene. Infleunced quite a few bands. But their name will keep them out for sure. A name like Butthole Surfers probably means they didn't really want be taken seriously.

Posted by lame on Tuesday, 05.25.10 @ 19:09pm


the might butthole's must seriously be considered.

A great driving force that saved punk from conformity and blandness. Truly was the scariest show around in the heyday.

I doubt the butthole's are much concerned with the hall, they know their place in history. Send them money instead.

Posted by bingko on Tuesday, 09.28.10 @ 18:06pm


A very important underground rock group if not palatable to many, the Surfers' long career and uniqueness makes them a band with at least respectable credentials even if it's not clear that they really do deserve to be discussed as they have not.

The fact that they had a novelty his single in the 1990s may not even help them get a chance since they may be misunderstood. I was looking at the Surfers when they became eligible, but perhaps they really have no shot.
