Huge influence on Metallica, making the albums that Metallica always wanted to make.

They were the big name during the early eighties hardcore scene, and eventually became a big name during the late eighties crossover scene.

COC just haven't crossed over enough to make them a viable candidate for the Rock Hall.

Comment # 4 should be taken with a grain of salt. The poster is an EMO lover.

COC should be inducted in the hall of fame solely based on the originallity and influence on the entire underground music scene in the mid 80s. They were what metal-hardcore-crossover was all about. Their roots in the Raleigh, NC hardcore scene of the early 80's brought an incredible doss of energy and aggression to their quickly developing metallic sounds. The results were very intense and influential. COC influenced damn near every thrash metal and politically minded hardcore band in the mid and late 80's.

While the "Animosity" LP is sometimes criticized for being "a little sloppy" or having "vocals that sounded like they were phoned in," no one can deny it's influence on the music to come in the late 80's and even now. It continues to inspire me both musically and lyrically to this day.

The only thing I see ruining the chances is the change in style over the year. I know several will disagree, and I have no problem with that... I find the later stuff to be lackluster.

COC is a great band but I don't think they will ever make the HOF . I Mean the morons that run the place didn't even put Black Sabbath on the ballot the first 4 years they were eligible and when they did it took them 8 years to finally induct them

"Corrosion of conformity" sounds like someone needs to stop reading the thesaurus for entertainment

Getting tired of typing the same thing. Is there a HEAVY METAL Hall of Fame yet?

No, nor is there a need for one. If the RRHOF were doing their job most of the worthy metal bands would already be in there (see Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, etc, etc)
