Don't think one novelty hit counts much for innovation and influence

Those comments above are obviously made by people who know precious little about music.

36% chance of induction? I can understand with bands like MBV, but come on, FRH....

I have a friend who threatens to smash his car radio if "Come On Eileen" is ever played on it!

I am an absolute Dexys fan since 1980, and hope they will go a gig again in the near future, but I can understand "I have a friend who threatens to smash his car radio if "Come On Eileen" is ever played on it!"

Can anyone explain to me how '80s few hit, new wave, wonders Frankie Goes to Hollywood and Dexys Midnight Runners have such high induction chances?

A 37% induction chance for Dexys Midnight Runners is a better joke than anything I could ever hope to come up with.

Dexys Midnight Runners have a 37% chance here?

Seriously?!?! 37 percent induction chances?!?! Wanna fill me in prognosticator because I must be missing something!

"Come On Eileen" is great in my opinion. I'll do some research now to see if they have any I & I... I just checked Google, and the first page isn't bringing up anything. I say no then.

Anyone who thinks they only had one hit or one good song is not qualified to make any comments on this subject matter.

Now those are some suspiciously high induction chances...

Dexys Midnight Runners were a great band and those who think they are one hit one wonders are sadly misguided. Don't Stand Me Down is a masterpiece.

"About all I can think of is that the Eileen they mention in song is now a member of the voting committee.."
