Diamond Head were one of the more influencial groups of the NWoBHM. Albeit they never really crossed over in America like some of the other NWoBHM acts(Def Leppard, Iron Maiden, Motorhead, etc.) bands like Metallica and Megadeth have admitted being influenced by them. I'm not sure if anything they have done is deserving of induction, but they do have an influence factor like I said.

They SHOULD if they influenced and inspired the members of bands like MetallicA and Megadeth to even FORM!

Although I have only listened to their first album, which is amazing, I have heard that their 2nd and 3rd album were awful. They have influenced large bands like Metallica and Megdeth. It could go either way for me.
