First ballot, but then again, the committee might not be cool enough to include them.

This is a hard one. Their second album "You're Living All Over Me" was like an atomic bomb when it hit college radio. It's hard to even imagine underground music without them.

Maybe my ears just aren't fans of this style of musicianship. I was ready to like this band, because I've read such praise. Went and got "You're Living All Over Me" and opened up my musical mind to soak it in. But I fucking hate it.

just to let you know shawn mc, starting with "You're Living All Over Me" wasnt a good idea. its a hell of a lot noisier than their later output, especially their most recent effort. You should give some of their major label albums a try, or even better, their newest, Beyond.

Thanks for the insight dino; I will check out their latest and give them another listen.

They have a chance, becasue 2010 is short on big name stars and is full of the more underground type.

If its "Anon/Micheal", go away.

In a perfect world, they will be. However the R&RHOF doesn't work like that, does it now?

Dinosaur Jr. is a remarkable group and their influence on the "American Underground" music scene in the late 80's/early 90's was massive. "You're Living All Over Me" is their masterpiece, but I also suggest "Bug" (YLAOM's follow up) and especially their 2007 post-reunion album "Beyond" for more melodic fare.

I don't know. I just can't live with myself if a group called "Dinosaur Jr." gets inducted.
Posted by Stewie on Saturday, 06.20.09 @ 17:49pm
they HAVE to get in, they're still making amazing music.

A great band, truly influential and quoted as Corbain's favorite. Sadly, I don't see them getting in until someone finally remembers these guys and Sonic Youth.

I agree Breaker.

Dinosaur Jr. is the greatest rock ever and should be inductued into the Rock n Roll HOF. They still are making great rocking music. Very creative band and very influential.
Posted by djr on Tuesday, 12.7.10 @ 18:09pm
Creative and influential? Yes.
Posted by Chalkie on Tuesday, 12.7.10 @ 19:25pm
'You're Living All Over Me' should easily have been elected in the Album Project by now.

Don't think Dinosaur Jr. will be inducted. Thought they were overrated. Went to see them at a Festival type shows early 90's time frame. Disappointed. Lots of noise and vocals underwhelming. Groups like Def Leppard, Scorpions, Bryan Adams, The Cure, Grant Lee Buffalo, STP more deserving. My two cents. KING
