Justine Frischmann = Hot.

I find Elastica interesting in that they seem to have pre-dated the post-punk revival by around five years (Connection is a rip-off of Three Girl Rumba) without being noticed. Not sure they deserve induction, but you could do much worse as far as britpop goes.

They were noticed in the UK, as their debut became the fastest-selling debut in British history (beating out Definitely Maybe, for perspective.) I've tried their debut album several times, and though I think there's some solid moments in there (mostly in the second half, like "Blue" and "Stutter") I just can't fully get into it. I find it good, but not earth-shattering. I don't consider them Hall worthy, but I'll be surprised if they're even considered, so it's irrelevant either way. Still, you could do much worse as far as punk and alt-rock are concerned.

Seriously? They don't have a chance. At all.
