Are you fucking kidding me such a great band that should have a way higher chance of being inducted. Definitley an influence on alot of newer ska,punk, and alternative rock nowadays.

Yet another case of a very deserving act being overlooked simply because it isn't a household name in the US. The Hall needs to get its act together and inducted them.

The English Beat - I vote yes.

Not before The Specials!

I like them better than the Specials, therefore, I vote the English Beat first, even if the Specials formed 6 - 9 months earlier.

Hypersensitive? As far as importance goes, The Specials get in first, what with them being THE band to fuse ska and punk.

I don't care - leave me my likes and dislikes alone! I am an old man and I have earned that choice. Besides, I am still hurting over the Def Leppard fiasco.

How come Madness STILL don't have a page?

There are similarities between Dave Wakeling's voice and Pete Townshend's voice, hence Pete's cover of The English Beat's "Save It For Later"

English Beat members would go on to form General Public and Fine Young Cannibals. General Public page coming soon to Future Rock Legends.

No General Public yet!

Looks like I was mistaken, there is a page for the Beat on here after all!
