make that two.

Influence: Fatboy SLim is probably among the biggest influences on the big beat scene, but that's not that big. 20%
Innovation: he, and The Chemical brothers, invented Big beat. 20%
Critical Respect: Fatboy slim's albums have been received pretty damn well by most critics. 20%
Commercial Sucess: You've Come Along Way, Baby has been certified platinum, add that to his other album sales and that's pretty good. 205%

36 percent? In what extra-dimensional universe does that make sense?

I mean, I liked the one song in the Digimon movie, but beyond that, he's just another late 90s relic who's remembered slightly better among British audiences but who wouldn't stand a chance of being inducted into a British Music Hall of Fame even if such a thing existed.

It did exist, but it fell dormant in 2008 I think. it didn't just induct british acts either, i remember them putting Prince in.

Anybody, and I mean fricken ANYBODY who gets Christopher Walken into their shoot is great. But, to make him dance and fly around; GODLIKE.

Seriously now, Fatboy Slim, most definitely deserves at least a shot at the HoF. That's a no brainer. For as many hits as this guy's got, greatness deserves recognition.
