Yes, yes, yes.

But not before The Specials, mind you.

Sorry, Liam, but I'm afraid that's not gonna happen.

No Doubt will probably be inducted way before they even start considering The Specials or Madness.

I agree with denyo, Ska music is so unappreciated.

I'd love to see the Specials and Madness get in but it's unlikely it'll happen anytime soon.

"Madness, madness
They call it madness
Madness, madness
They call it madness
It is plain to see
That is what they mean to me
Madness, madness
I call it gladness"
-Prince Buster, "Madness" (1963)

I find it intersting that immediately after visiting the Coven page, I was directed to the page for Madness.

Lacking a Prince Buster page, I'll post this here, with a band named after one of his songs. Peaceful journeys and a million thanks.

Security Question:

Which letter is Springsteen's band named after?
