Massive Attack are THE progenitors of trip-hop, a genre that is EVERYWHRE today. They cannot be ignored.

A ''shitface'' is what you are indeed.

Yep. I'm not sure how big trip-hop is, but they did start in, are a great band, and there are certainly worse picks. I say yes.

Start "it." Sorry.

Oh my god no. They were awful.

Nope. They were great. Blue Lines and Mezzanine are classics.

I personally hate Massive Attack but they did help innovate trip-hop. Maybe they'll get in eventually.

Actually Mezzaninne and Protection are good albums, but the rest of their albums aren't that good. I prefer the Prodigy by about a mile.

Also great, but apples and oranges really.

WERE great? They're still around, actually. I hope they get in, but we've seen the Hall's attitude to important bands who had little to no US success. Probably won't get in first-ballot, but hopefully soon after they'll sneak in.

Influence: They pretty much created Trip Hop.

Hey GFW, do you want to update that post with numbers? I'd do it but since you already started it.. (I want to see what score you give them)

Actually, since you probably know more I'll let you.
Posted by GFW on Saturday, 12.3.11 @ 15:52pm
Alright GFW, I'm on it:
