What? No comments for Mike Watt and Co. yet? Well Let my ringing endorsement for their induction be the first.

Why aren't these guys in yet? Sure they're a little on the obscure side, but Double NIckels is one of the most influential and acclaimed alternative/punk albums of all time. On top of that, D. Boon made the Rolling Stone's list of top 100 guitarists and Mike Watt is undeniably one of rock's most influential bassists.

In the span of only five years they released five albums and six EPs and they were constantly on tour. If that's not dedication to music, I don't know what is.

If by some miraculous event they get inducted, I'm predicting it's gonna be George and Mike playing together, doing a guitar-less arrangement of some Minutemen songs like they sometimes do.

Which letter is Springsteen's band named after?
