Wow, first post!

Plusses: They're the best-selling all-female group in Japan and have many #1 singles in that country.

Minuses: They're a producer-driven pop act with heavy Menudo-like turnover among the singers. Their management company, Up Front Agency, just "graduated" 14 ex-MM members.

Is thier name supposed to be an anagram for "morning museum"?

"Musume" is Japanese for "daughter" or "girl", so the name means "Morning Daughters" or "Morning Girls".

I don't see it happening. The Rock Hall has never inducted an artist that didn't sing primarily in English, and as a pure J-pop group, they don't have the clout of The Pillows of X-Japan.

Which letter is Springsteen's band named after?
