A great band that was on the cusp of greatness until the untimely death of Andrew Wood. The band was a big influence on other Seattle bands and was the prelude to the great Pearl Jam.

Certainly had potential and the album will receive more notice when Pearl Jam is inducted.

Here's one that will definitely be overlooked, and I'm not exactly sure how I feel about it.

On one hand, a good bit of their sound is just a continuation of what Malfunkshun and Green River had already done, but on the other hand, the portion that lived on in Pearl Jam can still be felt today, albeit in much less talented groups.

I think I'd rather see Malfunkshun and/or Green River inducted.

Never heard of them.

Ignorance isn't an excuse, jackass. There's absolutely loads that you've never heard of.

Why the hell would they join here? Their singer is dead!

I love this band, but they will never get in. In case you care, Jeff Ament and Stone Gossard will get in a few years later.

If tragedy had not struck, this band would be first-ballot, and Andrew Wood would have ruled the '90s, and possibly beyond. God Bless his memory.

One of my favorite bands, each member is gifted with every aspect of talent. As much as I wish they would get inducted - they are not "famous" enough for people to care.

Security Question:

Which letter is Springsteen's band named after?
