In 2035, One Direction will most likely be just a minor footnote in pop music "history." It's true that the music industry has molded them into a current pop "sensation." But it's not a lasting or successful formula.

To all of you Directioners, here is an order. Listen to every last song by your so-called "favorite" artist. Then listen to every song by every inductee to the hall. Then compare, and then judge

"Then listen to every song by every inductee to the hall."

EVERY single one?

Yes. "EVERY single one". It will help them judge. TEEN GIRLS KNOW NOTHING ABOUT MUSIC!! The JONAS BROTHERS is THE BEATLES TO THEM!!!!!!! If they have that kind of philosophy,then 1D would be Led Zeppelin to them. If you keep that in mind, then they could form their own genre called "TEENYBOP ROCK". But hey, still 1D gets no chance. Unless some girls log onto this site and sneek into voting time for the 2035 rock and roll hall of fame class and they trash the commite and give 1D all the votes. If that happens, rock is dead.

Jonas Brothers are more like the Dave Clark Five, in that no one cares about them anymore.

"If that happens, rock is dead."

If the Hall's status is how you judge the healthiness of a genre of music then I don't know what to say.

ps teenage girls won't have a clue who 1D are in 2035.

Uhhh, they were INDUCTED TO THE HALL IN 2008!!! That gives the JoBros a ticket to the hall in 2049 if you want to look at it that way. The only boy band that should be in the hall is the Backstreet Boys. And not just that. I can think of several reasons that One Direction won't make it

1. They only got famous on looks.
2. They use auto tune
3. You can be gay and yet still be bullied about liking One Direction by other gays
4. Half of the girls in this world don't like them
5. Their only good song is "What Makes You Beautiful"
6. It will be impossible unless one of their members has a superb solo career.

But then again that might give *NSYNC a chance. However most of 1D's qualities aren't what ANY of the inductees have. So all in all HELL TO THE NO!!!!!

They do NOT write music nor produce...or even play any instruments...they have ZERO musical credibility.

They are worst than Britney Spears.

Britney Spears, J-Lo, 1D... thank god we have El_Jesus here to slay these sacred cows!

Unfortunately, if we do get a new person like Jann Wenner, then One Direction might be inducted before Stevie Ray Vaughan. As big of a nightmare that would be, that's what might happen. Because, I realized that when he took so long to induct Rush that he only likes what is most popular at a specific time period. And if we get someone new like Wenner, then I'm sorry, but 1D might be in before SRV

Not before NKOTB or NSync...PLEASE
