You know, I'm not going to make case for or against this band, because I don't know much about them, but they pretty much butchered We Hate It When Out Friends Become Successful for me.

They are one of the most influential ska bands of the 90's, and unlike most of their contemporaries, they are still out producing selling records. However, if the RRHoF ever takes in a ska band, it will be one with a more pop less instrumental sound like Sublime or No Doubt

I absolutely cannot understand how BOSTON hasn't been nominated into the Hall. The biggest selling debut album of all time and an album that received diamond status is being overlooked.

Some of these bands, I've never even heard of.

or the Specials or Madness, although their chances are probably a bit slim. No Doubt and Sublime have a better chance

So what? Are you implying that just because you personally never heard of them they shouldn't be considered? Did it ever occur to you that maybe you're just ignorant? I hate it when people come up with this sort of reasoning, Reel Big Fish shouldn't be considered because they were a 3rd wave ska band who were behind the importance of their contemporaries like No Doubt and Sublime, NOT because "Melissa Majors" has never heard of them!!

Security Question:

Which letter is Springsteen's band named after?
