I'll fully admit that Saxon is not well-known in America outside of their niche, which is where the HOF generally focuses, but the committee should consider how influential they were to many great musicians. Metallica et al. have sampled portions of their guitar riffs in their songs over the year, and have credited Paul Quinn and Graham Oliver for inspiration.
