No question Scandal should be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Patty Smyth is one of the best of the best singers. Every song was a hit. They've made some of the best rock songs ever and should not be overlooked.

I've never heard of this "Scandal" group. So I'm in no position to say yes or no.

They had a hit (the only prominent one I can think of) in the early 80's called "Goodbye To You"...ring a bell?

They also had a top 10 hit with "The Warrior" back in 1984 plus 3 more minor hits also.

Brian...I totally forgot about "The Warrior", which wasn't a bad song. Didn't Patti Smyth marry John McEnroe?

Posted by Gitarzan on Thursday, 03.12.09 @ 20:40pm are rigth she did marry John McEnroe. they were an OK band I guess, not hall of fame worthy like Andy thinks though.

There are a lot of those "OK bands" out there, eh Brian...LOL

They are ok but this is a joke to consider this group what influence have they had? Goodbye to you and the Warrior! Monkees stand a better chance than this group.

Scandal itself wasn't around for very long, just a couple of years, until reuniting and touring again recently. Patty's done a lot more and her voice is so great and distinctive that she should be inducted. Some current singers seem to have been influenced at least a little. Martina McBride even covers The Warrior in concert.

Goodbye to You * Love's Got a Line on You * Beat of a Heart * Hands Tied * The Warrior

Scandal didn't enjoy a long enough career to really merit induction into any kind of hall of fame. However, I will say that Patty Smyth has one hell of a voice that rivals Pat Benatar's for raw power and emotion. Patty is one my favorite vocalists. If there a music hall of fame that solely used vocals as criteria, then Patty Smyth would be a no-brainer. I love her voice!
