Absolutely. No. Chance.

Interesting group...can't say I've heard anything by them that I didn't like. Oddly enough, their most recent material is getting airplay on a "smooth jazz" station here in Denver...haven't quite figured out what "smooth jazz" actually is!

Yeah, I think so too!

Here is a collaboration that Art Of Noise did with a Hall Of Fame inductee doing a remake of one of his classics. Duane Eddy had a very distincy guitar style...lot of fun!!

I don't think the band will ever make it, but if producers are considered, then Trevor Horn should get some looks. All that being said, TAON was innovative with the way they used samplers to construct some surprisingly hard-rocking singles. Check out 'Beatbox'.

They might have a chance, but they were almost a novelty act (and I don't mean Dr. Demento type of novelty), so I think that'll hurt their chances.

Definitely an underrated synth act that pioneered some fascinating experiments with sampling and sound collages and even crossed over to the hip-hop arena. God knows Moments in Love has been sampled by enough rappers at this point. I'd induct Kraftwerk, Gary Numan, New Order, Human League, Devo and a few other synth/electronica acts ahead of AON first, but AON would certainly be worthy enough to make it in second or third ballot (Not that I would expect the rockists at the HOF to recognize the enormous innovation and influence of 1970s and 1980s synth/electronic bands, which is one of the many reasons I regard the RRHOF as a colossal joke whose relevance has largely died, as Astrodog has previously indicated in other posts).
