The Box Tops really didn't endure for that long, and by the standards of their day (the late 60's) were fairly average. Their biggest song "The Letter" (Give Me A Ticket For An Airplane...) was #1 for 4 weeks in 1967.

Alex Chilton also played in Big Star

The only reason the Box Tops have a 16% chance is because Alex Chilton was later in Big Star. Box Tops were more successful, Big Star was artsier, well why not just make Chilton a Clyde McPhatter Club member?

I guess not if you base their success simply on the strength of "The Letter" and "Cry Like a Baby" but both of which were huge when they came out. I really don't know the exact criteria that FRL goes through when putting up a certain % for Induction Chances
