For sure. Definitely The Cramps - they were the first to blend rockabilly with punk!

The RnR Hall of Fame isn't really worth shit but The Cramps should be recognized for how they have brought so much classick music to people who never knew it existed. The Cramps STAY SICK - TURN BLUE!!! Too Bad You're Gonna Die!!!

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame without the Cramps is like the Chicago Cubs without a World Series win...a damn shame. The only difference is the Cubs do not deserve to win while the Cramps walk on water! Lux Interior for President!!!!!

The week Lux passed away they held the Grammy's that weekend, and not ONE artist mentioned anything about his death or The Cramps.

Having seen The CRAMPS no less than twenty times between 1978 and 2004 I offer my two-pronged opinion :

Just in case anyone misunderstood my comment above...

They actually have both the influence and innovation factor down as they are recognized as one of the initial innovators of psychobilly (punk+rockabilly), and are influential to that movement.

The Meteors were also important to the psychobilly movement. Don't see a page on here for them.

i guarantee if Morrissey had a vote these excellent artists would have been in the hall years ago. Songs The Lord Taught us is one of the best records of all time let alone within the punk genre. Definatly worthy of induction althought it likely will never happen.
