Wow, 25% yes and 25% induction chance. The Flamin Groovies were a band that never really broke though, but do have a good influence factor. Covers of thier work have been done by Cracker, The Dictators, and The Raconteurs to name a few. "Shake Some Action" is a great song(imo). I don't get why the poll is so out of thier favor, but then again they only have 4 votes so far.

Great band...pretty influential. From the nasty garage of 'Teenage Head' through the Stonesy 'Slow Death' and their Apex 'Shake Some Action' The Groovies always delivered the goods.and have carried the banner of jangly guitars and choirboy harmonies. Godspeed Flamin Groovies.

"Shake Some Action" is absolutely a classic. "You Tore Me Down" (from the same album) is money as well. Awesome band.

Another cool band that will never get in. Did everything from Rockabilly to protopunk.
