WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE?? Can't you see amazing music when it slaps you in the face? They have taken the old tradition punk style and made it into something amazing and modern. They have this perfect blend of old and new and of commercial and original. Their lyrics are unique and their musicianship is good and their energy is so amazing.

The Hives are definitely a favorite of mine, but their not getting into the Hall. Their always releasing something that catches my ear, yet apparently I am one of the few who really like them. Oh well.

Will someone please talk about the Hives?

Enough with Coven!

I love the hives, but I'm not sure if they're hall of fame material. If you bill them in with the "Garage Rock Revival" Then their material just doesn't stand up to that of The Strokes, or The White Stripes. If you don't bill them in, well, wasn't they're only phenomenal album Tyrannasaurus Hives? I'm just saying, I'm not sure the HOF will look at them in 11 years, or if they'll even be remembered then. The one thing they got going for them, is they are more consistent then the strokes, First Impressions of Earth was awful.

Influence: The hives were an influence on the garage rock revivaly, but not as much as The WHite Stripes and The Strokes, plus that revival didn't last so long. 10%
Innovation: they were however, the first to record out of the big three (Strokes, hives and White Stripes)So that alone gets them some points. 15%.
Commercial Sucess: the hives has had some good album sales, but not that much. 10%
Critical respect: The hives have always enjoyed good album ratings from near enough all critics. 20%

55%, deserve to be considered and maybe inducted.
