The Hooters are probably a band most here would never have heard of unless you happened to be in and around Philadelphia in the early 80s and listening to radio station WMMR.

I believe their only song to have national exposure was "All You Zombies."

Chances for induction-a buck shy of a penny.....

they had more hits than that.

And We Danced
Day By Day
Where Do the children Go

These were all Top 40 hits in Billboard

plus a couple of them played on Cyndi Lauper's first album

OK, I exaggerated. They did open Live Aid in 85'-so I guess they did have international exposure for about 10 minutes and a few hits here and in Europe.

I still doubt many under 20 years old know who they are.

I'll change my expectations from a buck shy of a penny to a quarter shy of a dime.

They have some great songs, particular "And We Danced" and "Johnny B"

We'll probably never see them in the Hall of Fame but a good band nevertheless.

^ And of course the aforementioned "All You Zombies," can't believe I forgot about that one, great song. Like I've said, not Hall of Fame worthy, but a good group.

The Hooters are a great pop band, led by Eric Bazilan & Rob Hyman, who also worked with Cyndi Lauper and Joan Osborne. All three of those acts deserve to be in the Hall, but I doubt any of them will make it in.

Security Question:

Which letter is Springsteen's band named after?
