I just saw a "yes" vote for these guys which made me realize I completely forgot about them. I recall them being a pretty good British Invasion band.

No the Pretty Things will likely never be inducted (though still some good songs from the band) but Cleveland needs to hurry up and get their British Invasion contemporaries the Zombies in.

I've noticed the Pretty Things get 12% induction chances, which is higher than, say, the 8% score this site is giving the Troggs.

Speaking of Pre-heavy metal, it's interesting to note that the three acts usually considered as proto-heavy metal who had that psychedelic-blues-rock sound (unlike the Pretty Things), Blue Cheer, Iron Butterfly and Vanilla Fudge all have lower induction chances than the Pretty Things.

I hope The Pretty Things will be inducted within the next few years. They are not well known in the USA as they are in their native Britain and Europe, but they influenced bands like The Ramones. Their music was considered more rock and roll than The Rolling Stones and they are a pioneer in garage rock. They are on tour this year celebrating 50 years.
