YES! Together with Joy Division, Bauhaus and Siouxsie & the Banshees!

The Sisters of Mercy are the kind of band that trivialized what Joy Division did. Please refrain from making direct connections between the two.

The Sisters are an alright goth rock band but aren't in this league.

A band whose records I enjoy, but there's really no case to be made for them getting into the hall. They were major players toward the end of Goth's run as a still vital and creative sub-genre, but they didn't bring much new to the table and the bulk of their influence seems to have been absorbed by inconsequential copycat bands who helped in large part to bring Goth to its unspectacular, self-parodied end by the late 80's/very early 90's.

It's a shame that inconsistency and Andrew Eldritch's delusional ego prevented them from going any further than they did.

Always high up on my Last.fm chart, though.

Elastic Man, what are you talking about?? They defined Gothic rock, influenced tons of bands. They are the third important gothic band after JD and Bauhaus
