the used should be inducted waaaay earlier than 2027.

Their music has inspired & changed many peoples lives & they deserve to be inducted. They are amazing!

Posted by Sarah on Thursday, 03.15.07 @ 12:47pm

They've made many impacts, on many people. I say yes.

who ever the said the used didnt change or inspire anything should just go ahead and trade in their brain for a ham and cheese sandwich and eat it. the used changed the face of their genre by making the scream more acceptable and easier to relate with. the used are by far the best rock band out there today. lyricly and musicly they touch and uplift people as well as provide an outlet for frustration. one of the few rock bands that have made their own sound instead of just following the trends. anyone trying to argue against the used is fighting a losing battle

Whoever said the used did nothing well their dumb.... THE USED ####ING ROCK!

The Used is maybe the most amazing band alive. They're one of the only bands I can think of where you can pick out one instrument or aspect of their music, listen to it the whole way through the album and not cease to be amazed until the cd's over. Underoath also needs to be inducted.

The Used have influenced my life more than words can say... they mightn't hav influenced ur small perfect little world but they'v given me the strength to keep going they definately deserve to be on the Future Rock Hall of Fame

The Used def.. even though they havent really done anything fo rme.. i love the music and adore it ... Talented group of boys.. Hey why not right they wanna let Tupac come on..

Posted by Nikke on Friday, 03.16.07 @ 07:30am

yes, i think so. they had a HUGE impact on much of the music popular at the moment and dominated the rock music scene for a long while. they went on a hiatus and died down a little, but i think the used hype is going to get bigger than ever with the release of their next album.

they write genuine music and is one of the few bands out there today who aren't in it for the fame, the teenies, or the money. they refuse to change for anybody, abandon the pretentious "theatrical" shtick so many bands are going for, and let the music speak for itself. they'll be remembered.

Kids, calm down. Being innovative and relating to you are two different things. Face it, they won't get in. Listen to glassjaw, refused, mind over matter. it's all been done before.

Posted by Stacy on Saturday, 03.17.07 @ 14:19pm

But, you see, not as WELL.

Glassjaw has never been as big as the used are now.

I mean, look how much they got through to even get to this point.

Give them the props they deserve.

Just like with TBS, i am not familiar with this band as well...and just like TBS, if I hear more noise from them, maybe I'll take a look and see.

Posted by maplejet on Thursday, 05.17.07 @ 12:55pm

Dude, The Used rock. If they get in, i will boycott the Rock Hall. I mean, God, why influence, it should be based by how good the artists are.

"Dude, The Used rock. If they get in, i will boycott the Rock Hall."-Chance

I can't be the only person confused by this.

"I mean, God, why influence, it should be based by how good the artists are."-Chance

It's kind of like how a history museum is mostly about important moments in history, and importance is much, much less subjective than "good." I could argue "good" with you all day, and rest assured I wouldn't use that word to describe The Used.

Posted by William on Wednesday, 07.18.07 @ 20:07pm

I think the Used has made screamo more acceptable. I have friends that only listen to mainstream stuff or techno, and they hear the Used and they love them. That's saying something. Their use of different musical elements, such the electro in Take It Away has definately influenced a lot of new bands. [I feel like Panic is one of those, also Sonny Moore's solo stuff. There's probably more that I haven't mentioned or know about.]

"They've had so much influence on so many people."

Is that a sense of humour? Because my joke detector is through the roof.

Posted by Bad Grammer on Friday, 11.21.08 @ 15:51pm

Possibly the best band ever. They're up their will My Chemical Romance in the kick-ass department.

They should already have been inducted in my opinio. Great band.

Posted by Steven Stalker on Saturday, 11.29.08 @ 05:12am

Calm down, children! They can't be inducted before 2027, because that's the rule! READ THE FREAKIN RULES BEFORE VOMITING HERE!

No. they won't be inducted. deal with it.

"The Used = innovating" - PERSON

I don't think innovating is a word, but what can you expect from the same "PERSON" who called Simple Plan "the best band of all time" and types all their comments in caps lock. Speaking of which, AntiIndie, your comment could be used on the Simple Plan page.

Posted by Keebord on Tuesday, 12.23.08 @ 20:31pm

Not really moving to the music industry but because they don't suck, I say yes.
