I would never put in a band that signaled the end of Grunge as we knew it. Never!

I think that 3eb deserves it. They may not have been the most inovative band but they are still one of the most well known bands of the 90s

If 3eb wants it, they can. Their induction first chance is 2022. That's FIFTEEN YEARS. And guess what everyone forgets... They've only released THREE popular albums at this point. I find them to be a very influential Post-Grunge band.. at least to me.

These guys have no chance. What have they innovated? Who have they influenced? 3 charting albums and a handful of catchy singles means nothing in this day and age.

I am amazed at how many people on this site really and honestly believe that groups with less than 5 albums are worthy of the highest form of recobnition in the industry. I guess everyone thinks their fav band deserves in the HOF.

Maybe the city of Cleveland should have built a 25 story building and can just enshrine everyone who has a few albums that chart.

Oh don't be mistaken, these guys are influencial. Just not on rock music. That's right, 98 degrees, LFO (aka the LLcoolJ version boy bands) were their acolytes. Dunno how their legacy is doing nowadays tho, cause that music sucks.

Oh, not to mention they share a similar vein with many of the 90s one hit wonders. Not sure where that influence comes from.

Posted by Jud on Thursday, 10.2.08 @ 18:21pm

Jud, i'm pretty sure that influence is from R.E.M. They had a huge influence over a lot of the 90s music.

Everyone is ripping on them for only having 3 albums but does anyone not remember that The Sex Pistols got in and they only have one studio album!!!

Stephan Jenkins was a member of Puck and Natty. They performed the track "Just Wanna Be Your Friend" on the 1992 Beverly Hills 90210 soundtrack.

Honestly 3eb were mismarketed and miscoined at this alt rockish boy band / sex symbols when there was so much more to their music than what they played on the pop stations. You need to honestly give these guys a listen, and you'll find their music is about much more than just girls. Their music is about, well, the trials and tribulations of a 90s kid, pure and simple.

These guys were super influential in my life and if you ask me you'd be doing an injustice NOT to add these guys to the rock and roll hall of fame.

Another important thing to note- they never compromised on their sound. They never "sold out". Their entire discography can be taken as one cohesive whole.
