Not a chance. They had one hit and that's about it.

Playing that funky music won't get them into the hall.

Notice how The Jaggerz and Wild Cherry both have among the lowest fan approval on the site and both groups have Donnie Iris in them.

Actually as of right now (subject to change) Wild Cherry has the lowest approval with The Jaggerz in a tie for second lowest:

1. Wild Cherry 13.11% (61 votes)
2. Jessica Simpson 14.62% (718 votes)
3. The Jaggerz 14.62% (260 votes)

When your 2 biggest songs are about playing "funky music" and a "rapper," you don't exactly endear yourself to hard core rock fans.

Play That Funky Music White Boy was not by the Average White Band, it was by Wild Cherry.
