I am still waiting for Pat Benatar .. my god she shaped rock and roll for women far more than somone choking on food will ever. Its been 3 years of nominations and she is not recognized and boy bands are .. its not right.

Pat Benatar, Rickie Lee Jones, Def Leppard, and Lucinda Williams in my opinion should all be inducted into the hall of fame. I hope next year this does happen!

I'm backing The Dead Kennedys, Echo and The Bunnymen and The Specials out of this lot.

And you think the Dead Kennedy's are deserving?

Yes, I do think The Dead Kennedys are deserving. Fresh Fruit... is among the greatest punk albums, IMO.

Def Leppard's probably going to make it in. The question is when?

Milestones, I couldn't help but notice that your lists were very big from about 1990-1998 and then at around 1999 they dropped off to only about 2, 3 or 4 artists
Posted by Keebord on Sunday, 09.6.09 @ 06:41am
That's because most of the artists eligible from about 1999 onward suck except for a few lol

I still can not believe that Pat Benatar has not been inducted! When she burst on to the scene in 1979, she was the voice of Rock& roll.She is still a powerhouse in concert today, and has toured every Summer since 1995. Wake up Hall of Fame Members!...If you need proof go to one of her Concerts.. She will blow you away by her powerful stage presence, and that Voice....she will blow the roof off of any concert venue.... Amust for next Year... She is way overdue!

Def Leppard did not influence anyone. If they get in, then Thomas Dolby needs to go with them for playing keyboards on Pyromania.

If you don't think Def Leppard influenced anyone, then you weren't alive, or paying attention, in the 80's

Def Leppard, Iron Maiden will get in and should be in at this moment of time.
Posted by MC on Sunday, 04.11.10 @ 17:14pm
Iron Maiden, definitely. The Dead Kennedys have the influence to be worthy. Def Leppard? Maybe, but they need to get in line. The Specials and Echo & The Bunnymen, probably. I could go either way on Pat Benatar. Maybe to Accept, Saxon, Bauhaus and Sugarhill Gang.

How on earth can someone say Def Leppard didn't influence anyone? Whether you liked or hated them, groups like Poison, Slaughter, Warrant, Winger and Firehouse all emerged in the late 80's and early 90's. Each of these groups were heavily influenced by Def Leppard. But don't take it from me, read the bio from the respected AllMusic website for Def Leppard. Here's a small part of it "Def Leppard's presence was unavoidable -- they were the kings of high-school metal, ruling the pop charts and MTV, and teenagers and bands alike replicated their teased hair and ripped jeans".
