These artists released their first recording in 1980, which made them first eligible for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2005 (which would be the 2006 Induction Ceremony).

Huey Lewis and The News and The Go-Go's should also be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame! They had such fun pop songs!

Those who might complain that the only artists eligible in 2005/2006 who have been discussed are hip-hop (Afrika Bambaataa and Treacherous Three) should understadn that the major reason for the failure to discuss a single non-rap artist is the Nominating Committee trying to satisfy both sides of late 1970s musical history.

Very true in regards to hip-hop, but it also goes to amplify my point that the Hall is running into the era that they dislike the most - namely the period that made them wish for a Hall in the first place. The Hall itself is wish fulfillment to a mid-life crisis that is now becoming an albatross around the old guard's neck. They'll probably approach it one of two ways:

What you suggest is definitely possible, and more's the better for us if in fact it does turn out as such. I guess what makes me ponder a minute is what I read about the Sex Pistols issue of RS that ran in 77 (I believe). Wenner was totally against it, and let coverage of the whole movement boil down to the sales of that one issue. RS in recent years appears to wish to play it safe and select writers only after the passion has been drained out of them. I've read Harrington before. While I didn't necessarily agree w/everything he said, I appreciated his views nonetheless. I hope he can retain the passions he had several years ago, and opts not to play it safe. Things could change.

What about X. Grave oversight.

X was first eligible in 2003.

Ozzy Osbourne deserves the solo induction. I like Huey Lewis And The News and The Go-Go's, but I don't see them getting in any time soon.

I'm making a case for Willie Nile

It is unlikely that Afrika Bambaataa will get inducted now that they haven't been nominated since 08'

I believe Minutemen might have the influence to be worthy. Ozzy should be inducted. Joan Jett? I'd rather The Runaways got in, but obviously she and The Blackhearts have a better chance than they do. You might be able to make a case for Diamond Head as they were somewhat influential, but they have no chance to be inducted. The Go-Go's were pretty good as were Huey Lewis and the News but I don't think their achievements quite measure up. Dead or Alive? Probably not. I wouldn't have a problem with Afrika Bambatta being inducted. I wouldn't have a problem with INXS inducted either as they kicked ass but they don't really fit the criteria.

The Go-Betweens are by far the most innovative band that no one has ever heard of....
