This is certainly an interesting year...especially considering Blur. That band has everything going their way except mainstream success in the United States.

PRIMUS SUCKS DONT VOTE FOR THEM!
Posted by suckonthis on Monday, 08.13.07 @ 22:13pm
Alice In Chains (perhaps my favorite of all time), Ice Cube, Mariah Carey (mostly for her earlier stuff but staying power means something too), and Smashing Pumpkins (I'd like to see them eek in).
Posted by Dave on Monday, 08.27.07 @ 04:55am
I see The Smashing Pumpkins being the only absolute lock for this year.

alice in chains should make in with Dirt a classic grunge album
Posted by cc on Sunday, 10.28.07 @ 20:00pm
Primus should make it in and so should Alice in Chains

A Tribe Called Quest would be a cool induction, but even if the Hall continues to honour rap they aren't necessarily a lock. A few years down the line, maybe.

WHAT ABOUT DEPECHE MODE THEY HAVE MADE MORE HITS THAN ANY OF THE SO CALL FUTURE INDUCTES THIS JUST SOME BULL
Posted by sam on Tuesday, 03.11.08 @ 14:28pm
Why are you talking about Depeche Mode here? Why are you talking about hits at all?
Posted by Liam on Friday, 03.21.08 @ 14:28pm
Holy shit! Nelson, Vanilla Ice, Slaughter, Wilson Phillips, Kid Rock and Firehouse. A murderer's row of talent. "I cant live without your love and affection. I cant stand another night on my own." I love Nelson.
Posted by Nick on Monday, 05.26.08 @ 15:28pm
This year actually has ATCQ, AIC, Blur, The Breeders, fIREHOSE, Jesus Lizard, Primus, Smashing Pumpkins, Spiritualized, Therapy? and Ween, any of whom would make a solid induction.
Posted by Liam on Monday, 05.26.08 @ 15:34pm

I still don't understand how Teenage Fanclub can have their induction chances at 33%? Isn't that....33% too high?
Posted by Keebord on Wednesday, 09.24.08 @ 12:56pm
2015/2016 from a 2008 vantage point looks to have more promising nominees than 2014/2015.
Posted by Julien Peter Benney on Friday, 09.26.08 @ 01:17am
Primus is just a rip off of King Crimson and their not in.
Posted by Alex H on Sunday, 10.12.08 @ 01:41am
The Black Crowes and possibly Smashing Pumpkins.
Posted by Mike on Sunday, 10.12.08 @ 05:31am
black crowes are a shoe in easily the greatest band of the 90's chris and rich are still goin strong with steve and known widley as one of the best live bands chris's voice is still great in concert and cant say that about alot of older bands today there getting better with age and the sad thing is there greatest albums they made were after there first which was shake your money maker with she talks to angels and hard to handle but not alot of people know this who arent die hard fans but if you go to the store and listen you will see all there albums are great and different they are a huge talent and are a great bunch of people from videotaping and picture taping there shows to the great songs they make i cant wait till the year they get in i will be waiting and the best this is im only 21 cant wait to halloween front row baby
Posted by Joey on Wednesday, 10.29.08 @ 07:28am
Of this class I see Ice Cube,a tribe called quest,alice in chains,and possibly smashing pumpkins getting in.
Posted by Chris on Monday, 12.1.08 @ 20:56pm
celine dion should be based on the fact that she is known in every corner of the world
Posted by pat on Thursday, 01.15.09 @ 10:11am
locks prolly aic, mariah carey 100% rock and roll epic fail, 311 deserves more cred they came original, also thought linkin park copied them way too much, primus also gr8 band claypool is amazing live.
Posted by argh on Monday, 02.2.09 @ 11:50am
A Tribe Called Quest

The Smashing Pumpkins

guyz! 311 hello?
Posted by baghead on Saturday, 03.14.09 @ 12:48pm
Smashing Pumpkins obviously since they are one of the best bands of alltime.

Hmm...this is a somewhat difficult year. I would love to see some of the less recognized bands on this list make it in (the Mighty Mighty Bosstones, for example), but I just don't seem them beating out Smashing Pumpkins, Alice in Chains, or even Hole. Oh well...with that in mind, I would vote for:
Posted by AreUExperienced on Monday, 07.13.09 @ 19:26pm
Posted by Lauren on Tuesday, 08.18.09 @ 00:27am
Alice In Chains
Posted by Alex on Tuesday, 11.10.09 @ 09:49am
311! Aside from The Grateful Dead, they have the biggest/loyal fanbase pop music has ever scene.
Posted by Ken on Wednesday, 11.18.09 @ 14:41pm
The Pumpkins and Alice in Chains no doubt
Posted by chrisothoulos on Sunday, 12.13.09 @ 12:03pm
If your theories about solo artists/bands is correct ... 2015 might be the year Bon Jovi is inducted as 1990 was the year of Jon Bon Jovi's 1st solo album (Blaze of Glory).
Posted by Jenny on Tuesday, 03.16.10 @ 13:34pm
A Tribe Called Quest - a shoe in for rap

Mariah Carey and Smashing Pumpkins definatly will get in. Alice in Chains could, and Blur is a possiability.

311 all the way...and feel that they are the most deserving because of no break up of the band also being the most consistent with new material.
Posted by will on Thursday, 06.17.10 @ 07:30am
AIC should absolutely be inducted, and I'm confident that they'll make it in eventually, but probably not first ballot. Kid Rock, Primus and Black Crowes are toss-ups for me (Of these only Kid Rock has a real chance; the Crowes haven't maintained their popularity while Primus have always been a cult band.) Blur should get in, but no way in hell will they get in first ballot, and I'd put money on them not getting in at all (How can they get in when The Smiths, The Cure, Joy Division and New Order can't?) If this Hall was in the UK all of those bands would get in easily, but oh well. I don't like Mariah Carey and don't think she should be inducted but I could see her making it in as she's kept the mainstream noticing her where Celine Dion hasn't. I could go either way on Moby.
Posted by Sam on Friday, 06.25.10 @ 21:32pm
I forgot about Smashing Pumpkins. I'd say they should be inducted, and out of this lot they're the only ones who really have a good shot at being first-ballot as they've had both popularity (in the 90's) and critical acclaim. Now, if they could become relevant again...
Posted by Sam on Friday, 06.25.10 @ 21:35pm
WHAT A WEAK YEAR.
Posted by FREEDEE on Thursday, 10.7.10 @ 17:46pm
if there's any justice in this world Blur will get in, but they're as un-American as you can get, so who knows if that will work against them...
Posted by Jack on Friday, 11.12.10 @ 21:14pm
Blur's induction is highly unlikely for that very reason, which is a shame because I think they're a no-brainer. If The Smiths can't get any respect and bigger alternative acts like The Cure and Depeche Mode struggle to get on the ballot, there's no way Blur will get a fair shot. Alice in Chains probably will get it, though I don't think they'll get it until Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Jane's Addiction and Rage Against the Machine are all in, so they'll probably have to wait a few years. Smashing Pumpkins are a lock, no doubt. Moby? Possibly. He's found success and he is respected, but the Hall's dislike for his type of music (Kraftwerk are STILL waiting in the wings and have only made one appearance on the ballot) greatly hurts his chances. If Kraftwerk (the godfathers of it all) and Depeche Mode (the leaders of electronica in the 80's alongside New Order) can get in, then that'll take his chances up. I'd say Mariah has a 50% chance, and I'll take that number up if Whitney Houston gets in. For popularity reasons Kid Rock has a chance.

leisure was released in 91, blur should only be eligible in 2016
Posted by jonathan on Monday, 01.10.11 @ 19:35pm
Actually, in addition to being the first track on Leisure, "She's So High" was the first single, being released on 15 October 1990 in the UK. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PLtAbGlUv1o&feature=channel

Out of all of these Mariah Carey is sadly, the most likely.

Will for sure:
Posted by Cloonie on Monday, 08.22.11 @ 18:05pm
If Mariah is still around and relevant in 2015 *knock on wood* - without doubt!
Posted by Bastian on Tuesday, 11.29.11 @ 22:40pm
Mariah's HUGE comeback with The Emancipation of Mimi, secured her standing amongst the greats.
Posted by bastian on Wednesday, 11.30.11 @ 02:57am
A Tribe Called Quest - DOn't know much at all about them but I know that they are highly regarded in rap circles so they might have a chance.
Posted by GFW on Wednesday, 12.21.11 @ 09:05am
Alice in Chains & The Black Crowes are both worthy nominees, in my book. The Breeders are a female group that received some commercial success. Of course, Mariah Carey has sold millions of records & been the kind of outsized personality the Hall sems to love.

Can I just ask why in the hell is Motley Crue Not in the Rock and Roll hall of fame. They sold over 80 million records and they r on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Last time I knew that this is the Rock and Rollhall of fame NOT this RAP SHIT Music.
Posted by Tracy lundie on Saturday, 02.1.14 @ 12:17pm
Probably because Motley Crue sucks ass (IMO).
Posted by Paul in KY on Saturday, 02.1.14 @ 17:51pm
I think it's a tragedy that Chicago has not been induced to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. You should be ashamed of yourselves. I guess the induction committee is hard of hearing.
Posted by Allison Mastrangelo on Monday, 02.3.14 @ 12:15pm
Posted by GFW on Monday, 02.3.14 @ 14:03pm
On this list the only 2 I see that should make it into the (ROCK n ROLL) Hall of Fame are The Black Crowds and Alice in Chains.There are slot of bands that I enjoy that are eligible but these are the only 2 real rock bands.I think diversity can be good but it's not the music hall of fame ,it's the ROCK n Roll Hall of Fame.
Posted by Kevin Harrison on Sunday, 03.30.14 @ 09:54am
lol the rnrhof has never just been rock.
Posted by GFW on Sunday, 03.30.14 @ 10:27am
I would think Smashing Pumpkins & maybe Mariah Carey would get in at some point.
Posted by Paul in KY on Monday, 03.31.14 @ 15:03pm
Moby Grape, Quicksilver Messenger Service and Country Joe & the Fish are all classic rock bands that should have been inducted long time ago, same thing for the 13th Floor Elevators. Also Connie Francis, the first female Rock & Roll star has been overlooked.
