Correct answer here is Bj÷rk and Wu Tang Clan...you were on the money, martin...if only you hadn't thrown in Shania.

I don't know anything about Blink 182...but I know someone who isn't going to agree with you...lol!!!!
Posted by Terry on Thursday, 02.7.08 @ 21:10pm
Barney the Purple Dinosaur (who will be 88,002,018 years old when eligible) and Jordy (who will be thirty years old when eligible) are missing from this list.

Can we just skip this year and induct more old acts that still won't have gotten in by 2019? Because outside of the two rap giants (The Roots and the Wu-Tang Clan), this year is pretty out of it. Look...I know Bjork will make it in (as much as I personally despise her work), and Snoop, Dave, and Sheryl are good possibilities, but is anyone really that excited about inducting Sheryl Crow into the hall of fame? And will Snoop even be alive by this time?
Posted by Trey on Tuesday, 07.8.08 @ 14:42pm
Clarification: When I said "Good possibilities", I meant "good" as in "likely", not good as in "quality acts"...

Locks for induction, providing the basis follows the same pattern it has for a while now:

I think blink 182 (awsome) and dave matthews band (awsome) cause they contributed to music
Posted by BBC on Monday, 11.10.08 @ 23:02pm
really wanted to feel excitement for this year for some reason but only found that clutch was the only band here worth my precious time.
Posted by argh on Tuesday, 02.3.09 @ 10:12am
blink 182 all the freakin way!!!

A slightly difficult year; I don't really consider any of these artists "great." If Alice Cooper or KISS can't make it in any year prior to this, then this might be their best shot at it.

The (likely) inductees:
Posted by Cheesecrop on Tuesday, 07.14.09 @ 06:27am
Collective Soul had some great songs, but sadly them and the rest of the post-grungers really have no chance of induction in my opinion. The same with '80s arena rock. These artists will be seen as commercial bands and bands that have cashed in on grunge's popularity. Also, the fact that several of these post-grunge acts have sometimes been viewed as "Christian rock" doesn't help. Though I believe the rest of alternative music will be treated pretty highly by the commitee.

It will be interesting to see how Wu-Tang does. If people want to complain about rap in the rock hall, I think this would be a benchmark decision for future rap and hip-hop artists. I also wonder if they would consider all of the solo albums under the Wu-Tang banner since this is where much of their legacy is. No chance of a first year induction but they are an interesting future prospect.
Posted by Elastic Man on Tuesday, 07.14.09 @ 21:58pm
Well, Dameon this is how I see it. New wave artists(Elvis Costello, Blondie, Talking Heads, The Pretenders) and post-punk artists(U2, The Police) have been inducted and I believe more are on the way(I actually think the B-52s have a good chance of getting in).

Shouldn't 311 be in here since their first major record came out in 93? For some reason they have them listed that their first record came out in 90
Posted by Ken on Wednesday, 11.18.09 @ 14:53pm
Dave Matthews Band, Counting Crows, and Blink 182.
Posted by jibbles89 on Wednesday, 12.23.09 @ 10:50am
Blink-182 all the way theres no way they won't get in. I mean they broke up for 4 years and then they came back and it started something huge. Every one was happy they got back together, theres never bin so much excitement for a band getting back together ever. They sold almost 20 million copies of just one single album. There music videos are like no other I mean running down the streets naked thats classic. No one could forget about that, I mean even people who don't like rock no who Blink-182 is. I mean What's My Age Again, Dammit, All The Small things, First Date, I Miss You. These are not just regular singles there songs that are going down as classics that every one knows them wether you no who Blink-182 is or not. And its only gonna get better with there new album coming out in late 2010. 100% there gonna be in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
Posted by Ivan on Saturday, 02.13.10 @ 22:03pm
How does selling more than 31 million records all time, and grossing 530 million dollars of the 2000 decade alone not make you qualified for the hall of fame? Dave Matthews Band has been a huge name in music for the past 20 years. I can understand how some people do not like their music, but they are completely original compared rock bands today.
Posted by Danny on Thursday, 03.18.10 @ 18:21pm
Danny...go look at the induction criteria and tell us if it says anything about record sales (which I can assure you that it doesn't). Besides that, 31 million albums sold is really not that much...some artists have done that with ONE!!!
Posted by Gitarzan on Thursday, 03.18.10 @ 18:30pm
oh come on AFI ftw!!, these brought Post-hardcore to the maintream and have been through loads of different types of music like electronic music and alterntive rock but at the same time they have stuck to ther punk roots what is very rare for a band of any type of music.
Posted by Tom on Thursday, 03.25.10 @ 11:47am
1. Bjork - incredible body of work
Posted by 3MTA3 on Thursday, 03.25.10 @ 17:44pm
I believe Snoop Dogg, Wu Tang Clan, blink-182, Shania Twian will get in.
Posted by MC on Sunday, 04.11.10 @ 15:45pm
Bjork is definitely a lock, and for good reason.
Posted by Daniel on Wednesday, 06.9.10 @ 18:42pm
I like DMB but I don't think they should be inducted. Ditto for Collective Soul, who have little chance (unlike DMB who will likely be in eventually.) Maybe to Wu-Tang Clan, maybe to Bjork... otherwise, that's a very weak class. A good year to play catch-up, 2018.
Posted by Sam on Sunday, 06.27.10 @ 21:46pm
I think both Blink 182 & Everclear are worthy candidates for induction at some point in time.
Posted by Paul in KY on Monday, 06.28.10 @ 06:17am
Blink's a bit overhyped in my mind.
Posted by Sam on Wednesday, 06.30.10 @ 21:03pm
Bjork - totally original and influential- her ability to straddle the avant garde and the popular is unique.
Posted by top1 on Saturday, 09.18.10 @ 21:37pm
My humble opinion.

You are missing groundswell for the 2020 induction also known as three dats grace.
Posted by andrew on Thursday, 05.15.14 @ 18:56pm
Three days grace made their first album in 1995 under the name groundswell, they should be under the 2021 list not 2029 list.
Posted by andrew on Thursday, 06.26.14 @ 21:50pm
still no meatloaf
Posted by bobby black on Wednesday, 01.6.16 @ 02:46am
Is there a confirmation on when Blink-182 actually released their first demo, Buddah? Some sources say they released in 1993, while others say 1994.
Posted by Cody Walton on Friday, 02.26.16 @ 16:02pm
Missing Smashing Pumpkins which were huge in the 90's. released their debut album in 1991
Posted by Jacob on Thursday, 12.22.16 @ 19:39pm
Jacob: Smashing Pumpkins is listed on-site, but the year of eligibility is based on earliest released recording, whether an album or a single, and Smashing Pumpkins had two singles in 1990 before Gish came out.
