yes this band hand the entire world, (except for the u.s.), in the palm of their hand for over a decade, they sold out wembley stadium, no small feat, and they constantly made the best beatlesque pop records of their generation. not to mention the youngest school kid still knows the words to dont dream its over...

Exactly Rick (except for the u.s.) They were a one hit wonder here so I say no to the Hall.

They are a truly great band, but are they really influential enough to get into the hall? Probably not quite. Maybe they'll slip in eventually when the hall are struggling for credible inductees. I personally hope so. Grandmaster Flash have been inducted for god's sake.

I'd actually really love to see CH get inducted -superb pop group who fully deserved the big sales.

Being australian won't help them though.

A second original member of Crowded House has died!

Sorry, the photo Rolling Stone posted on their site confused me. Peter Jones was not an original member of Crowded House.

@Liam Australian really considering the creative genius behind them Neil Finn is very much a New Zealander and the band formed in Auckland from the remains of another New Zealand band Split Enz.

@Roy Peter Joans was not an original member of Crowded House he was a session musician drafted in after Hester died. He was not invited to join Crowded House when they reformed in 2006.

You only need to see them live once to see the spell they hold on the audience. Young and old, female and male all entranced. I have seen acts from NIN, Pink Floyd, U2 all multiple times and Crowded House will always be the best live performance in my books

Actually, they had two hits in America: "Don't Dream It's Over" and "Something So Strong". And yes, they were--and are--huge in Australia. Several worthy acts became huge in Australia--John Farnham comes to mind--but to my knowledge, not many (AC/DC, the Bee Gees, and who else?) continued to make it big here.

Security Question:

Which letter is Springsteen's band named after?
