This guy will probably never make the grade, at least if we can judge the voting panel correctly. While he doesn't have the kind of pedigree they want, he put out some great songs years back. Three of my favorite songs are "Girlfriend, "Sick of Myself", & "Where You Get Love".

I'll fanboy on out here & give the gent a yes vote. I have no clue as I write this if anyone has voted yes yet, but I think he deserves at least one vote.

One of the best power pop rockers of the 90's. Great albums include: Girlfriend, Altered Beast, 100% Fun, Kimi Ga Seki, and Sunshine Lies.

If the likes of Brian Wilson, Robert Quine, Richard Lloyd, Bono, Ferry, Eno voted --- he would be in the rockhall.

Not as good as Teenage Fanclub, but in the early 90's power-pop department I'd say he's a close second.

He should be in the Hall of Fame!

Security Question:

Which letter is Springsteen's band named after?
