as long as their new album doesnt suck like that last pink piece of shit, they're better than most from our day

Heh, the last album was indeed disappointing, but also their most successful due to being on a major. If they can churn out another hit album or two, they'll probably get in once people start exploring their earlier, groundbreaking albums.

Too early to call.

Great band. Maybe a third year induction?

These guys should definitely be in. You can't punish a band for trying to be radio-friendly. Who doesn't want thier music to be heard by people everywhere? But you have to admit that they maintained thier core sound while reaching the FM masses.

"Float On" is a lame ripoff of "Sunday, Bloody Sunday".

I listened to both sunday bloody sunday and Float On and they sound nothing a like. Anyways. I say Modest Mouse should be inducted once they get the chance. The Lonesome Crowded West and The Moon and antartica were underrated albums that deserve more credit though.

Saw this band at The Hangout. They played on main stage. Could not get any closer than 8th row, out on side by video screen on left (God knows I tried). Had a very nice view, though. Just played all their best & I thought they did a wonderful job. Would like to see them again.

The Lonesome Crowded West is an essential album.
Some essential tracks off it are Trailer Trash and Cowboy Dan.

Be sure to check that album out everyone.

Security Question:

Which letter is Springsteen's band named after?
