I sure hope so! What they did mixing rap and rock was so original and I just think they're great!

Limp Bizkit was not only way, way too late to be credited with mixing rap and rock, they blew. So does Papa Roach.

Wow. Honestly, there should not even be a listing for Papa Roach.

Come on.

They're actually one of the best bands today. It's heavy but also has good lyrics and music. I say yes.

Whoever honesty thinks they mixed rap and rock (by the way, it's called nu-metal) has no idea whatsoever. Cmon people, ever heard of Korn?! Linkin park? Even though this says they were around this long their first album wasn't till 2000 I think. they aren't original in any way, and only have a few singles that are hits. I have yet to hear of a recent band that has cited them as an influence in any way. They will be forgotten fairly soon unless they are able to make something amazing, which most likely won't happen.

I think Lovehatetragedy is a damned good album. 4 or 5 great songs on it.

Papa Roach should get in. And there first album was in 1994. They are a household name everyone knows who they are.

Being a household name isn't criteria for induction. And how do you know they're a household name? Did you go to every house in America and personally interview every single person? In addition, I've never met "Everyone," what kind of a person is he/she?

Posted by Tahvo Parvianen on Tuesday, 07.6.10 @ 02:51am

Also, does "Everyone" happen to be a close-relative, and/or business partner of Jann Wenner?

Posted by Tahvo Parvianen on Tuesday, 07.6.10 @ 02:59am

Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears and Lady Gaga are all also "alleged" household names aren't they? Does this mean they should be inducted? You're going down a slippery slope my friend

Posted by Tahvo Parvianen on Tuesday, 07.6.10 @ 03:01am

They're from my hometown, and I like their style, so I'd be very happy if they did. However, I feel like they were a one-hit wonder for a lot of people, and I really don't know how many kids and teens today really know who they are. I'm thinking that the music world isn't going to remember them by the time they can get in. Love them though, and hope for the best.

Saw these guys for 2nd time at Rock on the Range in Columbus, OH. Very wet weekend, so I was lucky to see them. They played before The Offspring & set a high bar to cross. I had seen them at Louder Than Life a couple of years ago & this set was waaaay better.

Mostly the hits, interspersed with 3 songs of new album. Jacoby looked as goos as I've ever seen him. Has lost weight, etc. During set he played a song & had a guy walking around in a giant rabbit costume (quite dirty, too). They guy had a nonplussed expression on face as he wandered around the stage & kept chewing on carrots, before throwing them to audience. Was funnier than Hell.

They finished up by having the drum/brass section of a local HS band join them on stage. Those kids looked pretty stoked as I think there were probably 35,000 in attendance.

I don't think they are Hall caliber yet, but boy was that a badass set.
