Of the "girl groups" in the new wave era, I would rather see Bananarama, especialy the work with Fun Boy Three

They were commercially successful for a while, no doubt, but they weren't as influential on a whole generation or two of impressionable future female musicians as, say, Joan Jett, The Go-Go's, Chrissie Hynde, Exene, Annie Lennox or Cyndi Lauper (or, on the alt/garage side, The Pandoras or The Brood) ...

Songs like Manic Monday,Walk like an Egyptian and Eternal Flame are classics.

I really believe the Bangles have established themselves as icons and roll models for future & current female bands. I would be estatic to see the bangles for them to be among the legends of music. They are the Beatles of female rock....

I like them!!

Uhhh.... no, let's just leave it at that. Back on Earth however, I certainly wouldn't complain if the Bangles got inducted.

If there was the remotest chance we'd see Michael Steele back with Vicki, Debi and Susanna for one more song, then it's an automatic if you ask me. Chick bassists!! Hell yes!!!

Quintessentially a girl-rock group, sure give them a shot. Susanna Hoff is one hot babe!

Only if Michael Steele is included. Without her, the Bangles are pretty lame and flat.

Their songs remain relevant today as they were when released. A definite HOF quality.

Susie Hoffs one hot rocker babe and the Peterson sisters. Eternal Flame and Hazy Shade of Winter cover were other hits. Good singers played own instruments. Girl band! Need more girl bands!

Their first EP and their first LP " All Over The Place" solidify the Bangles as A Quality Induction . Aesthetically , their commercial well known hits are not the essential Bangles.
Along with Micheal Steel, Susanna and the Peterson sisters have given us absolute classics like " Hero Takes A Fall" , "Live" , "New World", "Getting Out Of Hand" and "James" . L.A. Women Rock!

T.J. Kiernan, if I were a Rock Hall voter the Bangles would get my vote.

their music makes me happy
