Before there was the Beatles Anthology or This is Spinal Tap there was "All You Need Is Cash." I do think Spinal Tap and the Rutles do deserve some kind of honorary recognition by the Rock Hall Museum, if not induction into the Hall of Fame itself for showing how rock can laugh at itself. I would be Out of Me Head if they got inducted though.

Sadly there are few of us who agree here. I jokingly posted on the Three Stooges earlier. While I didn't obviously mean it (though it would be cool if someone at this stuffy Hall thought the same way) bubblegum music, the Rutles, Spinal Tap, Weird Al, and anyone else mining a few laughs at rock's expense are probably destined never to see the inside of the Hall. Regrettably.

They should of been in the second they were eligible, they were the most sucessful band ever and changed the face of modern music. Their legacy cold neve rbe tarnished, even iwth those bloody beatles ripping them off.
