Complete List of Artists NOT in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

This list contains artists from across the popular music spectrum. The Rock Hall claims to honor the "contributions of those who have had a significant impact on the evolution, development and perpetuation of rock and roll." Rock Hall of Famers such as Michael Jackson and Miles Davis, don't neatly fit into the "rock" genre, but their influences on today's rock landscape are undeniable. Therefore, it would be premature to dismiss any of today's artists because their contributions may not become clear until we have the luxury of hindsight.
