There's absolutely no one here who has made a big blast on music...maybe Timbaland, but you know his best shots lie as a producer. Seriously though, I can't think of any band here who's been influential, or even talked about. This might be a slow year and a chance for backlogged artists to get in.

The Avalanaches, Deerhoof and Of Montreal have been idolized by many in the indie rock community, so you're a wee bit uninformed...can tell from your posts that the radio is your primary source of music knowledge.

Just because indie nerds like those bands doesn't mean they have a place...there are already a lot of holes regarding rock right now...a lot of obvious classic bands like The Cure, Deep Purple, and Rush are being ignored.

Deerhoof and Of Montreal might be wildcards at the moment (although I wouldn't be surprised if similar bands with more radio appeal start cropping up soon), but Sigur Rós is a phenomenon. They already have a fair number of followers, and I'd really be surprised if they didn't continue to build over the years. The only reason I can't wholeheartedly say "they'll get in" is that it's still 15 years off. For that same reason, I have to say that the backlog you're complaining about (which IS a serious problem now, don't get me wrong) might not even exist then, so it's not worth considering.

Did they really call Baby 81 a "sophomore slump"? It's their fourth record. That said, I can understand it getting a mediocre score considering how poorly it compares to pretty much their entire catalog up to that point (especially Howl). Not a bad record, but they can do better.
Posted by William on Thursday, 12.13.07 @ 13:59pm
Indeed, and I agree that they could (and hopefully will) do better next time. But 4.5?
Posted by liam on Thursday, 12.13.07 @ 14:10pm
That said, they did give Out Of Nothing bu Embrace a 7.2, when it would have been SO EASY to label them VerveandOasis clones.
Posted by liam on Thursday, 12.13.07 @ 14:24pm
There are at least three.

The Finnish band Nightwish is missing from this list.
Posted by Gregory Pietsch on Monday, 03.24.08 @ 14:49pm
As far as Nightwish is concerned, they meet at least two of the criteria. Do they rock? Yes. Is the music mind-bending? Yes. Did they make a "rock move"? I don't know if firing operatic singer Tarja Turunen via an open letter qualifies, but it comes close.

Get up kids defined early emo, not that they'll get in though. P diddy, third eye blind and slipknot of all bands.
Posted by allan on Saturday, 09.6.08 @ 23:56pm
There isn't much here to work with, aside from a few well known names. If they're going to do it like they usually do (i.e. ignore the very outline they've set up and go for the greenbacks) then Creed, Missy Elliott, and P. Diddy are in. What's frightening is just how small scale much of this list is, and how little effect anyone here has had on music in a broader sense. Outside of the last five years, where things are still to early to tell, is this the worst year ever for picks?

There is one contributing factor in all of these "groups/artists that are eligible in 20**. It doesn't mean ANY of them will be inducted. By the looks of it, someone in this group needs to step up and do something REALLY special!

this year has no locks. i can't see any of these artist getting in for a long time. (Maybe P. Diddy or Slipknot).

There once was a town called Calexico. It had two rival gangs, The Buena Vista Social Club and the cult-like Children of Bodom, the latter of which had the slogan "Five For Fighting!" The leader of the Children of Bodom was a man Of Montreal who was only known as "Mudvayne." The leader of the Buena Vista Social Club was a man called Travis who rode a motorcycle he called Warhorse. The two fought a bloody war the results of which can still be felt in the Atmosphere. After the war was over the town's reputation turned around 98 Degrees until one day, Mudvayne returned under the alias of Will Smith but he was subsequently arrested for Floggin Molly, the town's female sheriff.

Some of the name's definitely have an overcreativie edge to them
Posted by Keebord on Monday, 01.4.10 @ 06:35am
Slipknot & P Diddy to me, will.
Posted by MC on Sunday, 04.11.10 @ 15:52pm
This group hasn't really done much that would make one say "Wow! They need to get into the Hall!".
Posted by Daniel on Wednesday, 06.9.10 @ 18:49pm
Daniel...what exactly do you base an artist being a "lock" on??? Are you even aware of what the criteria is???
Posted by Gitarzan on Wednesday, 06.9.10 @ 19:09pm
Keep an eye on Children of Bodom, Flogging Molly, O.A.R. and HammerFall even if none of them stand a chance. Travis released some good stuff, but I've no idea what happened to them, and they only had one critically acclaimed album, so their induction is unlikely. Creed do have better chances than Travis (unfortunately,) but they've got virtually no critical respect and this comeback of theirs has been a 15 minutes thing so far, so unless they can build their popularity back up they won't be inducted. I'll do some research on Sigur Ros, and they do have some real critical respect, so I'd keep an eye on them. Slipknot are alright, but they face "the metal problem," I'm not sure whether I'd call them innovative and they don't have much influence to speak of. Third Eye Blind, Switch Foot, Five For Fighting and Smash Mouth had a few hits, but nothing earth-shattering, and they're now obscure. The best chances here belong to Missy Elliott (who does have enough critical respect, but I'm not sure about popularity,) Timbaland (who has legitimate commercial success but not much critical respect, so his legitimate chances are as a Non-Performer) and Wyclef Jean (see Timbaland, except he's not a NP.) Needless to say, nobody in this class is a lock just yet, and none of them have a good chance just yet except maybe Missy Elliott and Timbaland.

Seriously??? Everyone here is clueless to who Derek Trucks is? I can 100% guarantee you he will be in the hall of fame. He is the greatest guitar player of our generation. If you don't believe me look up this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=84AofJh-7FM. He will blow your mind. By far the most talented musician on this list.

What a horrible year here, i feel like the people who've been stubbed the previous years will get in and nobody from this class will get in their first year.
Posted by Cloonie on Monday, 08.22.11 @ 18:33pm
Going by our site's projects the only worthy person here is Missy Elliot (excluding timbaland as a producer)

Posted by Tahvo Parvianen on Thursday, 12.8.11 @ 10:48am
Except, '31 has Fleet Foxes, '32 has Vampire Weekend, and '33 has Lady Gaga. All of which are creeping out of the "too-soon-to-tell" phase. This class has Missy Elliott, who I say is about in the same league as the three I mentioned.
Posted by Paul Kagebein on Friday, 12.9.11 @ 02:03am
Sigur Ros should be considered, both by the the real Hall of Fame and our Hall of Fame. Premiere Post-Rock group.
Posted by Gassman on Friday, 12.9.11 @ 02:19am
OK, I take that back then. Paul, the three you mentioned definitely have legitimate cases.
Posted by Tahvo Parvianen on Friday, 12.9.11 @ 04:49am
If you're still here, Tahvo, maybe you can help me out. Gass mentions the term "post-rock" on this page as a term for the group Sigur Ros.
Posted by Cheesecrop on Friday, 12.9.11 @ 06:28am
I don't know what exactly "post-rock" means, I know what artists get this label attached to them (like Sigur Ros who I'd consider more ambient/electronic) but I guess it's the new "post-punk"
Posted by Tahvo Parvianen on Friday, 12.9.11 @ 07:24am
I guess you'd have to also look at Creed & Erykah Badu. Third Eye Blind started out OK, but haven't done much lately.
