"Arcade Fire, Battles, and Madvillain."

Kanye West is going to make it he has had huge influence on rap and hip hop as a producer and will have huge influence as an artist by the time his career is done so if people like jay z and eminem are going to make it then he definitly will.

The Matches. (Not really going to happen, but they've only put out 3 albums and done better stuff than a lot of bands that have been around for four times as long.)

U'm going with the Killers, Ratatat, and possibly Velvet Revolver

Ratatat? You're not serious Mike?

What a weak year.

Right now, I'd say the bands/acts that are starting out on the road to the HOF are:

That's about 6 more acts then I'd give any creedence too. MAYBE Kanye West, but like we both said, it's way too early to really say. I'm no fan of his, but at least he's making an impact.

Ralph, I didn't know Velvet Revolver is about half-defunct. Gwen Stefani I know next to nothing about, except that she is a popular (with a segment of the public) and has had some successful material.

Gwen had potential when she was singing her older brothers songs (No Doubt's first album). Once she left ND, she rapidly devolved into a generic pop-tart.

Ralph, if the criteria for induction basically means the act has to have a career on the par of Led Zeppelin, Elvis, etc. then there aren't going to be too many inductions.

The best chances here belong to Kanye West and Arcade Fire, who are both on pace to be locks. I know nothing about AF, and as for West: What I've heard from him so far has left me underwhelmed and thinking he's overhyped. Perhaps I just need to listen harder (I loved the Katrina thing.) Still, both those acts seem to be making waves, and considering that the bar might be lower by this time (Nickleback, Beyonce, Rihanna, The Black Eyed Peas) there's no reason not to put them in. Let's put it this way: If Coldplay and Jay-Z are getting in (which they are, it's just a question of one) then why can't the above two get in as well? Same with Franz Ferdinand. I'm not a huge fan and they're not particularly innovative, but as Liam said they're stand-outs in the New Wave and Post-Punk revival, as are The Killers, who have produced some terrific music so far. With those two it's a matter of continuing to produce quality music, and since they are widely considered to be among the best in the aforementioned revival they could very well develop some influence over the next twenty years, if they haven't already. Once again, they just need to keep going and see how things turn out. At the very least The Killers are different from what else is going on in the mainstream.

Might as well throw the Arcade Fire in now. They are clearly a lock.
Posted by Joel on Wednesday, 12.15.10 @ 16:36pm
I thought I should mention that Arcade Fire released their first EP in 2003, which would make them eligible in 2028. They're on the wrong page. :)

Keep an eye on Kanye West, Sugarland, and Zac Brown Band... if they all continue to skyrocket, they are all possible locks
Posted by John on Monday, 03.14.11 @ 15:43pm
How is Sugarland even potentially close to being a lock? With country musicians that actually deserve being in like Willie Nelson or Waylon Jennings out, not to mention everyone from Dwight Yoakam to Garth Brooks, how can Sugarland possibly be a potential lock?
Posted by Tahvo Parvianen on Friday, 04.29.11 @ 16:35pm
Kanye West & Danger Mouse have the best shots to me.
Posted by Cloonie on Saturday, 08.20.11 @ 11:55am
Kanye and Arcade Fire are probably locks (and deservedly so)
Posted by GFW on Thursday, 08.28.14 @ 16:33pm
I didn't think Franz Ferdinand had been around as long as The Killers. Need to give these bands some time, GFW. They have another 15 years to make their case. The Killers (right now) are headlining major music festivals. I have seen them live & they are awesome.
