Top Ten Artists Eligible for Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2019Undistinguished To be eligible for rock and roll hall of fame, 25 years have to pass after the artist's debut album. So, artists with a debut album in 1994 would be eligible next year.
The Top Ten
They are like Black Sabbath on super-steroids, you know, just with overall attitude and balls.
Body of work! 'enough said.
Wait, what? They aren't already! What is some band called Emerson, Lake and Palmer doing there? You imbeciles!
Shocked they're not already in. - truckturner3 Comments
Priest need to be in hall of fame
They should have been in ther a long time ago and so should the scorpions along with them I see ther r 4 on here that should have gone a long time ago so get your chit together and put all of the in this comming year
Emerson Lake & Palmer, hands down, the Holy Trinity of Progressive Rock.
Keith Emerson was a great keyboardist. Gerald Lake was a great singer, bassist, guitarist and producer. Carl Palmer was a great drummer. But what they came up with was from another world.
They were creating new rock music sounds, including adaptations of classical music with jazz and symphonic rock elements, dominated by Emerson's flamboyant use of the Hammond Organ, Moog synthesizer, and piano. It was like nothing else out there.
They're not from this planet. I think they flew down from a spaceship and were put on this earth to make the craziest music.
Talk about three guys who studied and mastered the art of Progressive Rock, you know, who lived it, breathed it, and where like professors at it.
These guys were pure Prog Rock royalties.7 Comments
Amazing live performance and backstory. The studio albums speak for themselves.
The best music in the world
One of the most underappreciated bands of all time. They have some true classics. Blind, Twist, Freak on a Leash, Got the Life, Falling Away From Me. That's just from their first four albums. Great band. Definitely deserve to be inducted.
They single handedly invented the genre that is known as nu-metal, blending genres of heavy metal such as industrial metal, alternative metal, rap metal, thrash metal, and groove metal with grunge, hip hop, and (on occassion) hardcore punk. They have influenced various nu-metal, metalcore, emo and screamo bands after them.5 Comments
One of the Best and most influential bands ever totally deserve to get in.
Saw them in concert with Journey in Dallas, both bands are deserving of the Rock and Roll hall of fame. Journey already is in the hall of fame,now Def Leppard deserves to get in
Albeit a short run time-wise, check out the 1,000 greatest rock songs of all time list and you'll see the catalogue of this band...add Paul Rodgers role in Free, The Firm, front man for Queen's initial return to live touring...there is NO WAY this singer/band can be left out. Ask radio stations all over the world what would happen if Bad Co songs were eliminated from their Classic Rock playlist. Somebody at Rock Hall must not like Rodgers. that's the only explanation for not including this band.
It's disgraceful that Bad Company, and especially singer/songwriter Paul Rodgers, haven't yet been inducted to the Hall Of Fame. What a blatant insult to a fine group of musicians. Paul Rodgers is more deserving than any other rock/blues singers of this era. Please, for Paul's, Bad Company, and his fans' sake, nominate these stellar musicians NOW.
Possibly the single biggest snub currently - unbelievable - they were a sort of all-star band but their library of hits and classic albums can't be disputed. Put them in already.
How this band, at the very least Paul Rodgers, is not already in is a travesty. It's time to rectify this oversight, especially as Rodgers today sounds better than ever.2 Comments
Live Forever, Supersonic, Cigarettes & Alcohol, Wonderwall, Champagne Supernova, Don't Look Back In Anger, Don't Go Away, Lyla, The Masterplan, Acquiesce, Whatever, Stop Crying Your Heart Out...etc etc.
I doubt they'll get in straight away, but eventually I think they deserve to be inducted. Even if they weren't as successful in the US as they were in Britain, they were the biggest band in the world for about 2 years, brought British rock back into prominence after the grunge era and paved the way for a lot of newer rock acts.
Unpopular opinion, but I really hate Oasis. - DapperPickle
Because there catalog of music is un matched to any other band out there. Every bit of there material is beyond stellar! Layne Staley era to the Duvall era! An above any other bands are still being played on the radio daily. Jerry an Laynes solo carriers must not go unnoticed either. These guys are the heart an soul of (ROCK) music. Jerry, Shawn, mike inez
Best grunge band ever. - Userguy44
Deserve to be the rrhof
Why is he not inducted yet. Disgraceful.
One of the most influential bands of all time. You can't induct a prod band if you haven't inducted King Crimson. - JoLeKosovo
! John's gonna get in?!?!?!? (Happy Dance! )
Prog Rock and Heavy Metal need way more representation in the hall of fame.
Indie music is constantly ignored by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, so I don't know if the Smiths will ever get inducted, nor their future fellow indie music artists, such as Oasis, Blur, Joy Division and the Stone Roses.
British alternative music truly is underrated and largely ignored in America. I doubt Oasis and Blur would ever get in despite their legacy. The Smiths will probably take forever to finally be inducted. I am positive they will induct them one day, as the Cure and Radiohead have been inducted in the 2019 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Love them but they will not get in until these OLD FART voters die. They only listened to American Music. Talking Heads are in but none of the better British bands of the same elk.
One of the most influential groups in alternative rock history, and they're still not in. I expect this to change within the next few years, though. - Gg2000
Sure, but I imagine they've got a lot more mainstream artists vouching for them. Plus, they have a strong enough fanbase that they could theoretically get to the top of the voting ballot. - Gg2000
They weren't American and they weren't British. They were Irish! Before U2 and the Cranberries was Classic Rock's own Thin Lizzy. Mostly known for "The Boys Are Back In Town" they've been cited as influence from Guns N' Roses, Metallica and many others (Even Metallica gave them a nod during their own induction).
no. - winterbreeze
One of the most underrated bands ever, and definitely from the 90's-2000's!
The Power Trio that should have been in years ago
Not a Hall of Fame without them already in there.
They are timeless
Should have already been in1 Comment
He is a genius. Vote for him.
He's more than a musician. He's contributed to movies/voice overs, and a painter. He's an idol from my childhood. 🖤
How Are They Not - WWEWBMortalKombatFan
A lot of people hate them and a lot of people are diehards. I'm in the 10% that enjoy a lot of their music but don't hate them or are obsessed with them
HOF'ers for sure
These guys have consistently proven that they are above and beyond the other bands that came out at the same time they did. Not to mention they share some a lot of the same record and touring stats with led zeplin U2 the Beatles... #tourimg band in sales I n the world from 200-2009. they are the only band to consecutively debut 7 albums at #1 on billboard.
I am surprised she has not been on the list. shame
This is long overdue. So many hits, rick and rolled it without compromise and giving in to exploiting her sexuality and still performing today. Why has this not happened yet?
Also - Cher, Stevie Nicks and Tina Turner.
Seriously? Less than 1% chance? Travesty
Everyone knows a pat song
Embarrassing that they are not already in HOF
Absolutely should be in rock hall of fame, already in song writers hall of fame. long overdue!
Clearly should be in the hall. first 4 albums were classics
Well deserved, requested songs, excellent concerts, crowd pleaser
He definitely deserves to be in the Hall of Fame. Jeff Buckley was an amazing musician and singer, a talent taken from us way too soon.
Jeff was an amazing guitar player and singer. His version of Hallelujah cannot be outdone by anyone ( Mr. Cohan being the exception). He was someone taken from us too soon so much potential was in him. He SO deserves to be honored.
How is it that Jethro Tull are not in already? Their mix of Blues, Jazz, Celtic Folk, Folk, Bluegrass, and yes Rock is second to none. Most of their contemporaries are already in, (though it took too long ) Yes, Genesis, Rush, etc. Tull has Hit songs, Hit albums, Sold out arenas, and they have longevity. Not to mention musicality, musicianship and being an all around kick butt band. Both live and in the studio. To me and others Jethro Tull is the biggest of the biggest snubs. They most definitely should be inducted.
Dis picante they aren't in the hall. The most innovative band of all time. Truly one of a kind.
One of the biggest riffs in Rock n Roll history is Aqualung. This band had billboard number 1 and top ten Album hits throughout the 70s and had a longevity over the decades, that sells out arenas to this day. I'm baffled that they are not in, yet. what?
Over 100 million in album sales, 35 years as a band and still selling out STADIUMS! in 2018 No brainer
Rock, progressive rock band.
A great band. Steve Walsh, one of the best american singer.
R.i.P Chris Cornell! - Userguy44
IT'S ABOUT TIME
Hell yes. - JCHOW
Trent Reznor is a genius and helped bring industrial music to the mainstream. Definitely deserves to be in.
John Denver wasn't a rock and roll singer!
Little Feat was a very talented group and well loved!
Stevie Nicks' illustrious solo career has thrived for 37 years. She has contributed to numerous soundtracks, several duets, and has contributed backing vocals to many artists. She has also influenced, inspired, encouraged, and mentored countless artists including the current generation. She continues to be a huge draw for concert-goers even as she enters her seventies. Stevie Nicks has been eligible for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame honor for 12 years and has earned an induction.
