Oasis were an English rock band formed in Manchester in 1991. Developed from an earlier group, the Rain, the band originally consisted of Liam Gallagher (vocals and tambourine), Paul "Bonehead" Arthurs, Paul "Guigsy" McGuigan, and Tony McCarroll.
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

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.

14 Jethro Tull
Jethro Tull were a British rock group, formed in Luton, Bedfordshire, in December 1967. Initially playing blues rock, the band soon developed its sound to incorporate elements of British folk music and hard rock to forge a progressive rock signature.
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.
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?
