Top 10 Bands Which Actually Deserve to Be in the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame

I recently did a list of artists I feel do not deserve to be in the Rock n Roll Hall of fame, either because they are not rock, or they are rock, but I just feel they don't deserve. This list shows bands which are not in the hall of fame but actually deserve it.

The Top Ten

1 King Crimson King Crimson King Crimson is a British progressive rock band that was formed in 1969. While the band had numerous band member changes, the head of the band has always been Robert Fripp (Guitar). more.

Ignoring the influence they had on the progressive rock scene (I personally don't care about that aspect as much as their actual music) which was definitely immense, the music itself is extremely original and fresh sounding even by today's standards. - kempokid

I don't really like KC, but I definitely agree they should be there. - somekindofaguy

Definitely deserve to be in more than ’ Tupac. I get that he’s dead and he left an impact, BUT HE’S A DAMN RAPPER! He in no way resembles rock! They should change it to “The Popularity Hall Of Fame”. Then they should make a Rock & Metal Hall Of Fame where the real gods can be inducted.

2 The 13th Floor Elevators The 13th Floor Elevators

3 Vanilla Fudge Vanilla Fudge Vanilla Fudge was a American Psychedelic band in the late 1960s. Their two first album was all covers, but their third album is mostly original content. They are also credited for somewhat influencing Progressive Rock.
4 Blue Cheer Blue Cheer Blue Cheer was an American rock band that initially performed and recorded in the late 1960s and early 1970s and was sporadically active until 2009. Based in San Francisco, Blue Cheer played in a psychedelic blues rock style, and are also credited as being some of the earliest pioneers of heavy metal, more.

They were actually a truly hard rock band then, not a typical pop band with heavy distortion... yes, they're ROCK artists. - somekindofaguy

5 Iron Butterfly Iron Butterfly Iron Butterfly is an American rock band best known for the 1968 hit "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida", providing a dramatic sound that led the way towards the development of hard rock and heavy metal music.
6 The Seeds The Seeds
7 Spirit Spirit

The career of Spirit's bassist Mark Andes should have been HOF all by itself. Besides the totally awesome Spirit itself, he was also in JoJo Gunne, Firefall, and Heart, enjoying massive success with each.
Spirit's founder and leader, Randy California died a hero, saving his 13 year old son from dangerous Hawaiian surf. However, in the early years, Randy's penchant for very young groupies was off-putting even for the time. The SJW powers-that-be would never stand for it. They are off the list permanently.

8 The Electric Prunes The Electric Prunes
9 The West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band The West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band
10 Thin Lizzy Thin Lizzy Thin Lizzy are an Irish rock band formed in Dublin in 1969.
