The Top Ten
Absolutely love this band! The Wilson sisters prove time and again that they can still rock! They deserve to be inducted!
They are inducted too so please don't vote anymore. - Undistinguished

The Hollies (2010)
Cheap Trick (2016)
Electric Light Orchestra (2017) - Undistinguished
Journey is the greatest band ever. I don't understand why they are not in the Rock N Hall of Fame! Steve Perry has the most soulful voice and vocal range of any lead singer. I hope I'm lucky enough to meet him one day. Stefanie Nichols
They have to be there in the next few years. My fear is that steve perry and steve smith and greg rolli wont be there. - schwanie
they have so many great songs. they deserve to be there as much as many who are in. - jwileson

Even Metallica were affected by Iron Maiden, Iron Maiden is heavy metal, without them, heavy metal wouldn't exist, simple, they should be in rock n' roll hall of fame because they are the best!
Can't believe they aren't already there. Haven't heard metal poetry hear maiden
Why there are not in this list and moreover why they are not in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is beyond me...
Already in and so is kiss and I think iron maiden and heart
They 100% deserved to be in the hall of fame.
Their classic seven albums of the late 60s - early 70s, and to a lesser extent "Octave", "Long Distance Voyager" and "Strange Times" represent some of the best soft prog rock ever made. They are still touring and filling auditoria, which is surely worth recognition. Having said that, they would have done their cause some good and earned more respect by creating more new music (as a band, not solo efforts) of the sort of quality of those original albums, instead of apparently being content to keep touring and bashing out the oldies. They should also have got Mike Pinder back into the band long ago, as he was a vital contributor (in terms of songwriting, arranging, vocals, and keyboard/mellotron) to that unique, signature, often ethereal sound that won them so many admirers.
Their 'classic seven' albums of the 60s and 70s are some of the best, sophisticated prog rock ever made in my humble opinion. More to the point they were undeniably up there amongst the best of British rock bands, achieved world-wide success and recognition and sold millions of records all over the world.
One of the best bands ever. Still touring with their nucleus intact, and still rock the house. The nominating committee is a joke.
FINALLY!V 5 Comments
Yes was one of the most adventerous and inspirational bands who at the height of their popularity took substantial musical risks. They were musical pioneers influencing countless bands and individuals.
One of the most influential, genre-defining Symphonic Progressive rock bands.V 1 Comment
annoying guys said this band is not a great band, for me, they are a great band but those dreamers who said that to this band and other great bands should die. they should not be born because they are deaf and close minded to dif. kinds of beautiful music in the world and their masks and make-ups makes them cooler. - ronluna
These guys played a huge role in the glam metal scene and definitely should be in the rock and roll of fame right now.
by the way, a7x can't be in the hall of fame because their fist record isn't 25 years old yet.
KISS hands down 1973 to present ROCK ON MAN YEAH ROCK HALL INDUCT THIS BAND NEXT YEAR
They were inducted in 2014.Please don't vote. - UndistinguishedV 7 Comments
Influenced Metallica the most no question about that
Many of these bands deserved it. Yet they add Madonna in the hall of fame. She isn't even rock. Shame.
Better than this entire list
Should be #1. HOF is a joke until they're voted in.
They were THE band of the 80s to go see live. Certainly not the best technicians, but is that really what rock and roll is about? It's also about the legendary exploits of excess. Drugs, women, trouble and arrogance. Few if any could match their rap sheet. That's why they are the best.
No wonder they're breaking up after this tour. Can't get into the hall of fame. This should be a no brainer.
That one album alone...Paradise by the Dashboard light alone...Need I go on!
Bat Out of Hell Trilogy! STILL ROCKING TODAY! GRAMMY WINNER
This man deserves it more than most.
Dave wasn't invited in with Metallica when he wrote some songs!
The UK has blessed the boys from Jersey, you'd think the US would catch up soon
They should definitely be in. They have great shows and great music.
Why doesn' this website register votes?
Great band. Very talented musicians. Brought the horns out as featured instruments.
The original group should inducted! Ground breaking sound.
Inexcusable they haven't been inducted.
One of my personal favoritesV 2 Comments
How can they not be in yet? All of their hits, and creating The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway... not to mention three of their members having successful solo careers in their own right. - Darrell
Genesis and Heart are the only 2 bands on this list that I would care to see go to the RRHOF. Maybe Tommy James and the Shondells. The rest are just OK. One is a joke! (KISS)... And One is really nerve racking! (Rush). There are a lot of other bands that deserve to go more like The Guess Who, Bon Jovi, Black Sabbath, The Cure... Just to name a few.
Genesis ain't in yet? I cannot believe what I am seeing! Me and m dad both share a love for Genesis. They deserve it!V 1 Comment
Extremely talented and with very succesful albums
I don't care if these guys haven't been the same since Steve Clark died, they should be inducted!
Sir Ian Anderson is a genius. Tull have for over 40 years been commercially successful with 50+ million record sales, over 1,000 live concerts, 25+ albums and have a truly unique style that is continuously innovative and brilliant. Shame on the Hall of Fame for their most glaring oversight.
Possibly the single most influential band to emerge from the 80s Southern California punk scene. They have managed to achieve a level of commercial success that make them recognizable to the masses while continuing to be relevant. They've transcended punk and evolved into an American rock and roll treasure with appeal far beyond the punk genre. 30+ years in the business and they continue to reach new fans and inspire kids to make music. There are already rock hall of famers who will cite Social Distortion as an influence. That number will almost certainly grow as 90s alt and punk bands are inducted who were heavily influenced by Mike Ness and Social D. They are hugely influential but receive very little recognition for their contributions to rock and roll and that's a shame. Their nomination at the very least is long overdue.
Social D has been one of the most influential punk bands of all time. Over the years Mike Ness has shown his diversity by stepping into several genres. If any band deserves to be in the hall of fame, Social D is it.
These guys helped start the punk rock scene in LA come on! With out these guys we wouldn't have a lot of the punk rock that we have today!
They deserve to be there over Green Day. I still listend to Social D.V 1 Comment
