The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is a great honor for any musician. The idea of singling out rock royalty to show their impact on the culture is very respectable...most of the time.
Over the years, many fine acts have been brought into the Hall of Fame, but many fantastic acts have not been on the nomination ballot or outright ignored by the Hall. While there is a limit to how many people can go in at one time, some bands that have slipped through the tracks have etched their name into rock history with their records.
Granted, there are guidelines to the Hall. The Hall of Fame has a certain waiting period for acts like those of sports stars. The band's first recorded output has to have been out for at least 25 years before they are looked at for consideration. Regardless of time, many bands have revolutionized the rock genre and have not been recognized for it.
As we move closer to this year's induction ceremony, let's take a look at 10 great acts who have been snubbed by the Hall but have certainly earned their place in rock history.
I'm just a junkie for all things media. Whether it's music, movies, TV, or just other reviews, I absolutely adore this stuff. But music was my first love, and I love having the opportunity to share it with you good people.
