Alternative Rock Acts That Should Enter into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
There are hundreds of bands that could be classified as an alternative rock ensemble. Unfortunately, only a select few of these bands have what it takes to become legends and furthermore to enter the “Rock & Roll Hall of Fame”. This is a prestigious location for fans of the rock genre, it showcases where some of their beloved artists became embodied into music history for life.
We’ve compiled a list that we feel best evaluates which bands should currently be up for possibly entering the hall of the fame. Bands like the Red Host Chili Peppers, the Beastie Boys, Nirvana and Green Day have all entered the rock n’ roll hall of fame but there need to be new additions into the hall of fame. Here are a few suggestions.
James Addiction is the first band we believe that should have been inducted. The band should have been inducted before Nirvana or Green Day as they paved the ways for punk bands all across the globe. They were one of the first fans to be brought into MTV Rotation.
Moby, he is one of the most beloved artists of the 90’s and early 2000’s. There is no denying the impact he had on a generation of individuals. Many would say he created the electronic dance music scene and put a face to a faceless music. He was one of the most played artists on MTV of the last decade and he has sold more than five thousand shows completely out. He has incorporated rock n’ roll, gospel and even pop music into his sound to make it more unique. The end result was a career that still to this day has Moby selling out shows across the globe. He should be inducted into the hall of fame immediately.
The Cure is hands down one of the best rock n’ roll bands in history. Almost everyone has heard of the band since they arrived on the scene back in the 80’s. They’ve combined multiple artists into their own including the Ramones, the Sex Pistols, the Clash, Blondie, Talking Heads, Green Day, Nirvana, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Jimmy Hendrix. This allowed for the cure to create a sound that was familiar but had never quite been heard before. Over the years their fan base grew to such expediential heights that they were not just selling out venues but they were selling out entire tours. They’ve toured Africa, North America, Asia, and Europe. Still to this day their one of the most popular bands in history and should be inducted immediately.
These are three bands that aren’t just worthy of being in the hall of fame for rock n’ roll but are deserving of it for all that they’ve done for music. Unfortunately, those who operate the board tend to choose individuals they personally prefer, overlooking the rest of the artists who are deserving. This has lead to dozens of musicians who effected their genre equally not to receive any recognition.
