History of Rock and Roll

For pretty much the past year, my labor of love has been to build a history of rock and roll out of my music collection. I've been using the rock and roll hall of fame as a rough guideline as to who the essential artists are that I should have in my playlist.

Anyone who knows the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame can see several flaws with this plan: 1) There is no representation of bands that are younger than 25 years old, and; 2) the voters of the Hall sometimes include questionable bands at the expense of others who are more deserving.

I thought I'd ask you all who are some bands that really deserve to be in the Hall but have been excluded and who are bands that will one day be in. (I'm looking for single artists as well, not just groups.) I appreciate your help!

Black Sabbath. But the only reason they're not in yet is because Ozzy refuses the nomination.

Either way. It's not because no one wants them in

I think you've got to include some bands that have had a huge influence on mainstream rock, but were never mainstream themselves.

--The Ramones. duh.
--The Clash and The Sex Pistols (who were nominated this year and holy shit being in the hall of fame is soooooooo un-punk rock)
--The Buzzcocks: The original pop-punk
--Wire & Joy Divison: asskicking punk & post-punk. Even U2 have cited these guys as influences.
--Sonic Youth: everyone who was successful in grunge cites these guys as their major influence, including Kurt Cobain and Eddie Vedder
--Minor Threat and Black Flag: influenced any and all modern punk bands. Ian MacKaye of MT inadvertantly started the whole straitedge movement, Black Flag started LA hardcore and launched Henry Rollins (although he wasn't an original member)

Those are just a few, but there are lots more. A good reference for you is this book called "Our Band Could Be Your Life" which basically chronicles the development of indie rock through the histories of 13 different bands, including some of the ones I named, and also the Minutemen, Mission of Burma, Mudhoney, and a bunch of others.

Good luck with that project!!

Why isn't Van Halen in the Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame? Aerosmith is in but not Van Halen? Just wondering.

They were? That makes me ill.

Whatever happened to yee olde punk aesthetic???
I don't really follow the rock hall that closely (obviously), but I'm sure MRR had a coronary when that happened. Either way, 2 very important bands.

Oh yeah, and I guess the Velvet Underground and New York Dolls should also be included in said history of rock.

Also, Morton Subotnik (see Silver Apples of the Moon) for pioneering electronic music, and Terry Riley and Phil Niblock for minimalism.
