Do the people at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame even know who the Smiths are?

Definately.

And how can The Smiths be ragged on for making depressing music when other well-respected acts like...oh, I don't know...say RADIOHEAD do the exact same thing?

But yes, The Smiths are great.

I say yes. I'd probably also say yes to Morrissey for his solo work.

Don't even compare The Smiths to Radiohead. Radioheads music may have a down feel to it but I would describe it as brilliantly crafted and beautiful music. The Smiths errrrrrr they made crap music!

Hell yeah, they should be inducted! They probably never will be though because most people in the U.S. except for music geeks don't even know who they are.

So does it change your opinion on Radiohead considering they pretty much ALWAYS name drop The Smiths as their favorite band/the band who most inspired their work. Crap, they've even admitted that 'Knives Out' was nothing more than them attempting to make a 'Smiths song'.

That being said, I wouldnt ever say that The Smiths are a "depressing band". They're much like The Cure in this aspect, it's a fairly ignorant generalization which seems to act like a good majority of both bands work doesnt exist. Yes, they do have a lot of "moody" songs, but they also have a lot of the opposite.

I like music.

The Smiths > Radiohead
No contest!

And yes, they should be considered for the Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame.

they deserve it, but it's not gonna happen. the r&r hall of fame is completely clueless. they've failed to induct black sabbath and the sex pistols (among others) yet they've inducted all the beatles (save poor ringo) separately for their respective godawful solo careers. its a meaningless honor anyway, fuck all the aging out-of-touch twats who do the selection.

!!!!!!! The Smiths deserve it if for no other reason than "How Soon is Now?".

(By the way, since I'm in the States & not only know who The Smiths are, but also own several of their albums & some of Morrisey's solo work -- does that mean I'm a music geek??? And why does the prospect of being a music geek make me extremely giddy??? )

Without doubt,one of the most origional bands ever.I thought Johnny marrs guitar playing was very jubilant and Moz's lyrics very witty and not depressing at all.I was lucky enough to see them live in middlesbrough on the queen is dead tour when i was 13 and they were incredible.Should without doubt be inducted.
