yes of course they should be let in, one of the best bands EVER. Radiohead aren't fit to polish their boots.

that last sentence was just for rjhbonovox

Are The Cure in the hall of fame?

If not, and I don't think they are, they should definitely get in before The Smiths. They have been around as long as U2...

Maybe it's because they could only induct Robert Smith...since there has been a lot of revolving members.

First off, I completely agree about the wit and jubilant guitars. I also agree that their sound was EXTREMELY original and influential for their time (Johnny Marr was doing the whole jangly guitar thing years before REM was around....)

Secondly, I WORSHIP YOU!!! You freaking saw The Smiths live in concert, that is flat out amazing. Seriously, I cant even begin to describe my jealousy and awe. Awesome

What IS the policy for bands with so many different members? Do they all get inducted? The ones that have been around the longest?

Do the Gallagher Bros. like the Smiths?

By the way, How Soon is Now

Smiths can be depressing, for sure, but they also wrote some of the funniest songs ever.

"So I walked into the palace
With a sponge and a rusty spanner
She said, "Eh, I know you and you cannot sing",
I said, "That's nothing - you should hear me play piano!"

Or

"And now I know how Joan of Arc felt,
Now I know how Joan of Arc felt,
As the flames rose to her roman nose
And her hearing aid started to melt"

The beauty of having a sister who is 8 years older and used to drag me along to gigs from the age of 9!

I believe Noel is very friendly with Johnny Marr and a big fan of his guitar style.Apparently Johnny was jamming with Oasis in his studio and came up with the riff to Hindu Times which he just let them have!

They would get in a Hall Of Shame for making some of the dreariest music of all time.
