Smiths: Hall of Fame caliber?

I think the Smiths due for Hall of Fame nomination in the next few years. So, I was wondering what the congregation here thinks about their worthiness. A simple yes or no is fine to this question. Do the Smiths belong in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame?

Hell yes. I'd put them there for "The Queen Is Dead" alone.

Oh dear....do you know my answer to this? Hall of fame for what? Creating boring, uninspiring, drab and depressing music. Give me a break there are far more worthy bands out there than The Smiths, in fact there are probably a million and one acts that should go in before The Smiths!

Simple answer: Yes.

Still simple, but not as short of an answer: Of course they should be admitted. The amount of artists and people in general out there who have been influenced by the work of The Smiths is almost unmeasurable. The Smiths are certainly a band that will be, and absolutely deserves to be, given this kind of recognition. (not that they need it in any way)

Yep if ever I want a song to commit suicide to, then The Smiths would be right up there with Morrisey's depressing and whining voice!

well, if people REALLY feel compelled to slit their wrists while listening to a certain artist, then the listener might have some screws lose. I've listened to The Smiths and Morrissey a gazillion times and haven't thought about slitting my wrists.

you can admit the smiths to the hall of fame, but none of them will show up (ok maybe rourke and joyce may turn up, only cause they need the attention)

by the way, they should definatly be in
