Bands/people that absolutely positively should be in the RnR HOF but aren't

Phish. Say what you want about their music, but no one can deny their massive fan base, tour profits, and impressive repertoire.

I think Phish might not have been eligible yet. Junta was released on cassette only in May of 1989, right on the cusp of the 25 year requirement. I bet they get inducted sooner rather than later. They've got the flying hot dog suspended over the lobby, and some other Phish memorabilia in other places in the hall. So they're definitely a presence there if not actually signed on the wall yet.

Rolling Stone loves Phish, I think they'd get in quickly, once eligible. Rightfully so.

Chicago totally rocked, far more than 20 yr inductee Madonna

Amen - anyone in doubt only needs to check out say, the first 10 albums or so.

Chicago was founded as a hard rock band with horns, and that is precisely what it was while Kath was alive.

Sure, some of their later stuff is ballad-heavy, but they sold a TON of vinyl, and they are LONG overdue for that POS known as the R&R HOF.

I am a hard rocker/metal guy but my wife wanted to go see Chicago this summer. They completely blew me away. I could not stop watching. The level of musicianship and the complexity of the parts all working together was impressive.
