    Has Rage been on this list before? Seems out of place.

    Would love for Radiohead to get inducted, even if they don’t want it. Kind of bummed that NIN didn’t go up for their second nom...

    There's a handful of these listed that I'm kind of stunned aren't in it already.

    All worthy winners

    Personal bias but Rage and Radiohead for their influence for me. Thats not to say they arent all influential i just think both bands were pretty groundbreaking.

    First timers, there's a certain amount of years that need to pass before they put you on. I think they'll be a shoe in.

    I think it's 25 years after your first single/album.

    Sighh, every year I hope to see Toto on these lists...but never. The band is bout to be freakin 40 years old!
    Clearly they have something against the band.

    The musicians that make up Toto have been so influential, but nobody knows it.
    They are all legendary, Lukather especially..he alone has played on 1,000+ albums.
    My hope is to see Toto inducted in to the rock & roll hall of fame while the last of them are still alive.

    While most people only know about their hits "Africa" and "Hold The Line", they are SO much more than that.
    They are still kickin' it touring, but of course they are huge overseas and not here in the US...which sadly means since no one knows they still exist..Toto will never make it in. They sure deserve a spot.

    Mini rant done.

    They could have a shot in the next few years but then you have bands like The Smiths, Maiden, Nine Inch Nails, and Motley Crue that will probably get a nomination before them.
