Joy Division/New Order
Rage Against the Machine
A Tribe Called Quest
The White Stripes
I would say all of them are worthy of induction… maybe not in their first year, though. If I had to pick 5 of them I would go with Kate Bush, Iron Maiden, Joy Division/New Order, Soundgarden and A Tribe Called Quest.
Cyndi Lauper, definitely. Not only a terrific musician, but the WWE got mainstream popularity which was the foundation of their consistent success to this day in no small part thanks to her involvement with the company.
A bit torn. All 14 there have valid reasons to be considered.
There are 3 first ballot options IMO:
Kate Bush, Iron Maiden, Joy Division/New Order
Of the remaining nominees, there’s 5 I’d prefer the remaining ones be picked from but all of that list are deserving of being there.
Missy Elliott, Cyndi Lauper, RATM, Soundgarden & Warren Zevon
The last 6, again deserve to be in, but I wouldn’t complain if they were omitted at this time.
And even thou I put Willie in that bottom 6, there is part of me that wonders how he isn’t already in.
