I comment on this year's controversy hereand add my obligatory insomnia-fueled thoughts, which led to the inevitable question:
What bands/artists that aren't in the Rock Hall yet, should be?
Be realistic with your list (as much as I'd love to see The Fall in there, I understand that it ain't gonna happen in Cleveland) and try to keep it to five (the number inducted this year).
Explain your choices and feel free to challenge others in their nominees.
In case you've forgotten who's already in, check it here.

• Alice Cooper-And don’t forget to bring the surviving members of the original band, you right-wing motherfucker.
• The Stooges-Duh.
• Rush-The Hall could placate both the progressive rock contingency and the metalheads in one fell swoop with this one.
• Joy Division-Goth began here and there hasn’t been a band more black since.
