Yeah, i wish! Gary Clark, Jr. is there too, who I didn't even nominate (like his EP, but figured it's a bit premature to vote him "best" anything). Plus Black Sabbath? That would work.

A lot of those same acts -- Chili Peppers, Jack White, the AL Shakes, and I think Gary Clark, Jr. PLUS Neil Young and Steve Earle (two of my older favorites) are playing ACL fest, which is MUCH closer to home for me (my backyard, really), but man dem tickets cost a lotta bucks.

I'm trying to think of one of these bands that will matter in 10 years, and while I hold out hope for Raconteurs (if they'll ever get together to do a 3rd album), none of the rest give me much cause to think they will matter in 2020, or even 2015.

So you're saying that Franz Ferdinand won't make it to the RnR Hall before Rush or Purple?

And who is Cage the Elephant?
Mitt Romney-vocals
Herman Cain-bass
Newt Gingrich-flute
Rick Santorum-diaphram
Sarah Palin-drumz
Ted Nugent-guitar

----

I'm not saying that at all. I mean, Madonna went in before Cheap Trick, so there's why wouldn't they put Franz Ferdinand in before Rush or Purple? I half expect William Hung to get in before Rush.

@zlh67: Rush will probably *never* get into the RnR HOF. They've been stubborn about Deep Purple, too, but I have a feeling they'll get in eventually (especially with the passing of key members like Jon Lord...the more people in a group die, the more the HOF seems to consider an induction).

I'm not a Madonna fan by any means, but I think it was appropriate for her to get in before Cheap Trick. She's carved out a level of iconicism for herself that--no matter what you think of her music--is several levels removed from whatever Cheap Trick can have claimed to have done.

These are the rock bands big in the 2000s I think have a good shot of eventually being inducted into the RnRHOF:

Radiohead
The Strokes
The White Stripes
Arcade Fire
Coldplay
Queens Of The Stone Age
