5 bands that belong in Rock's Hall of Fame



Duran_duran Kiss, Genesis, Duran Duran, Rush and Neil Diamond. What do they all have in common? They're music visionaries AND they're not in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.'s Mike Raymond has named those acts as his "why the hell are they not in the hall" list. They'd all get my vote too, if the hall bothered to ask. Truth be told, I don't think I'd take the time to set foot in the Cleveland-based museum until they figured out how to justify how Madonna gets in before any of those five bands listed above.

Meanwhile, Raymond's readers had their own suggestions for must-inductions to the hall: Roxy Music, Depeche Mode, New Order, The Zombies, Kraftwerk and more.

You can find the full list of hall inductees here. What other '80s bands are missing? (Keep in mind, to be nominated, 25 years must have passed since a band's first recording.)
