Imagine having a Rock Hall of Fame and not having put Thin Lizzy in the fucking thing decades ago. Ditto Motorhead.

It's the Hall of FAME, not the Hall of Pretty Damned Important. I may be from Detroit, but I'm going to say the MC5 have no business being so honoured. Meaning they're a shoe-in.  Thin Lizzy is the Irish clone of MC5.  So out.  Only one of this genre per year. 
I'll take umbrage with msc above, because there's no way MC5 and Motorhead are both going in at the same time, and despite my earlier statement the Macomb County 5 deserve it well before Lemmy.
They shouldn't put bands in who are still relevant (read NIN).  But that isn't a litmus test, and NIN wildly popular and the 'new wave/punk' entry for sure (sorry Depeche Mode),
They'll put Whitney in as the black artist (the other two are a joke).  This also covers the token female artist, Benetar OUT.
Doobies are a lock.
Rundgren the exact kind of 'critics' artist that gets a nod undeserved.  
TRex the best band in the lot, prolly no chance.  Like MC5, influential as hell, but weren't a commercial jaggarnaut.  That is important.  Kraftwerk checks the boxes.  But not with NIN going in.

IN: MC5, Whitney, Doobies, Rundgren, NIN.

It’s weird cause I never would’ve guessed that both Roxy Music and The Cure would be inducted into the hall of fame last year. So I’m not really sure what to expect this year tbh...

Also, they inducted 7 names last year

Yeah they induct 5-7 acts per year.  So if I'm adding a 6th above it's Kraftwerk.  I don't think they'll feel compelled to have 7 entries.

The 2020 inductees 

 

 

T. Rex - 'bout time, frankly and a wake up call to the BRIT Awards

 

That said the classic four piece is down to one survivor - Bill Fyfield - aka Bill Legend, the drummer

 

Tony Visconti - producer of most of the hits that mattered and Gloria Jones (Bolan's girlfriend and a sometime member of the band) are both alive and obitable

The next few years of "eligible for RnR HoF" names (and presumably inductions) are going to be hell for us xennials in terms of making us feel old as fuck. Jay-Z is eligible this year. Eminem eligible next year. Missy Elliott in 2022. And then in 2023 Britney Spears, Coldplay and Queens of the Stone Age are all inductible.

FFS. Still no Sparks. 

 

No Siouxsie and the Banshees either, and this Hall ain't big enough for the both of them...
