The Damned/Iron Maiden.

Maiden have sold over 90 million albums and I doubt they'll ever be in there. And the Damned are - well, the Damned. Magnificent.

The Cure and the Banshees are punk?

Along the lines of Iron Maiden and Judas Priest (which I agree with) I would add Scorpions and UFO. All of those could be labeled as Hard Rock, but I too tend to classify them as early Metal.

For me, as much as I loved every he did, Dio is a tough call unless he is going to be put in alone as pseudo solo artist. Stints were too short in actual bands he sang for over the years (Elf, Sabbath, Rainbow). And the albums that carried his name were never really long term bands.

Maiden, while never really being radio friendly, have been consistently popular worldwide for decades. I'd say Scorpions would fit too. They were huge here in the early 80's/90's. Priest in the metal world is toe to toe with Maiden, but I think recognition drops off even quicker once yo get to the "mainstream". UFO in the hall simply won't happen, no matter how much Eddie Trunk wishes it to be so.

Can't speak for punk, as except for my old Dead Kennedys albums, I've pretty much given up on low-fi music.

What do most people know of the Judas Priest and Scorpions catalog that isn't the mainstream? Of the songs from the early years to survive beyond those early years, two were remakes. And the RCA era of the Scorpions was barely as known as those first few Priest albums.

Depends how loosely you want to define "punk."

The Cure, Banshees, Joy Division, Bauhaus, New Order, Echo & The Bunnymen, Damned, and other new wave/post-punk bands of the 80s would all fall under the same movement as late 70s punk.

Most of the groups that could be structly defined as punk didn't last long enough or make enough of a commercial impact to rate much more than a footnote in history.

The big ones ... Sex Pistols, Ramones, and Clash... are already in. After that, maybe the Dead Kennedys?

If were going that loose, I would vote for The Cars before any of the other "loose punk"bands listed. I would rate the Talking Heads higher, but they are already in.

Yes and Yes to Sonic Youth. It will never happen.

I actually agree. Just going along with the others.

I didn't post mine when I started the thread. But this for me as well.

The Misfits will be a tough one because they were more of a cult/underground band in late 70's to early 80'. They were lucky if 100 people showed up to one of their gigs, now everyone loves them.

I'm also partial to X as well as The Dead Boys

Minor Threat / Slayer

This thread needs a whole lot more mentions of Black Flag.

I tried to think of something but the idea of a "punk" act being put into a pretentious museum seems like the antithesis of punk. At least Johnny Rotten had the right idea when the Sex Pistols were inducted.

New Model Army/Queensr˙che

I wouldn't call Yes heavy metal

Yeah, they were a band that got bigger after they broke up. Not sure if that would disqualify them though.

The Dead Boys

I'm not a huge fan of a lot of their songs, but my god, "Sonic Reducer" is a monster, that song alone should get them in.

In the "Never gonna happen" category for metal bands, I've recently been on a Diamond Head kick, holy crap, they were so ahead of their time. Far from a "glaring omission" but I'd certainly vote them in.

After The Damned my next choices would be the godfathers of hardcore punk : Black Flag and Bad Brains.

I'd like to hear what Jello Biafra would have to say while standing on their stage. I doubt that the museum would risk it.

I don't pay any attention to the RnR HOF except for the annual mockery of their selections. But I am surprised that Maiden and Priest aren't already in there.
