20 BANDS WHO SHOULD BE IN THE HALL

Here is a list that is sure to enrage every classic rock fan listening to the sound of my voice. Rolling Stone magazine, whose publisher, Jann Wenner, is co-founder of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, has put together a list that they are calling the "20 Classic Artists Still Not in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame."
