The first content that we ever put up on Notinhalloffame.com was our original Rock and Roll list ranking those who were not yet in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame but were worthy of consideration. It ranked 100 acts, and as we continued on we extended it to 500. Our eventual intent is to get to 1,000 and at present we now have 567 ranked. The selection of The Moody Blues, The Cars, Nina Simone, Bon Jovi and Dire Straits to the Hall means that they are removed and newly eligible acts now populate our list. Rankings of existing musicians have been altered based on your comments and votes. The new top 25 features: Radiohead takes over the top spot after being ranked #2. They were nominated last year in their first year of eligibility and it was widely speculated that they would get in but it should be only a matter of time. Kraftwerk returns to the number two rank after being #1 last year. The influential band has been nominated four times (2003, 2013, 2015 & 2017) and was our original number one selection when we put out our first list in 2010. Jethro Tull holds firm at #3. To the surprise of many, the British Progressive Rock band has never been nominated for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame despite being eligible for twenty-five years. The Smiths also held their spot at #4. This is the third year that they have been ranked this high and they were nominated in 2015 and 2016. Roxy Music is ranked #5 for the second year in a row. They have been eligible for the Hall since 1997. MC5 is ranked #6 for the third straight year. They have been nominated the last two years. Gram Parsons moves up one spot to #7, which is his highest ranking to date. He was nominated three times in 2002. 2004 & 2005. Willie Nelson drops down to #8. Nelson has never been nominated. New Order returns to the top 10 moving from up from #11. They also have never been nominated and have been ranked as high as #5. Judas Priest makes their first appearance in our top ten taking the #10 position after being ranked #13. The heavy metal pioneers also earned their first nomination last year after being eligible since 1999. The Cure moves up to #11 from #14,…

16. King Crimson http://www.notinhalloffame.com/rock-and-roll/39-36-king-crimson http://www.notinhalloffame.com/rock-and-roll/39-36-king-crimson 16.  King Crimson
Considering the amount of Progressive Rock bands on this list and the lack of Progressive Rock representation in the hall we have often wondered if any of them will ever get through. Despite the relatively high ranking we are giving King Crimson and the high regard they are held in many circles, this is likely not the band that will break down the door for the rest of the genre.
