The Rock and Roll List has been Updated: Pearl Jam is now Number 1

Last month the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame announced their latest class for the Hall.

When that happens, we here at have chosen to waste no time at all as we are ready to unveil a revised list of those who should be considered for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame vote in 2016.

Here is how it works for us:

First off, we remove the acts that have been inducted.  For reference those were Deep Purple, Chicago, The Steve Miller Band, Cheap Trick and N.W.A.

Next, we add those who are now eligible for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for the 2016 Class.

The final criteria comes from all of you.  Your votes have an impact as to the ascension and decline of the Rock and Roll acts that are eligible.

With all of that being said, we here at are very happy to announce tbe Class for 2016 in regards to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.  

The new number one band is Pearl Jam, who are entering their first year of eligibility.  There is a solid reason to expect that the Seattle based band will enter immediately.  

The German group, Kraftwerk, returns at #2.  The Krautrock innovators have been ranked at the top in the past, and could very well be again.

The remaining Top Ten consists of #3. Jethro Tull, #4. Roxy Music, #5. The Smiths, #6. MC5, #7. Willie Nelson, #8. New Order, #9. Gram Parsons and at #10. John Coltrane

Pearl Jam are not the only new act that has entered our Rock and Roll list.

The late rapper 2pac is entering at #15.

Alternative singer, P.J. Harvey debuts at the #52 spot.

Alanis Morissette also debuts in the top 100 at #65.

The final act to enter the top 100 in their first year of eligibility are the British group, The Prodigy.

Other new entries include Aphex Twin (#115), Sterolab (#138), Tori Amos (#190), Cypress Hill (#239), Boyz II Men (#258), Mercury Rev (#295), Kyuss (#341), Helmet (#414) and The Cranberries at (#515).

You may notice that the Cranberries have debuted at #515.  We originally set out to have 500, but new entries have outdone the inductees, so we have elected to have an uneven number.

Stating that, by this summer we are looking to expand it to an even 1,000.

Why a grand?  Why not!

We would like to encourage you to vote and give us your comments.  They do matter as those do alter future rankings.

As always, we would like to thank you for your support.

RIP: Keith Flint

Keith Flint, the frontman of the influential band Prodigy was found dead inside his home in London today.  Police were doing a welfare check on Flint and it is believed at this time that he took his own life.  He was 49 only years old.  

Along with Liam Howlett, Maxim, Leeroy Thornhill and Sharky, Flint formed The Prodigy who formed during the rave scene of the 1990’s.  The underground group broke through to the mainstream in the mid-90’s and they were at the forefront of what would be called the Big Beat sound. They would have two number one hits in the United Kingdom with “Breathe” and Firestarter” and they had two albums reach the top, the latter being 1997’s “The Fat of the Land”, which was successful on an international level.

We here at would like to extend our condolences to the friends and family of Keith Flint at his time.

124. The Prodigy

The Prodigy were one of the most successful electronic bands of the 1990’s, but there were many who did not necessarily view them as electronic.
