The Chantels were very significant historically as they were among the first girl groups to chart with hit songs. They were not as successful (or as good, frankly) as many of the other girl groups that they set the stage for, but they did help to open that door, and they were good enough to get a look from the Hall. They have been nominated before, so their chances for a future induction are actually decent.
