A band known for its musical diversity, Fishbone was a pioneering Funk Metal band that incorporated Ska based elements into their music. They came out of the same set that produced the Red Hot Chili Peppers, but they struggled to get the same type of attention. They did get a taste of larger success with the Alternative boom, but they quickly went back to being a solid band with a devoted fan base that is happy to keep them away from the mainstream.

Fishbone should get on based off their live performances alone.Very innovative band, mixed (and continues to mix as they are still around) various styles and do them all well.They are also one of the best live acts of all time. Criminally underrated band and while I certainly don't expect it to ever happen, would be thrilled if The Hall came knocking at some point.
