During the embryonic stage of the New York Punk scene, Television became the first Rock band of any kind to play at CBGB’s which became the focal point of Punk. They were technically sound and their lead and rhythm guitar work were revered in music circles for their complexity and improvisation. Although they never moved beyond cult status in North America they became commercially successful in Europe influencing much of the Post Punk scene that followed. Their main album (Marquee Moon) continues to be revered and the chances of Television likely lie on the strength and legacy of that album. It hasn’t helped them get inducted thus far, but a band considered critical to Punk’s evolution has an outside shot for induction.
