126.  The Cult

There are some bands that seem poised to break through the stratosphere but for whatever reason just can’t. The Cult seems to be one of those bands that while although they were very successful; they just seemed to fall short of what many thought they could have been.

The Cult had gone through a few style changes and by 1985 they struck gold with their first big album, Love. With this album and their subsequent work they had the rare ability to crossover to multiple audiences. They drew from enough from earlier Metal acts to appeal to the Metal and Hard Rock set, they had enough Post Punk roots to draw in New Wave listeners and they were just mystical enough and had a touch enough of the gothic look to appeal to the “freak” set. Band infighting and an inability to reach the Grunge crowd kept curtailed their popularity in the 90’s. Had they found a way to do so, their chances for induction would likely be much stronger.

The Bullet Points

  • Eligible Since: Friday, 01 January 1999
  • Country of Origin: United Kingdom (England)
  • Why they will get in: Their run was solid and respected, and potentially not over yet.
  • Why they won't get in: As incredible as it would be if the rumors happen that they would open a Led Zeppelin reunion; openers in any stage are not indicative of a Hall worthy band.
  • Essential Albums: Love (1985)
    Electric (1987)
    Sonic Temple (1989)
    Ceremony (1991)
  • Our Five Favorite Songs as Chosen by Each Member of the NIHOF Committee: Rain (From Love, 1985)
    She Sells Sanctuary (From Love, 1985)
    Love Removal Machine (From Electric, 1987)
    Fire Woman (From Sonic Temple, 1989)
    Sweet Soul Sister (From Sonic Temple, 1989)
