136. Tool
Although it has certainly been seen that Metal is struggling to find a solid place in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, it will be interesting to see what they do with Tool who by no means was a traditional Metal band.  Tool added Post Punk and Progressive styles and with dark imagery (both in videos and in lyrics) this was a band that was intelligent as they were “depressing”.  The Artistic elements that they used works in their favor for any potential induction, but if they are lumped primarily as a Metal band, then their chances will greatly diminish.

Should be much higher, all four musicians are incredible and their music is unique and creative.
