2. Oasis

Sooner or later, a BritPop band will find a representative in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.  While there have been some very important groups that debuted before Oasis the odds are strong that this is the band that will go in first.

Drawing multiple comparisons to the Beatles, Oasis was the leading band in terms of BritPop success.  What will work in their favor, as that they were able to conquer American charts as well as the British ones, and as much as that should not be the deciding factor, the reality is that a non-American act has to conquer the U.S. market to get into the Hall.  It also does not hurt that the brothers Gallagher were critical darlings everywhere and there are now many acts that site them as an influence.  

Oasis has the resume to get inducted and they could accomplish that within a few years of their eligibility year.

The Bullet Points

  • Eligible Since: Tuesday, 01 January 2019
  • Country of Origin: United Kingdom (Manchester, England)
  • Why they will get in: Criteria wise, there is no box they don’t check off.
  • Why they won't get in: Can you see the Gallaghers attending?  This is starting to matter more and more based on the recent actions of the Hall.
  • Nominated in: Never
  • Essential Albums: Definitely Maybe (1994)
    (What’s the Story) Morning Glory? (1995)
    Be Here Now (1997)
    Standing on the Shoulder of Giants (2000)
  • Our Five Favorite Songs as Chosen by Each Member of the NIHOF Committee: Supersonic (From Definitely Maybe, 1994)

    Morning Glory (From (What’s the Story) Morning Glory?, 1995)
    Don’t Look Back in Anger (From (What’s the Story) Morning Glory?, 1995)
    D’You Know What I Mean (From Be Here Now, 1997)

First ballot. Of the last 20 years only Radiohead and Nirvana have been as good.
