If you listened to the teeny bop efforts of early Alanis, you would never think that there would be any serious discussion for her to enter the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.  Her reinvention as an Alternative feminist Singer/Songwriter was the launch of the most successful female solo careers of all time.  Her appeal became universal and millions of woman identified with her and millions of men were afraid to scorn her.  She is not eligible for the Hall for another few years and chances are she has a lot of great music left in her to help bolster her argument for induction.

She'll definitely receive a nomination.

She will get in on the strength of the phenomenon that was Jagged Little Pill back in '95, but it has to be said, her work since then has been vomit-inducing.
