2024 Rock Eligibles

Eligible in 2024 (He had a recorded singles in 1999), 50 Cent exploded onto the Rap and Mainstream charts and for the year of 2003 could be considered the biggest musical star in the world. Despite his Hardcore East Coast Rap style, 50 Cent was at the right place and the right time to become a major star. Although his later albums did not reach the…
The Zakk Wylde led Black Label Society has one major intangible: Zakk Wylde.   Wylde is beloved in Metal circles and as such, his project automatically gained him an automatic fan base. However, as watchers of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame are very much aware that the musical genre of Heavy Metal is not exactly respected by them, and as such we don’t see any…
More of a hybrid of Country and Southern Rock than most people realize, Brad Paisley was labeled as a Country star, though he seemed to have more qualities that resembled Lynyrd Skynyrd than other Traditional Country Acts. Regardless, Paisley is in the same boat as many other New Country stars in that unless the old Country Superstars get in, it does matter how much “Rock” credibility…
A bit of a Late 90’s/Early 00’s Hard Rock Throwback, Buckcherry was a Rock band that seemed to hit the big time a few years too late to be big. The band had a few hits, and could very well have a few more, but unless that happens they won’t have much a chance for Cleveland.   The Bullet Points:Eligible Since: 2024 Country of Origin: U.S.A.…
A band that is constantly compared to (or in the shadow of) Tool, Chicago’s Chevelle was a decent Hard Rock band in their own right. Dark and brooding, though very talented, the band also has been compared to by Helmet (by themselves too) and with constant comparisons to those two higher profile acts, it is next to impossible to see them inducted.   The Bullet Points:Eligible…
We think it is a safe assumption that those looking at this page would agree that Chris Cornell best chance (and the most appropriate) for induction would be as a member of Soundgarden. With that statement aside, Chris Cornell does have a few good solo albums under his belt but we doubt that Cornell is a potential double induction candidate   The Bullet Points:Eligible Since: 2024…
Christina Aguilera may not exactly be a Rock Star, but the American siren has a more powerful voice and more hits than 99 percent of the acts we discuss on the site. Will that translate into a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction? A lot of that depends on what she does in the 2010’s and beyond, but our current guess is no.   The…
A somewhat polarizing band, CKY (Camp Kill Yourself) has managed to find a level of success with their version of Alternative Metal. They have a very rabid fan base, but as it is relatively small (as evidenced by their record sales, and past positions in music festivals) does not exactly equate to a Hall of Fame birth.   The Bullet Points:Eligible Since: 2024 Country of Origin:…
A Hip Hop duo who achieved modest success, Clipse continued the East Coast Gangsta Rap scene. Thus far they are reasonably known in the Rap community, but not anywhere else. Rappers are (and will continue to enter the Hall) but those that do must have some level of crossover success; which Clipse has yet to do.   The Bullet Points:Eligible Since: 2024 Country of Origin: U.S.A.…
One of the biggest darlings of the world of Indie Rock in the last twenty years, Death Cab for Cutie slowly built up a massive audience with a soft and bittersweet style that played with the emotional heart strings of their listeners. Coincidently, the love that they received from the Indie fans was completely rejected by another segment of the American population who seemed to reject…
Getting her break from Eminem who sampled one of her songs, Dido’s soft and heartfelt songs were propelled to the mainstream. This did give Dido a large audience, but a reflection of her overall work may see her best as a featured performer in other artist’s works as opposed to her own. This is not a knock on her own music, but this seems to be…
We suspect that there is a lot more to the story of Leslie Feist to be written, and should that follow the current path, she might make the Hall of Fame. Of course, our guess is the Canadian Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the not the more popular one. Kidding aside, along with Broken Social Scene, Feist is a very respected Adult Alternative musician…
Another excellent Heavy Metal band, Godsmack may draw more from Grunge than from the Metal superstars of the decade prior. Appealing to straight up Metal fans and Alternative connoisseurs, the Boston based group has carved out a very successful career for themselves and if the Hall ever truly decided to recognize the Metal genre, they would one day have a decent shot for induction.   The…
Another Emo band that had more critical respect than the ones that made it big, Hot Rod Circuit may have also been a lyrically more sophisticated than their peers. With that said, there is a chance that a group labeled as Emo will get into the Hall, but that band will be more commercially successful than Hot Rod Circuit.   The Bullet Points:Eligible Since: 2024 Country…
Although Ja Rule was one of the most successful Rappers in terms of sales in the first half of the 00’s, he is probably best known for the feuds he has had with Hip Hop stars of even greater stature (and we aren’t just making a pun about his height). As long as this stays the case, and until the first thing you think of with…
