Here is a great nominee. With the music of John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown Band, Eddie and the Cruisers may have been Bruce Springsteen light, but it was part of a cult film that was really about the music. Considering this Hall of Fame is about the music, why not induct a fictitious band that wanted the music to matter! That makes it more of a legit nominee than 99 percent of the others on the ballot. We will also argue that Michael Pare lip-synched better than anyone else we have ever seen!
