If we expanded this to 1,000....

So....

Sometime ago, i tinkered with the idea of expanding this to 1,000.
If we do this, what acts are missing?

Gerry Rafferty?

499 to go...



Yeah this might take some time. Is every person that has ever been nominated but not been inducted on the list?

Yep.... something like that.

I have always had a soft spot for "Baker Street". It is a timeless classic...one that will never age. That in itself gets it a ranking in my eyes.

What about Hot Chocolate? Lots of hits, still known. Bigger in the U.K., but still....

Yeah. That makes 498 to go.

But I am honestly struggling to come up with names here. Maybe Darryl or Spheniscus have some ideas? Otherwise even if we came up with twenty or thirty artists, it would probably just be easier to edit the top 500 by adding and removing.

I also don't think people are going to read through a list of a 1000 artists. At least not in this current structure.

I think that you are right.... though i want to eventually add a tab where it is all shown alphabetically and possibly by year.

Darryl did an article here where he poked at others he thought was missed. He came up with a lot:

notinhalloffame.com/blogs/ddt-s-pop-flie...in-hall-of-fame-list

I think it will eventually hit 1,000, if for no other reason to make it more unique than it already is. At least we have that cornered!

That's a good evaluation from Darryl last year. If this list ever does get to 1000, it's likely just going to creep there with the additions of newly eligible artists over the years and not from 500 more we think of that are pre 25 years ago.

I endorse an alphabetical tab at some point. It'll make things so much easier for people stopping by to see where their favorite artist is ranked.

Easier navigation can't hurt!

Yes, there would be a lot of newer acts in it i think. I would wager more than most people would think. Hell, there are a lot of grunge acts alone that would jump in to that half of the 1,000.

I find it unfathomable that of the 500+ existing entries here, "Weird Al" Yankovic doesn't yet have one. Granted, he's much more famous for his parodies of other people's music than he is for his original material, but the man's been writing amazing stuff, releasing charting songs, performing on tour, doing movies and TV, writing books, directing videos for other artists, and much more, for over 35 years. For the last two decades, his songs have been virtually the only music with any humorous content that mainstream radio or video channels will ever play outside the context of the "morning shows." The man's an institution and deserves to be in the Hall.

I love Weird Al and if he doesn't have a spot on this list then I'm all for him getting one. Though I do wonder if his induction would just end up alienating artists. Granted Al has plenty of friends within the business and I'm sure some of them wouldn't mind his induction, but I could see the headlines to articles focusing on his induction over the likes of Deep Purple, Chicago, or Soundgarden.

If the Monkees ever beat the critics who say they weren't a true band and get inducted, it might open the door for someone like Weird Al.

This isn't the first time that Mr. Yankovic has been suggested here. Gentleman, when we expand, I can assure you that he will get a slot, and if the votes come in the way you suspect he will move up quickly.
