The RRHOF isn`t a popularity contest or an award for commercial success.If commercial success would be the main criteria for an induction into the RRHOF then you could simply put in the artists which have the highest sales in the end of each year. The result would be a RRHOF full of "artists" like Kelly Clarkson, Vanilla Ice, Paula Abdul, Huey Lewis & the News, Nickelback or the Hansons.For example: Velvet Underground experienced little commercial success. Brian Eno once said, "Only five thousand people ever bought a Velvet Underground album, but every single one of them started a band.

Kim Gordon, you mean. Although Deal has made a guest appearance with Sonic Youth. Can't remember the song but it was while the Breeders were "popular".

Like the list overall. Kind of estrogen-deprived, though.
