341.  Them

Many a British Invasion act is in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and many others of that ilk are on this list. Although Them was packaged as a British Invasion band, chances are they never saw themselves that way.

Fronted by current Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductee, Van Morrison, Them cut their teeth on R&B infused Rock in the British pubs. With a driving Garage Rock sound, Them made the most of the brief time they were together. The two albums they put out with Morrison became staples of Garage Rock and their hit Gloria is strong enough to induct them alone. Although they disbanded after two albums, the legacy they left behind was a great one and did launch the career of Morrison. The question here is whether the Hall feels to need to induct Morrison a second time, or whether they feel they have already honored him sufficiently. As they have been eligible for twenty years and have yet to receive a nomination we suspect we already know the answer.
