67.  Thin Lizzy

For a country with such a small population, the rich musical history of Ireland is an extensive one. Our first representative from the Emerald Isle is the Hard Rock band, Thin Lizzy; though it may surprise some casual fans that Thin Lizzy was even Irish.

Thin Lizzy bordered on Metal tendencies with their dual guitar attack but their main source of appeal was their working class lyrics. It was perfect music to listen to at the pub with your friends while downing a frosty beverage or two. Their lyrics although inspired by an Irish lower class lifestyle still resonated on both sides of the Atlantic and with a multi ethnic lineup they were a rarity in rock circles at the time. Considered now as an underrated band in revisionism, they may get into the Hall, but they are likely to have to wait until other Hard Rock bands from their era get in first.

The most influential rock band not in the HOF. THEY RELEASED great music for 12 years. lizzy influenced all the great metal bands, MAIDEN, METALLICA. since Madonna was inducted, the HOF lost any relevance in my eyes.

Thin Lizzy were definitely influential, and they've got a strong fanbase to this day, and both Phil Lynnott and Gary Moore (rest their souls) were Rock Gods. But, truth be told, they were only really popular for a brief time in the 70's, and then Phil Lynnott died and they dissolved. There's definitely a strong case to put Thin Lizzy in the Hall Of Fame, but I have to agree that there's other deserving bands ahead of them.

one of the greatest true rock bands ever. Their only downside is longevity but within that their legacy has done well. One legendary album and a satchel full of classic rock standards. Phil Lynnott was a genius and died way too early of drug dependency. This band deserves to be in but as you say so do many other from the classic rock genre and haven't even got a sniff. Travesty.
