The early 60’s saw many all girl groups emerge, but none were quite like the Shangri-Las. Unlike their contemporaries, they were an all white group which could look so sweet and innocent yet they sang about bad boys and bad situations. Their image allowed them to appeal to both genders and gave them a credibility that was not seen in other girl groups at the time. Over time their image which was once deemed campy has only increased as they have been cited by numerous Punk bands as a great influence in look, attitude and sound. With that in consideration, they may have a decent shot to get into the Hall despite their very brief careers.
