189. Massive Attack
Though they may have despised the term “Trip Hop”, there is little doubt that the English duo which comprised England’s Massive Attack was the originator of that genre.  With a Hip Hop, Soul, Dub mix a hypnotic Dance sound was created that was amongst the most influential of its time.  The Trip Hop sound exploded through the 90’s and its effect is widely heard in lounges and clubs today.  Their influence is undeniable but the question is whether or not the Hall feels that the music they pioneered is worthy of their establishment.
