Eligible in 2024 (He had a recorded singles in 1999), 50 Cent exploded onto the Rap and Mainstream charts and for the year of 2003 could be considered the biggest musical star in the world. Despite his Hardcore East Coast Rap style, 50 Cent was at the right place and the right time to become a major star. Although his later albums did not reach the success of his 2003 effort, it was frankly incomprehensible to think he could. The man born as Curtis Jackson has a great chance to add to his musical success and as Rap has been embraced into the Hall of Fame, 50 Cent could be added to Cleveland depending on how his discography develops in the next ten years.

Black Label Society https://www.notinhalloffame.com/rock-and-roll/the-rock-and-roll-futures/2024-rock-eligibles/2211-black-label-society https://www.notinhalloffame.com/rock-and-roll/the-rock-and-roll-futures/2024-rock-eligibles/2211-black-label-society Black Label Society
The Zakk Wylde led Black Label Society has one major intangible: Zakk Wylde.   Wylde is beloved in Metal circles and as such, his project automatically gained him an automatic fan base. However, as watchers of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame are very much aware that the musical genre of Heavy Metal is not exactly respected by them, and as such we don’t see any real chance for the Black Label Society to enter the Hall; despite the Zakk Wylde effect.

Brad Paisley https://www.notinhalloffame.com/rock-and-roll/the-rock-and-roll-futures/2024-rock-eligibles/2212-brad-paisley https://www.notinhalloffame.com/rock-and-roll/the-rock-and-roll-futures/2024-rock-eligibles/2212-brad-paisley Brad Paisley
More of a hybrid of Country and Southern Rock than most people realize, Brad Paisley was labeled as a Country star, though he seemed to have more qualities that resembled Lynyrd Skynyrd than other Traditional Country Acts. Regardless, Paisley is in the same boat as many other New Country stars in that unless the old Country Superstars get in, it does matter how much “Rock” credibility that they have as they under the eight ball for Cleveland consideration.

A bit of a Late 90’s/Early 00’s Hard Rock Throwback, Buckcherry was a Rock band that seemed to hit the big time a few years too late to be big. The band had a few hits, and could very well have a few more, but unless that happens they won’t have much a chance for Cleveland.

Chevelle https://www.notinhalloffame.com/rock-and-roll/the-rock-and-roll-futures/2024-rock-eligibles/2214-chevelle https://www.notinhalloffame.com/rock-and-roll/the-rock-and-roll-futures/2024-rock-eligibles/2214-chevelle Chevelle
A band that is constantly compared to (or in the shadow of) Tool, Chicago’s Chevelle was a decent Hard Rock band in their own right. Dark and brooding, though very talented, the band also has been compared to by Helmet (by themselves too) and with constant comparisons to those two higher profile acts, it is next to impossible to see them inducted.

Chris Cornell https://www.notinhalloffame.com/rock-and-roll/the-rock-and-roll-futures/2024-rock-eligibles/2215-chris-cornell https://www.notinhalloffame.com/rock-and-roll/the-rock-and-roll-futures/2024-rock-eligibles/2215-chris-cornell Chris Cornell
We think it is a safe assumption that those looking at this page would agree that Chris Cornell best chance (and the most appropriate) for induction would be as a member of Soundgarden. With that statement aside, Chris Cornell does have a few good solo albums under his belt but we doubt that Cornell is a potential double induction candidate

Christina Aguilera https://www.notinhalloffame.com/rock-and-roll/the-rock-and-roll-futures/2024-rock-eligibles/2216-christina-aguilera https://www.notinhalloffame.com/rock-and-roll/the-rock-and-roll-futures/2024-rock-eligibles/2216-christina-aguilera Christina Aguilera
Christina Aguilera may not exactly be a Rock Star, but the American siren has a more powerful voice and more hits than 99 percent of the acts we discuss on the site. Will that translate into a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction? A lot of that depends on what she does in the 2010’s and beyond, but our current guess is no.

A somewhat polarizing band, CKY (Camp Kill Yourself) has managed to find a level of success with their version of Alternative Metal. They have a very rabid fan base, but as it is relatively small (as evidenced by their record sales, and past positions in music festivals) does not exactly equate to a Hall of Fame birth.

A Hip Hop duo who achieved modest success, Clipse continued the East Coast Gangsta Rap scene. Thus far they are reasonably known in the Rap community, but not anywhere else. Rappers are (and will continue to enter the Hall) but those that do must have some level of crossover success; which Clipse has yet to do.

Death Cab for Cutie https://www.notinhalloffame.com/rock-and-roll/the-rock-and-roll-futures/2024-rock-eligibles/2219-death-cab-for-cutie https://www.notinhalloffame.com/rock-and-roll/the-rock-and-roll-futures/2024-rock-eligibles/2219-death-cab-for-cutie Death Cab for Cutie
One of the biggest darlings of the world of Indie Rock in the last twenty years, Death Cab for Cutie slowly built up a massive audience with a soft and bittersweet style that played with the emotional heart strings of their listeners. Coincidently, the love that they received from the Indie fans was completely rejected by another segment of the American population who seemed to reject the force-feeding of the band down their throats by the music press. Regardless of how you may feel about the band, this is certainly one of the best Indie success stories in decades; we just don’t know whether that accolade means anything in terms of the Hall of Fame

Dido https://www.notinhalloffame.com/rock-and-roll/the-rock-and-roll-futures/2024-rock-eligibles/2220-dido https://www.notinhalloffame.com/rock-and-roll/the-rock-and-roll-futures/2024-rock-eligibles/2220-dido Dido
Getting her break from Eminem who sampled one of her songs, Dido’s soft and heartfelt songs were propelled to the mainstream. This did give Dido a large audience, but a reflection of her overall work may see her best as a featured performer in other artist’s works as opposed to her own. This is not a knock on her own music, but this seems to be where she has been at her best. If that perception is accurate, what legitimate Hall of Fame chance is there?

We suspect that there is a lot more to the story of Leslie Feist to be written, and should that follow the current path, she might make the Hall of Fame. Of course, our guess is the Canadian Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the not the more popular one. Kidding aside, along with Broken Social Scene, Feist is a very respected Adult Alternative musician and a lot better than the 1234 song that Apple made famous.

Another excellent Heavy Metal band, Godsmack may draw more from Grunge than from the Metal superstars of the decade prior. Appealing to straight up Metal fans and Alternative connoisseurs, the Boston based group has carved out a very successful career for themselves and if the Hall ever truly decided to recognize the Metal genre, they would one day have a decent shot for induction.

Another Emo band that had more critical respect than the ones that made it big, Hot Rod Circuit may have also been a lyrically more sophisticated than their peers. With that said, there is a chance that a group labeled as Emo will get into the Hall, but that band will be more commercially successful than Hot Rod Circuit.

Ja Rule https://www.notinhalloffame.com/rock-and-roll/the-rock-and-roll-futures/2024-rock-eligibles/2224-ja-rule https://www.notinhalloffame.com/rock-and-roll/the-rock-and-roll-futures/2024-rock-eligibles/2224-ja-rule Although Ja Rule was one of the most successful Rappers in terms of sales in the first half of the 00’s, he is probably best known for the feuds he has had with Hip Hop stars of even greater stature (and we aren’t just making a pun about his height). As long as this stays the case, and until the first thing you think of with Ja Rule is his music, his Hall of Fame possibilities continues to shrink.   The Bullet Points:Eligible Since: 2024 Country of Origin: U.S.A.

Lopez is not the greatest singer, nor does she have any songs that push any musical boundaries. Still, with the kind of success that J-Lo has had, she indirectly becomes an outside possibility to be looked at by the Hall.   The Bullet Points:Eligible Since: 2024 Country of Origin: U.S.A.

As such, he is subject to a bit of a backlash from men and generally the Rock and Roll set. He is a talented Singer/Songwriter but ironically his mass popularity may work against him as Hall of Fame seems to like their songwriters somewhat tortured. Considering the amount of celebrity women that Mayer gets, there is nothing tortured about him.   The Bullet Points:Eligible Since: 2024 Country of Origin: U.S.A.

Actually more successful in England, Kelis is a decent R&B artist who deserves to be reflected on more than that one hit…or her tumultuous career outside of her music. With that said, we don’t Cleveland is in her yard. The Bullet Points:Eligible Since: 2024 Country of Origin: U.S.A.

Lil’ Wayne survived from a place that musical stars don’t usually come from; a pre-teen novelty act. That was how he was first seen in the public eye which was as a tween Hardcore Rapper, but regardless of the ability, it still had a novelty feel to it. Wayne did not fade away, and became one of the most successful Hip Hop artists in his generation. Considering that he already has a vast discography already, Lil Wayne’s body of work should be massive by the time he is eligible. His induction could be more likely than you think.]]> [email protected] (Site Admin) 2024 Rock Eligibles Sun, 09 Sep 2012 20:21:56 +0000 M.

Ward has developed a devoted following who loves his beautiful take on Americana. It is a sweet equation that has gotten him to a certain level of success, but is likely not to get him any further, although we suspect he is happiest this way.

Despite her Neo-Soul sound, Gray had a strong Rock and Roll feel to her and intangibles that made her a crossover success. Recent albums have not sold as well, but her mark has already been made, though likely not deep enough to secure a Hall of Fame nod. The Bullet Points:Eligible Since: 2024 Country of Origin: U.S.A.

With a mixture of Folk, Rock and other Roots based American musical styles; the group easily became one of the most genuine acts in the business and the indirect masters of the Neo Psychedelic era. Whether this will translate into a Hall of Fame birth (or just another spot on American Dad) is very much up for debate. The Bullet Points:Eligible Since: 2024 Country of Origin: U.S.A.

They have a very devoted fan base for their earnest and slightly quirky songs but it is a style of music that is not exactly conducive to mass appeal.

Combining Garage Rock, the Blues, kooky lyrics and a bit of the Punk ethos, Jack and Meg White managed to become superstars in both the Alternative and Mainstream world; the latter being impressive as the early 2000’s were dominated by Hip Hop. Jack White is especially revered in music circles and as his star continues to shine, it can only reflect on the Stripes and potentially propel them to Cleveland. ]]> [email protected] (Site Admin) 2024 Rock Eligibles Sun, 09 Sep 2012 20:27:34 +0000 Zero 7 https://www.notinhalloffame.com/rock-and-roll/the-rock-and-roll-futures/2024-rock-eligibles/2235-zero-7 https://www.notinhalloffame.com/rock-and-roll/the-rock-and-roll-futures/2024-rock-eligibles/2235-zero-7 A much respected Trip Hop group, London’s Zero 7 were masters of the Studio and utilized the Electronic spectrum to optimum ability.
