In order to become nominees for inclusion in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame should be 25 years after the release of the first recording of musicians. The list of candidates is drawn up by an ad hoc committee, after which a vote is taken. It involves 900 artists, historians, representatives of the music industry, as well as ordinary viewers. We have collected a list of the most worthy nominees for the title of members of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. From our point of view, at this moment there are the bunch of groups and musicians who deserve this title, but they for one reason or another have not yet received it. So, let's remember the most legendary musicians who must be included in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
Pearl Jam along with Nirvana, Soundgarden, and Alice In Chains are one of the main bands in the history of grunge. Of all four, Pearl Jam are the most commercially successful team. And although now the group does not bathe in the rays of its former glory, they still release new records and give regular concerts. Seattle-based legendary rockers main success fell on their first three albums: Ten, Vs. and Vitalogy. Frontman Eddie Vedder has always adhered to his own position, which was not easy to push him. For example, at the peak of their popularity, the band's label insisted that Pearl Jam shoot a video for the song Black (from the album Ten, 1991), but Vedder said that all videos allow fans to misinterpret the meaning of their songs. To date, Pearl Jam have released ten studio albums, the last of which (Lightning Bolt) was released in October 2011.
Radiohead was founded in 1985, and its members have not changed since that time. The style of Radiohead is traditionally defined as an alternative rock, although at different stages the sound varied from Brit-pop to art-rock and electronic music. As of May 2011, Radiohead albums were sold in an amount of approximately 30 million copies. Rolling Stone magazine in 2005 placed Radiohead on the 73rd place in the list of the greatest musicians in history. The group received three Grammy Awards in the nomination "Best Alternative Album". Moreover, album "O.K. Computer "received the status of platinum, having received the reputation of one of the most significant albums of the 90s.
Weezer are the prominent rock band from Los Angeles, California, founded in 1992. Now the band consists of Rivers Cuomo (lead vocals, solo guitar), Brian Bell (rhythm guitar, back vocals, keyboards), Scott Schreiner (bass guitar, back vocals) and Patrick Wilson (drums). The band released 10 studio albums, 6 mini-albums (EP) and one DVD. Weezer sold more than 9 million copies of its records only in the US. The band is known for their singles such as "Buddy Holly", "Undone (The Sweater Song)", "Say It Is not So", "Hash Pipe", "Island in the Sun", "Perfect Situation", "Beverly Hills "And" Pork and Beans ".
The American rock band Foo Fighters were officially formed in 1995, but in fact, their rudiments appeared much earlier. The band was founded by the well-known musician Dave Grohl, who recorded two albums with Nirvana as a drummer, incl. the famous "Nevermind". As Grohl himself recalled, he often took a guitar with him on tour and composed songs. Since it was clear that Cobain dominated Nirvana, Grohl decided to leave these songs with him. After Cobain's death in April 1994, Nirvana broke up, and the remaining musicians went their own way. Grohl received many invitations from various collectives and almost became a permanent member of the Tom Petty's group. Instead, the musician went to the studio and recorded some of his own songs, singly playing all the instruments and singing all the vocal parts. He wanted to do something that no one would have expected from him - not to be another drummer, but to become a front man of his group.
