This may or may not have been really mentioned but i'm really curious as to how long of a list that can be composed of all the deserving artists yet to be included into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame to really make it what it was originally set out to be. I'm mainly setting a list of bands/artists that truly do deserve a spot within this giant list already. The next coming year is 2009 which means any act before 1984 is a go for this list.
Also remember, that many bands that are in the Rock and Roll hall of fame may/may not be of actual Rock roots. I mean, of course, sub genres like alternative, punk, heavy, metal, etc etc. Example artists who may fit the bill: Madonna (what the ****...), Sex pistols (they didn't want to be in it), Black Sabbath (they were heavy but still great).

Missing In Action:
