Nirvana would be right for sure. Will be twenty years on in 2014 and their music is still gathering new fans now. People who weren't even born in that time are getting into them on discovering them. Many of the 90s bands and grunge era bands are brilliant but they do sound quintessentially 90s; not Nirvana, they sound as musically fresh as if they could have come out of this decade.

The Zombies should absolutely be in the hall of fame. Since they've received more notice and appreciation as times has gone by, I'm hoping it will still happen. If you take a close listen, you'll hear a group that was way ahead of their time.

Mariah Carey should soon be eligible for the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 2015 and she released her first album in 1990 and since artists are eligible for the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame 25 years after the release of their first album, Mariah Carey would be a possibility. Mariah Carey had more #1 hits than anybody in music except for the Beatles and Elvis Presley. Mariah Carey is the only artist to have a #1 hit for every year in one decade (1990s). I think Mariah Carey would have a good chance of getting inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 2015.

Here are who else I think will be inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 2015.

1. Deep Purple
2. Bon Jovi
3. Def Leppard
4. Ringo Starr
5. Zombies

Ringo Starr is already a member of the HOF as part of The Beatles. However, I disagree that he should also be separately inducted for his solo career. Starr had a string of Top 10 hits in the first half of the 1970s, but has done little since in terms of musical influence. The purpose of the HOF is to honor those whose music has had an impact on culture as it pertains to rock. Some inductees are there because of sheer number of hits or albums (e.g. Neil Diamond) Some are there because of a combination music and cultural influence (e.g. Grateful Dead). The primary reason some want Ringo inducted is to complete the novelty of all members of an inducted band to also have been inducted individually. But, the real test is to decide if the Beatles never existed, would Ringo be a candidate based solely on his musical work standing alone since 1970? If the answer is "yes" then by all means he should be in. But if we are honest, I don't think we can go that far.
