Re: Off Topic Music Hall Of Fame

Not forgetting The Prodigy.

In the 1990's took the world by storm with their Electronic, Rave, Punk music.

An absolute one off. Until the death of Keith they could still still fill massive stadiums and festivals

They should be in the Hall of Fame without question thumbsup

Re: Off Topic Music Hall Of Fame

A few more from me:


Black Sabbath - The inventors of heavy metal. Pioneers.


Deep Purple - Also pioneers of metal/hard rock.  And who doesn't know Smoke On The Water?


Some more NWOBHM (New Wave Of British Heavy Metal) pioneers.


Iron Maiden - Still going strong after all these years.


Motorhead - We've lost all 3 classic members in the last few years: Lemmy (2015), Phil "Philthy Animal"Taylor (2015), "Fast" Eddie Clarke (2018).  They crossed the divide between hard rock/metal & punk, with fans of all genres flocking to their unique take on heavy music.


Lynyrd Skynyrd - Legends of Southern Rock.  They have a brilliant back catalogue, including the song everyone knows, Sweet Home Alabama.
