Not ‘N’ Roll: Will AP’s Scene Make The Rock Hall?

Not ‘N’ Roll: Will AP’s Scene Make The Rock Hall?

Now that all of the pageantry over this year’s inductions into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame is far behind us, let’s consider the very scene we immerse ourselves in. Did you ever wonder if any of the bands you currently hold dear will gain a level of respect worthy of Rock Hall enshrinement? Since this writer wonders about this kind of stuff semi-frequently, we pondered who from the scene would make the jump to full-on Rock History™ and who would live only in our hearts—and whatever micro-chipped social media platform will be controlling us by then. Consider this arbitrary cross-section of bands, with stats and theories on what each band might have on display in the Rock Hall Museum.
