Tom Morello's been on the R&R HOF committee for awhile and he's been part of the reason more metal acts have shown up in recent years. Say what you want about Morello, but he gets hard rock and metal.

Motorhead's been pretty much Lemmy/Campbell/Dee since 1992. For awhile in the late 80's, it seemed like it was just Lemmy and whoever he was drinking with, but the lineup really solidified once it became Lemmy/Campbell/Dee.

I think all members of an inducted band should at least be acknowledged. Sure, everyone knows the stars on the Superbowl Champs, but the backups and scrubs also got rings.

Get the iconic or "prime" members to show up to play two songs...but make sure you have the entire band on the actual plaque.

I went to the HOF in 2004. It's worth the visit, but felt more like a traveling "history of American music" exhbit to me. At the time, I didn't see an actual "hall" with busts and plaques, a la Cooperstown and Canton. They may have added one... anyone know?
