I see these EPIC rock bands getting inducted now, years and years past their prime.
Who goes to any Hall of Fame in their prime?

You have to release your first single 25 years prior. So you basically have to have a 25 year career to make the Hall.

The inaugural induction was in 1986. First year inductee's included:

James Brown
Ray Charles
Chuck Berry
Little Richard
Sam Cooke
Buddy Holly
Fats Domino
Jerry Lee Lewis
The Everly Brothers
