The first artist getting in are Public Enemy. They're the most important, most singular artist here, as well as the most important hip-hip act ever.

Sorry but NWA are more important than PE.

Their legacy is still felt right now, their legacy has changed the world much more than PE's for better or worse. And not just the world of hip hop or even music, but society in general.

I remember an L.A. Times article on the greatest album of all time. It wasn't Sgt Pepper's, it wasn't a Dylan album, it was NWA's Straight Outta Compton. In it the writer went on to describe why it was so important and how it will continue to impact the future of not just music, but society. And it was spot on.

These are the only Hall worthy bands and NWA is in largely as a homage to the solo work of Cube, Dre and Eazy. Their group stuff, while monumental isn't extensive.

Rush and Deep Purple are shoe-ins. PE and NWA were at the forefront of hip hop's transition into controversy and the mainstream and are of great historical relevance, and Heart might be one of the rockingest chick bands ever.

Californication, By The Way, and Stadium Arcadium are the Peppers' 3 best albums...tho I find it hard to consider anything without Frusciante together with stuff he is on.

No way. I don't see how this is a discussion. It Takes A Nation of Millions To Hold Us Back is considered the greatest rap album ever made. Fear Of A Black Planet and Countdown To Armageddon are as good. NWA have Straight Outta Compton. Public Enemy didn't come thru as a moment in time. They're one of the great groups period.

How is PE's impact still relevant right now?

And if it is, is it bigger than NWA's?

Not close.

Not that I'm hating on PE, but NWA changed the world. Gangsta/thug/mafioso/drug whatever you wanna call it comes from NWA. One can make a good argument over who had the better albums, but it's no argument as to who has/d the bigger impact….not close.

If both could get in at the same time, that'll be great. But if only one gets the nod, it should be NWA this year, followed by PE.

But they are the fundamental of all other mainstream electronic acts coming after them.
