The Zombies aren't in yet? Damn, that seems like such a no-brainer.

Never heard of Todd Rungren... or John Prime, or MC5, or Stevie Nicks, and I guess I might have heard of The Zombies but it's such a generic band name that I couldn't really tell. Devo, Chaka Khan and Roxy Music are things I cuuld tell you exist, but that's about it. I know I'm not particularly knowledgeable about music, but I didn't think I was that out of the loop (and these are presumably not recent acts or they wouldn't be in this conversation).

Kraftwerk certainly deserves a place in the Music Hall of Fame... not sure about Rock and Roll, but I guess that's what this acts as.

They were contemporaries of The Beatles who put out songs like Time of the Season and She's Not There (which most people probably know from the Santana cover). I like them a good deal more than The Beatles as I think the subject matter of their songs tends to be a lot more compelling.

You've never heard of Stevie Nicks?

Anyway, aside from the obvious oversight of not including Sha Na Na, I voted for Devo, LL, and Chaka.

Is this place different from the Music Hall of Fame, because most of my choices aren't what you would consider RnR.

The Zombies are from the 60s ? Well, I retract what I said about their names then, that wasn't as generic at that point.

Never heard of Todd Rungren... or John Prime, or MC5, or Stevie Nicks, and I guess I might have heard of The Zombies but it's such a generic band name that I couldn't really tell.

Looked it up, and I thought it would be a man. I am familiar with Fleetwood Mac though, just didn't know their names.
