List Rules Only musicians who haven't been inducted into the Rock Hall

Update:  Nirvana, Peter Gabriel, KISS, Hall and Oates, Linda Ronstadt and Cat Stevens were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as part of the class of 2014. Each new crop of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees brings with it with it a good share of controversy. Who is most deserving of being in the Rock Hall of Fame? Vote for the bands and musicians that you think most belong in the Rock and Roll HOF, or make your own ranked list of the rockers who have been left out of the Rock Hall

This list collects artists that Ranker voters and listers think belong in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, but who are not currently inducted. Remember, bands and musicians are only eligible for induction 25 years after the release of their debut album, so popular acts from the late '80s, '90s or '00s would not yet be eligible. Don't suggest them!
