It is early days with it and I've not managed to get a nomination put up yet myself, but Im sure I wont be alone in nominating an act who are obscure to many in the outside world and yet championed on this place, or even perhaps not thought of as anything at all yet.
I've put one nomination in which should get put up soonish, and after that when I can be bothered writing something up, my next nomination should be a bloke whose glory days were pre 1940. Both I am confident will "surprisingly" get inducted.

Instead of seeing this as a contest, which I happen to think as a negative thing also, why not see it as your chance to champion someone?

Just because there are a load of Prog Rockers on here is the only reason the likes of 'King Crimson' got in ('Yes' nearly...).

Thats all well and good, was just pointing out that it isn't based on being the best nor is it that predictable given who is missing out.

And as I said afterwards, at the beginning the obvious ones get in only for it to branch out.

If you want it to branch out NOW... How about nominating someone instead of complaining?
