Bob Dylan built the Hall of Fame, definite yes.
I have acquired four score and nineteen difficulties, but a wench cannot be counted among them

Next up from my main man Waspstar

Bob Dylan

If he had done nothing but record Highway 61 Revisited, he'd still deserve a place in any hall of fame. But he's made plenty of records that are just as good (or almost as good):

The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan
The Times, They Are-A Changin'
Blonde On Blonde
John Wesley Harding
Nashville Skyline
Blood On The Tracks
Street Legal
Empire Burlesque
Under The Red Sky
Good As I Been To You
Time Out Of Mind
Love & Theft

And I'll bet there's no one here who hasn't heard some version of at least one of these: All Along The Watchtower, Blowin' In The Wind, Knockin' On Heaven's Door, Like A Rolling Stone, If Not For You, Rainy Day Women. I can't imagine anyone not rating those as songs (say what you will about his voice or his haphazard approach to making records; his songs define brilliance).

Dylan was my gateway drug into bona fide music addiction, and in a way, that was a bad thing, because everything was downhill from there.
Why didn't he mention Bringing It All Back Home? That's his best album. Another Side of Bob Dylan deserves a mention too.

Anyway, huge yes from me. One of my very few childhood artists that I still admire and listen to.
Now another stranger seems to want you to ignore his dreams as though they were the burden of some other

I can't really think of any other folk artist who'd deserve it more.
