I've just never liked Mars Volta much. It bores me. Alot of my friends dig them, but I prefer ATDI, and even them I wouldn't consider for a hall of fame.

Internet's been down folks, soz.

Mars Volta do not get in. Next up from FaSho... THE GREATEST BAND EVER.

The Smiths



Putting aside that they are my favorite band, I really think they deserve a spot, because first of all, they were able to push away all the cheesy 80's music being released at the time and make something just plain amazing, also they're one of the few bands where everything they release is solid, and I know there are people who don't like them much on MB, but their influence aone should get them in.
On a personal note, they really show my experiance as an MB member. When I joined this forum I liked bands like Sum 41 and the like, and when I got Meat Is Murder, it changed my whole outlook on music, and now my taste is far more mature, and well...better.
I hope this is enough of a write-up, because they really deserve a spot.

I haven't explored their discography as much as I'd like (only got Hatful Of Hollow and the Queen Is Dead, and I've given most of their other albums a listen at some point or other but never actually bought them), but anyway;

As long as I'll live I may never come across a band as colossally overrated and insanely frustrating to listen to as the Smiths. I can't pretend I've ever been a fan of jangle pop but when you hear "the best" of it and you're able to recognize how much you hate it, it's fairly safe to say you aren't going to be turned on by the rest of their music. And no matter how many times I listen to Morrissey's indistinct whine I can't get into this band.

A definite "no" from me.

As I've said before influence wont make or break any of my decisions but with that said The Smiths influence surely cannot be questioned. Johnny Marr is simply put one of the most under-rated guitarists who's work I personally have ever come into contact with, Morrissey is a top class lyricist and one of those writers whose lyrics I will sit and read from the inlay. Strong, intelligent, identifiable pop music that I can only hope will stand the test of the time to be appreciated by generations to come.

One big, fat yes.

first the Beatles and now the Smiths... were you dropped on your head as a baby? Repeatedly? It's not on Sam mate. You'll probably come around in a couple of years, you can quote me on that (maybe not so much on the Smiths but Morrissey's voice is not an indistinct whine )

I suppose I'd better vote yes... Hopefully we can get all the usual suspects out the way and get on with the interesting stuff like Big Black, this is like reading a 'top ten artists ever' list in some MOR music mag in WHSmith waiting for the train to 'meh'

Maybe Radiohead, Pink Floyd, Beatles etc etc should all just be included from the off so people needn't waste their time nominating them? Everyone knows those bands are getting in. Cam ahhhhn

edit: just clocked we've covered most of the predictable stuff, I was obviously absent

I'm voting yes, because while I don't personally listen to them, they're definitely a Musicbanter favorite, and from what I hear, they've inspired many bands.
