Though it would be inconceivable to say that the world wouldn't have any hard rock without Led Zeppelin, it would certainly be much, MUCH lamer.
One of the ways I like to describe them is "Considerably better then anyone else ever in their genre" To me bands like them The Beatles, Who, Floyd, Dylan etc. are automatics through the first round.

Are you as discouraged as me over all the "no" votes already? I get that people don't like them but I don't get how anyone would exclude them from nomination to the hall of fame, they are clearly a ton of Zeppelin fans here.

I suppose it's a difficult one, you have to balance between whether you think they deserve to be in there and your own personal opinions.

Also, I could do with people sending more nominations, would be very grateful!

I thought this was a poll to determine our favorite bands here? Influence should not be a factor; I don't think anyone who voted "no" (including me) would deny that Led Zep was an incredibly influential (and popular) band, but this isn't a "most influential artists" list. If it was, then Elvis Presley and Bob Dylan would be in the top three, and I don't think that's going to happen here (and it would be somewhat boring anyway; talking about music is best when you're talking about subjective topics).

Please Read the Title

It's the hall of fame, not favorite artists. Why would we have a yes or no for it then?

I think it's a formal rule. It's just there so i don't have a newbie come and make a nomination and then never come back. Thing is a can trust you to come back and back up your claim so yeah, feel free to nominate

I'll 'reserve' to nominate Pink Floyd then (since the Beatles were taken).

I thought that reserved it. I don't need to reserve Pink Floyd then.

"the Hall of Fame will be an ongoing project that with time should honour the music artists that are loved by the collective members of MB. "

I don't know, am I missing something here? Maybe I'm just put off by the fascistic comments that people who don't vote "yes" for Zeppelin are ignorant. If the only goal is to honor influential musicians, there really doesn't need to be a poll at all.
