What have they done outstanding? I hold even more to my opinion after Trace reminded me that they have been out for 27 years, I would have to see some statistics and facts about why they should recieve such an honor before I could vote them in.
If this is the kind of crap you care about:

-Won seven Grammy Awards.

-Sold 55 million records

-Eight Top 40 singles (including three in the Top 10)

-Five number one singles on the Mainstream Rock Charts

-All-time record of eleven number one singles on the top of the Modern Rock Charts

-Former guitarist John Frucsiante was ranked 18 in Rolling Stone's list "The 100 Greatest Guitar Players of All Time"

-Rolling Stone once said "if there were a Most Valuable Bass Player award given out in rock, Flea could have laid claim to that bitch ten years running"

-MusicRadar put Chad Smith in sixth place on their list of the "50 Greatest Drummers Of All Time"

-Blood Sugar Sex Magik was ranked 310 out of Rolling Stone's "500 Greatest Albums of All Time"

Calling One Hot Minute and Californication utter "pish" is probably an overstatement. It's just different is all...

The fact they even still manage to sell any of their bland middle of the road slop should be reward enough for them.

Its more of the artistic and compositional aspects I was mainly referring to, so I should have explained my position a little more in detail.
I guess that I am old school my brother, my generation consisted of bands like Triumph, Rush, Yes, etc.
So maybe you can see why I may verse an opinion that requires higher standards musically.
But at the same time I also like the approach toward the simplicity aspects of musical composition.
Maybe I dont see something that you do and you are correct, so the conclusion remains only a personal opinion on my part.

Even though, at this point, the majority of their output has sucked, I'm voting yes to the Chilis because:
  1. Their first four albums are all fantastic, an accomplishment in and of itself.
  2. For better or worse they were one of the most influential rock bands of the past 20 years or so.

Hmmmm... The Red Hot Chili Peppers... Well, TBH, I don't know any albums by them, I know the hits. I like this hits, but are they really HoF material? I'll have to think about that...

I ended up voting yes. Their music is decent, and their influence is undeniable.

Honestly, I would be highly surprised if RHCP didn't make it into the HOF and I would be appalled if those decisions were based on the tail end of their discography.

Their first 4-5 albums were fantastic and I think most people would be hard pressed not to find something they like there... they had a fun, energetic and sex fuelled brand of funk/punk and no-one sounded quite like them. From there, they could have stagnated but instead evolved... even if this change was arguably for the worse, they at least maintained an identity throughout. People are quite divided on their last four albums - I find OHM to be great (like most fans) but I consider Cali mediocre, By the Way a good pop album and Stadium Arcadium to be a steaming turd. I won't go into the influence thing - you need only think of the countless numbers of people who have picked up bass guitar after hearing Flea play.

I guess what I'm saying through this poorly disguised fanboyism is FOR CHRIST'S SAKE, DON'T VOTE BASED ON THAT P.O.S. HEY OH SONG OR HOW TIRED YOU ARE OF HEARING SCAR TISSUE ON THE RADIO
