I wouldn't be surprised to see Blue Oyster Cult eventually inducted, as the credentials are certainly there.
As for The Replacements, I view them as I view The Call.
Both were critically acclaimed bands with quality material, but for some reason the public--even AOR fans of the era--never seemed to fully embrace them even though both were not exactly flops on AOR radio, either.
I was actually going to feature a track by The Replacements in a future Lost Tracks segment, but, what the heck? Here's a bonus.
The Replacements--I'll Be You (1989)
This track climbed to the top of Billboards Top Rock tracks in the Spring of '89.
Why was this wasn't a correspondingly smash Pop hit, I'll never understand. This band's entire catalog is well worth checking out.
