The only one I have a real problem with is Public Enemy, and I love Fight the Power and 911 is a Joke. I don't see any real lasting contribution or a catalog that screams HOF.
Personally I don't find Randy Newman to be rock and roll at all. On the other hand, I think Public Enemy was the voice of a generation and very influential on future acts. Compared to today's overproduced, autotuned garbage, Public Enemy is definitely hall-worthy. I the reason they weren't more commercially successful is because they were too intellectual, compared to the club-oriented hip hop that took over. Rapping about politics just isn't as popular as rapping about hitting the clubs, picking up chicks and drinking Crown Royal from a stripper's shoe.
