Phish in the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame?


Recommended Posts

Artists become eligible for induction 25 years after the release of their first record. Criteria include the influence and significance of the artists’ contributions to the development and perpetuation of rock and roll.

The Foundation’s nominating committee selects nominees each year in the Performer category. Ballots are then sent to an international voting body of more than 600 artists, historians and members of the music industry. Those performers who receive the highest number of votes - and more than 50 percent of the vote - are inducted. The Foundation generally inducts five to seven performers each year.

Phish passes the 25-year criterion but I don't see how the voting body would vote for Phish based on the influence and significance criteria.

I completely agree with AD. It'll be tough because Phish is so insular in terms of their influence on other bands and culture in general, apart from the immediate fanbase obviously. If one was campaigning for this, you could argue that the continuation and modernization of the Dead's business model is pretty important, but that's boring to most people.
