Bands NOT in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

Bon Jovi, Dire Straits, The Cars and The Moody Blue - the most recent inductees to the Rock Hall of Fame - joined dozens of other bands who have been deemed rock-and-roll-hall-of-fame-worthy throughout the past 35 years. After over three decades of the Rock Hall, there is still a shocking number of well-deserving bands, as well as individual rockers, who are yet to be acknowledged by the Rock Hall.
