Why They Deserve It: The godfathers of the gothic side of emo were one of the first truly alternative bands to experience commercial success. Songs like “Lovesong,” “Just Like Heaven” and “Friday I’m in Love” balanced Robert Smith’s tortured lyrics with an understated humor and paved the way for an entire generation of bands, from My Chemical Romance to Interpol. —Jeff Royer
