Why They Deserve It: While the artistic merit of the “Pre-Fab Four” remains questionable, one could make a strong case for the band based on their commercial impact (65 million albums sold worldwide) and their contribution of several genuinely great pop songs to the pantheon, among them the No. 1 hits “Last Train to Clarksville,” “I’m a Believer” and “Daydream Believer.” —Jeff Royer
