“Weird Al” Yankovic
Eligible Since: 2004
Years Nominated: None
Why They Deserve It: “Eat It.” “Smells Like Nirvana.” “Perform This Way.” Is there any greater rite of passage for a pop artist than to earn a spoof from the King of Parody? Now some fans are arguing that “Weird Al” should be given a rite of passage of his own in the form of a Rock Hall nod. Thousands have added their signatures to various online petitions, and Rolling Stone’s readers recently named Yankovic as the top artists who should be nominated for the Hall of Fame. —Jeff Royer
