Why They Deserve It: If candidates were judged on commercial success alone, Journey would be a shoe-in for the Rock Hall. They’ve sold 80 million albums worldwide, on the strength of two dozen radio hits, including the mega-balled “Open Arms” and the “Glee”-approved anthem “Don’t Stop Believin’.” Unfortunately for them, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame judges on artistic merit, something that hasn’t always been synonymous with the name Journey. —Jeff Royer
