Why They Deserve It: These guys deserve it on the numbers alone: 11 studio albums, 130 million in record sales, more 2,600 concerts in more than 50 countries for more than 34 million fans. Aside from that, they’re one of just a few bands who’ve been unaffected by musical trends, notching hit singles in multiple decades, from 1983’s “Runaway” through 2005’s “Who Says You Can’t Go Home.” —Jeff Royer
