Why They Deserve It: This Brit powerhouse has been causing mass “hysteria” for decades. After wooing the world with their glossy take on metal in the ‘80s, the band sold more than 65 million albums worldwide. “Photograph,” “Pour Some Sugar on Me,” “Rock of Ages,” “Let’s Get Rocked,” “Love Bites” – their contributions to the pop canon are seemingly endless. Bonus points for pulling off one of rock’s worst wordplays with “Armageddon It.” —Jeff Royer
