Why They Deserve It: Cheap Trick are simply one of the great American rock bands of all time, although they’ve always been criminally underappreciated. Songs like “Surrender,” “Dream Police” and “I Want You to Want Me” are part of the rock canon, and doctored or not, “At Budokan” remains one of the great live albums. —Jeff Royer
