6. MC5

When the NIHOF committee got together and threw around adjectives to describe the musicians on this list the word “revolutionary” was mentioned quite often. Revolutionary certainly fits the music of MC5 (The Motor City 5), but this could be the only band that actually wanted to start a political revolution one as well.

127. The Cult

There are some bands that seem poised to break through the stratosphere but for whatever reason just can’t. The Cult seems to be one of those bands that while although they were very successful; they just seemed to fall short of what many thought they could have been.
