Who the f**k is Jackyl?

They had a minor hit on MTV in the early 90s with The Lumberjack.  I remember it spending two weeks on the top 20 video countdown at 20 and 18.  It’s heavy metal with chainsaw sounds.  I’m not joking.

Yeah some crazy inbred shit. Video is funny because its so....

Didn't eddie van halen utilize the drill on a tune?

Poundcake.

Still no Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Thin Lizzy, King Crimson, Jethro Tull, Grand Funk Railroad, T. Rex, Dead Kennedys?
Lame and silly.

King Crimson, Tull, Grand Funk, Marc Bolan's band and the Kennedys aren't really HoF material.   The first 3 should be in, although Lizzy does nothing for me personally.

Grand funk is awesome.  Super popular and influential .

Homer Simpson would agree.

There is nothing like some bong shaking bass...

Seriously though my view on gfr has changed greatly as of late. I watched some concerts on youtube and saw great playing and cock rock in its infancy. The singer is like david lee roth who rips on a guitar.

Except its dlr who copied this dude. As well as the singer from black oak Arkansas

Tull is similar, although you can argue that Aqualung enjoyed somewhat wide appeal.  I personally like them, but that's hardly the test for HoF qualification.
re:  Tull's wide appeal, what about a string of gold (11) and platinum (5) albums )some reaching #1 Billboard status),  two #1 singles and 7 other top 10 charting singles, and 60 million albums sold?  Or selling out five nights in a row at the 20k seat LA Forum?

Tull were huge in the early to mid-70s.

Tull is a closer call, no question.
:yes:

Ian Anderson's schtick is easy to mock, which likely keeps them out.

probably has more to do with them being critically reviled
Very much like RUSH.  It was RUSH's pestering fans that got them in.
There's some other artists out there that need this treatment to get Jann Wenner to let them in.......Priest, Maiden, Ozzy (solo) Doobies, Tull, T Rex, etc. There's plenty of others

It was, in fact, an actual power drill EVH used, too.
