Some bands despise the whole institution—but Jane's Addiction is pretty excited to be nominated. The Hall of Fame would finally credit the band for its too-often-unacknowledged role in rock history. Rage Against The Machine's Tom Morello said:

“Nirvana often gets credit for being the first ‘alternative’ band to break through, the band that changed music and led rock out of the hair metal wilderness of the ’80’s. That’s just not true. It was Jane’s Addiction.”

When the founder of Fugazi calls you "the greatest band in the world," you deserve to be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Bad Brains redefined hardcore punk but also broke down racial barriers, paving the way for Faith No More, Public Enemy, Rage Against the Machine, Fishbone, and Living Colour. Stereo Williams at "The Daily Beast" called them "the most important American band of the last 35 years" as well as the "cornerstone of American punk and the godfathers of hardcore."

Tom Morello on Perry Farrell: “He single-handledly forged the ‘Lollapalooza nation,’ smashing barriers between genres, bringing the fringe into the mainstream and allowing rockers and rappers to share the stage for the very first time.” Jane's Addiction changed music and the culture.
