WAY, WAY BEFORE NIRVANA: Apparently, no artist or band that released their first album in 1980 is worthy of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. This should open up the field for prior nominees who missed the voting threshold (Black Sabbath, Skynyrd, and John Mellencamp), and the new additions to the ballot--Cat Stevens, Blondie, and Miles Davis. I'm not sure who exactly has been snubbed, though Huey Lewis & The News put out their first album in 1980.
