This is the first nomination for Lollapalooza instigators Jane's Addiction.
Rock & Roll Hall of Fame bio:
"Jane’s Addiction is the Sex Pistols of the Alternative Nation, a band with a small but brilliant catalog of songs and a shocking, groundbreaking ethos that changed music forever.
In mid-'80s Los Angeles, hair metal was king. The bands playing the Sunset Strip all looked the same, sounded the same, pouted the same. Jane’s Addiction were different – like a punk rock Led Zeppelin providing all the testosterone-fueled guitars that were required, mixed in with gorgeous acoustic songs and completely original underground artistry."
