138. Stereolab
There have been many bands that were known for their experimentalism, but we are hard pressed to find a band that used more non Rock genres to create music that found its way into the Rock canon.  In a decade that celebrated independent music, Stereolab may have had the most “independent” sound of all.  Like much of the Krautrock sound that seemed to inspire them, Stereolab had to settle for devoted fans and acclaimed albums but a position rooted in the underground.  Underground can make the Hall, but it will be a tall order for it to happen.
