268. Pere Ubu

Not every Rock band dreamed of hitting it big, and many musicians did so only for their craft. Pere Ubu couldn’t possibly have dreamt of the commercial aspect of Rock and Roll, and if they ever got close to it, the band would have likely done everything they could have to stop it. Everything about Pere Ubu appeared to be “Anti-Rock and Roll” and did everything they could to disassociate themselves from it. They were (and still are) a very influential Experimental Rock band, but despite hailing from Cleveland, the only way they will get in the Hall would be to buy a ticket.         The Bullet Points:   Eligible Since: 2003   Country of Origin: U.S.A.
