321. The Raspberries

The Raspberries were an early 70’s Power Pop group that echoed the sound of the British Invasion. Problem was, they did so at a time when many music fans were craving a harder sound and much of the music that they created was considered “uncool” at the time. Time has reflected very well on the Raspberries and the slickly produced music they made proved to be influential in years that followed. Should the Hall wish too induct an early Power Pop group, they may look at this band that gave the Rock world Eric Carmen and induct them as opposed to Big Star or Badfinger.         The Bullet Points:   Eligible Since: 1997   Country of Origin: U.S.A.
