366. .38 Special

As one of the most successful Southern Rock bands, .38 Special’s brand of Southern Fried Pop was a successful recipe for success in the 80’s. Basically a cross between Lynyrd Syknyrd and Arena Rock, .38 Special’s playful hits found a wide variety of fans as they could appeal to Hard Rock, Country and Pop crowds. Their drawback was that they were not considered a “deep” enough band, and with Skynyrd and the Allmans already in, the debt to Southern Rock may be filled with bands that the Hall considers more textured.         The Bullet Points:   Eligible Since: 2002   Country of Origin: U.S.A.
