404. The Feelies
Before there was the “Geek Rock” of Weezer, The Feelies crashed Post Punk with an Alternative Pop band that seemed to capture the imaginations of the introspective and bespectacled American youth. With nervous energy they were underground darlings but were devoid of a hit single that could have made them stars. They did have two acclaimed albums six years apart that inspired current Hall members, R.E.M. and with a first ballot band championing their cause, they might receive a peek.
