446. Suzanne Vega
With her quiet subdued voice and poetic lyrics, Suzanne Vega neither looked nor sounded like a Rock star, yet there she was. Vega helped usher in a new series of female Singer/Songwriters and showed record companies that not only were they culturally relevant, they could be commercially viable. As much as her first big hot, Luka was a surprise hit seemingly out of left field, her Hall of Fame induction could come out of the same place.
