485. The Bar-Kays

A band that has a much longer career than most people realizes, the Bar-Kays have a diverse catalogue of music that spanned through Memphis Soul, R&B and Funk. They cut their teeth as one of the main backing bands for various artists at Stax records, but it was not long before they recorded their own material.

Considering the amount of genres that they conceivable represent, they are not impossible for induction.
