But isn't that part of it? Isn't it to honor people who had an impact, influenced others, and became part of the cultural lexicon? Lots of inductees recorded very few albums or had few true hits, but they still made their mark. Granted, that makes things somewhat subjective, but does anyone think it should be just about the numbers? You wouldn't need a nomination committee if you just followed ironclad rules like, "once your sales reach 10 million, you're in" or "once you've had five No. 1 hits, you're in."
