Who is the single most snubbed band not to have yet been inducted into the rock ‘n roll Hall of Fame?

I assume “band” means “artist”, so I nominate Pat Benatar.
How the hell is she not in there yet? My childhood wouldn’t have been my childhood without Pat. She was an inspiration to girls of my generation: a petite, 5′0 rock and roll powerhouse with a huge voice and dynamic stage presence. Pat made sure everyone knew that you could be a cute girl and still rock the roof off.
She has 15 top 40 hits, 5 platinum albums, 2 multi-platinum albums, and four Grammy’s to her credit. It’s been over 40 years since she had her first major hit.
Benatar was nominated for induction in 2020, but the HOF said “nope, not worthy”.
Fucking travesty, man.
