We can't say that we disagree...
A new petition to induct INXS into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame has appeared online.
The website's mission statement reads, "As a fan-based group, our mission is to get INXS nominated & inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame. Our hope is that by Engaging, Educating & Inspiring old and new fans alike, we can achieve our goal and ensure INXS's legacy. A thousand years from now, we want people to remember the electrifying performances, genre-bending music and endless talent that is INXS - what better way to honour & immortalise this iconic band than get them inducted into the RRHOF!"
InductINXS is a global fan-based movement run by Dina, Shanon & Jim that will surely be appreciated here in Australia.
While the group aims to get 100,000 signatures, the Change.org petition currently sits at 10,543 signees - if it gets to 15,000 signatures, it will be one of the top-signed petitions on Change.org.
Finding InductINXS couldn't come at a better time. The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame 2022 ceremony was held over the weekend, with Duran Duran, Pat Benatar & Neil Giraldo, Eurythmics, Eminem, Carly Simon, Dolly Parton, and Lionel Richie inducted in the Performers category.
Meanwhile, Judas Priest and Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis won the Musical Excellence Award.

Harry Belafonte and Elizabeth Cotten received the Early Influence Award. Jimmy Iovine, Allen Grubman, and Sylvia Robinson won the Ahmet Ertegun Award for non-performing musical professionals who influenced rock and roll music.
The ceremony's most significant moments included Lionel Richie performing a string of hits, such as Hello and the crowd-favourite All Night Long. Dave Grohl joined him on guitar and vocals during his performance of the Commodores' hit, Easy. The pair previously collaborated on the Foo Fighters film, Studio 666.
Eminem, inducted by his longtime collaborator Dr. Dre, played a medley including My Name Is, Rap God, Not Afraid and Forever, and brought out Aerosmith's Steven Tyler for a live recreation of the Dream On sample found on Sing For The Moment and Ed Sheeran to reprise Dido's chorus on Stan.
The ceremony closed with a tribute to the late Jerry Lee Lewis, with Bruce Springsteen and John Mellencamp covering Great Balls Of Fire.
