This Saturday at 8 p.m. ET, HBO will air the 2015 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, which went down last month in Cleveland. Being inducted this year are Stevie Ray Vaughan, Lou Reed, Bill Withers, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, Green Day, the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, The “5” Royales, and Ringo Starr. And yet, there are still a ton of legendary musicians and bands waiting on the sidelines, who were eligible* for the Hall of Fame this year — or have been for many years — but were passed over. Let’s run down 12 of this year’s more notable snubs.

* Note: Artists become eligible for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 25 years after releasing their first album or single.
