Thin Lizzy aren't my all-time favorite band (they're close) but if I had better taste they probably would be. I slaved and agonized deciding which clip to post to best launch the call to action you will read about in a second, and I chose this one because it epitomizes the blend of panache, gusto, and yes, tenderness that was not to be found among their contemporaries in such spades. Most bands that could rock as hard as Thin Lizzy usually are wise enough to not turn the volume down and indulge in rhythm and blues experiments like "Dancing in the Moonlight". Thank heaven the late, great Phil Lynott and company didn't know better.

For reasons that escape me, Thin Lizzy, despite millions of records sold, critical acclaim, respect of their peers, great album upon great album, international market penetration, and just being plain awesome, are NOT in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

So, here's your call to action! Most of us Netroots folks have made and/or joined a "100,000 Strong for _____" Facebook group for a political cause we believe in at some time or another. Please join Induct Thin Lizzy Into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Already on Facebook. It's a cause worth fighting for!

Can you help us out?
