Not sure why it matters that Metallica didn't gain fame until the 90's(which is debatable). Their careers pretty much paralleled each other in their early years. Both bands had their "hit" albums (Hysteria and the "Black" album) roughly ten years after they formed. DL just happened to have started earlier.

I suppose you could make an argument for Bon Jovi because they had a hit album 3 years after forming, but Desmond Child co-writes and tons of play on MTV and radio helped them alot. Metallica had non of that in the early days.

I think the criteria for induction should be based more on overall impact on the music scene (sales, influence, etc...) than when your career started.
