Miles Davis isn't rock either (nor are the hip hop acts), but he's inducted. I see no reason why Coltrane and Sinatra especially aren't in the Hall.

Regarding "Blue Monday '88", I am going to combine its points with the original 1983 version. That means if you voted for the 1983 version, I won't count a vote for you for "Blue Monday '88".
Didn't "Blue Monday" already qualify for the final poll? It doesn't need the points at that point.
