Mötley Crüe and Iron Maiden Top Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Fan Poll

Published on:

This year saw the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame snub heavy metal world-conquerors Iron Maiden, who were nominated to finally be inducted but apparently hadn’t changed the face of rock music hard enough. Now, the Cleveland-based organization has done an initial tally of its informal fan poll — and heavy metal leads the way!

As reported by Ultimate Classic Rock, visitors to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland have been able to cast their informal votes for next year’s nominees, with over 23,000 votes already having been submitted. At the head of the pack are Mötley Crüe, who have previous claim they’ve been blackballed by the Hall; with Iron Maiden coming in at a close second.

Obviously, these votes are unofficial, and it’s pretty obvious the Rock Hall will just choose whoever they like and turn up their noses at a certain type of all-in metal. But hey, it’s good to know that the people have spoken, and they know what’s up.
