To be eligible for the Hall of Fame, an individual artist or band must have released their first commercial recording at least 25 years before the year of nomination.
Ballots were cast by an international voting body of more than 1,000 artists, including current living Inductees, historians, and members of the music industry.
Factors such as an artist’s musical influence, body of work, innovation, style, and technique are taken into consideration with the voting, according to the organization.
No Judas Priest? No Iron Maiden? No Ronnie James Dio?
They’re a lot of bands that should be inducted, but until the culture of the HOF, is changed it will still be viewed as a laughable fraud that it is.
