You’ve been waiting with baited breath on the decision of the voting party for the next round of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees and now my friends the votes have been tallied and here they are. Behold your “Class of 2019”: The Cure, Janet Jackson, Def Leppard, Stevie Nicks, Radiohead, Roxy Music and The Zombies.

2019 rock and roll hall of fame inductees

PiercingMetal Thoughts: There aren’t a whole lot of surprises to me with the inductees as I was pretty much expecting groups like Def Leppard and The Cure and Radiohead to win out. Nice to see Stevie Nicks getting the honor outside of her work with Fleetwood Mac for sure and since I never followed Roxy Music I’ll have to defer to the experts on their offerings. Though I feel Janet is a world of talent, she doesn’t do much with “Rock” so I’m surprised the committee opted for her as opposed to the likes of Devo or Todd Rundgren. I’d say “maybe next year” to those groups but after seeing what happened with Judas Priest and their one and done nomination, I don’t have a whole lot of faith in the process. Of course, I never really did. Should you wish to remind yourself of the nominees that this new class was pooled from just click HERE to see our summary from some months ago. Please chime in down below with what you think about these inductees and who’d you like to see receive the honor next year but be realistic. Remember we aren’t going to see Slayer and Motorhead on this list any time soon no matter how important they are to our Legions.

The 2018 Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame Inductees Are:

The results are in and below please find the 2018 Inductees to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. I’ve followed the visual below with a reminder of the criteria and more. Take a look.

The Criteria: Currently, groups or individuals are qualified for induction 25 years after the release of their first record. Nominees should have demonstrable influence and significance within the history of rock and roll. Four categories are recognized: Performers, Non-Performers, Early Influences, and Sidemen (as of 2000). Fans never had any input but in 2012 they were given the chance to vote for the nominees they’d like to see inducted into the Rock Hall. The top five vote-getters in the public poll form one ballot, which is weighted the same as the rest of the submitted ballots.

2018 Fan Vote Winners: Bon-Jovi, Dire Straits, The Cars, Moody Blues and Judas Priest

The 2018 Inductees To The Rock and Roll Hall Are: Bon Jovi, The Cars, Dire Straits, The Moody Blues, Nina Simone, Sister Rosetta Tharpe. I’ve added some thoughts to each of them.

Behold The Winners Of The 2018 Rock Hall Fan Voting

I guess it was only a couple of months ago that we shared the means for the fans to make their voices known about the nominees for the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame Class of 2018. The list had some Hard Rock and Metal notables among many that would make Rock fans scratch their heads but hey we are not in charge of the list and are only here to help raise awareness. Earlier this morning, the winning names in this Fan Voting poll were revealed and I submit them for your approval along with the statement that was released..

The Statement: Congratulations to the 2018 Fan Vote Winners. Thank you for supporting your favorite artists by voting in the #RockHall2018 Fan Vote! The poll is closed and the following artists will each receive an extra vote in the Official Induction Vote. Altogether we received 6.8 million votes for all 19 Nominees.

1. Bon Jovi – 1.16M votes
2. Moody Blues – 947K
3. Dire Straits – 613K
4. The Cars – 552K
5. Judas Priest – 538K

PiercingMetal Thoughts: So there you have it. The results are right in front of you and clearly the Metal Legions DIDN’T stand up to be counted as much as I might have hoped. Sure they are in the “Top 5” but they are number five and unless the actual voting parties for the “honor” actually have them in their list to be put in the Hall, they only get one additional vote. I think Bon Jovi will be the only one from these Fan Vote winners to even get into the Rock Hall to be quite honest and while would love the whole bunch of these to make it (since these were all of my picks as well) I think its very unlikely. The full list of the nominees is in the graphic below and you already know that the Hall loves to induct a Rap artist or group nowadays and some of the others are only known for one song or album which always surprises me. Anyway, that’s all I have on this matter. What do you think of these results and did you help them to become reality? If you didn’t I am a tad disappointed since it only took a moment to nominate the five you could speak up for but with peoples attention span being so quick I am not surprised at all. Until next time.
