Iron Maiden are among the bands nominated for the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame 2023 vote this year. Last year, we saw Judas Priest make it in, and in previous years, Iron Maiden has disparaged the Rock Hall. Now you can vote for up to five artists daily and submit your vote until April 28th. The fan vote is a portion of what helps a band get into the Hall of Fame. The bands up for induction are Joy Division/New Order, Cyndi Lauper, Rage Against The Machine, Soundgarden, The Spinners, Willie Nelson, George Michael, Sheryl Crow, Missy Elliott, The White Stripes, Warren Zevon, A Tribe Called Quest, Kate Bush, and Iron Maiden.
You can vote at The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame website with a valid email. There are some strange choices but the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame will never be the actual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, think of it more like the Music Hall of Fame. If Iron Maiden makes it in, we’ll have to see what members get inducted along with the band. Will Paul Di’Anno make it in with them? What about Blaze Bayley? Or Dennis Stratton? They’ve slighted members of Judas Priest and Iron Maiden in the past, so maybe they’ve changed their tune.
New Order and Joy Division would go in, if inducted, as a group because Joy Division became New Order after the death of lead singer Ian Curtis in 1980. There’s sure to be some controversy because there’s always controversy with the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame vote.
