Iron Maiden, New York DollsFoo FightersRage Against The Machine and  among the nominees for the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame‘s class of 2021. The top vote-getters will be announced in May and inducted in a Cleveland, Ohio, ceremony in the fall.

To be eligible for this year’s ballot, each nominee’s first single or album had to have been released in 1995 or earlier.

“This remarkable ballot reflects the diversity and depth of the artists and music the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame celebrates,” Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Foundation chairman John Sykes says in a statement. “These nominees have left an indelible impact on the sonic landscape of the world and influenced countless artists that have followed them.”

According to the Hall Of Fame, the Iron Maiden members that would get inducted would include the current lineup of singer Bruce Dickinson, bassist Steve Harris, drummer Nicko McBrain, and guitarists Adrian Smith, Dave Murray and Janick Gers, along with former singer Paul Di’Anno, former drummer Clive Burr, and former guitarist Dennis Stratton.

A voter pool of more than 1,000 artists, historians, journalists, and members of the music industry will select the new class. Starting Wednesday, fans will also have a chance to take part in the process by voting at or at an interactive kiosk at the museum in Cleveland. Their selections will count as a single “fan ballot” that gets tabulated along with the others.

      Charles, honestly I don’t get all the hate for the Foo Fighters, at least they keep it real. They’re one of only a few bands that emerged from the ’90s that never (as far as I know) bent over and let Rap f–k them up the ass! They are all about Rock and Roll, I don’t like every song they ever made, but overall they’re alot better than most of the crap that came out of the ’90s. What really, REALLY pisses me off is why there hasn’t even been any mention of Alice In Chains, or Stone Temple Pilots in the HOF, IMO they are the 2 best bands to come out of the grungy era.

    What we really need is when the hall is closed have that Giant crab from the cover of Mammoth WVH demolish it

    Another snub, one of the biggest ~ Huey Lewis & The News! Other than Michael Jackson, Prince, Hall & Oates, Phil Collins/Genesis, and a few others, nobody dominated the ’80s like Huey Lewis & The News did. Great musicians, great albums, great songs, and a GREAT LIVE band!
