20 Bands NOT in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
This is a travesty...
Just because you're nominated for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, doesn't mean you're in. That's what voting is for. And unfortunately, these bands just haven't made it (yet).
1. Bad Company
2. Alice In Chains
4. Temple of the Dog
The fact that Chris Cornell isn't in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame yet, even though he has TWO bands that are eligible is a disgrace. (Audioslave with be eligible in 2026)
6. Ozzy Osbourne
While he is in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with Black Sabbath, he isn't in it as a solo artist.
7. Pat Benatar
8. The Runaways
11. Jane's Addiction
12. Def Leppard
THEY ARE NOMINATED AGAIN THIS YEAR. SO VOTE!
13. Smashing Pumpkins
14. Rage Against the Machine
ANOTHER BAND THAT'S NOMINATED AGAIN THIS YEAR!
15. The Cure
NOMINATED THIS YEAR.
16. Iron Maiden
17. Nine Inch Nails
18. Judas Priest
But just because these bands aren't in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame yet, doesn't mean they never will be! You can be nominated for many years! Case in point: ALL of the nominees for this years Rock and Roll Hall of Fame are NOT first timers. They've been nominated before in years past, but didn't get enough votes.
So keep your eye out for these bands in the future, and when they get nominated again: VOTE!
