Paul Stanley, like most metalheads, is beside himself at the idea that Iron Maiden has yet to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

The Starchild expressed this opinion via Twitter where he wrote, “Regardless of whether it matters to them, Maiden not being in the @rockhall of Fame is INSANITY. Regardless of who is writing in or not, the Committee must induct them. They have helped spawn an entire genre of music. What else do you need to do??”

Maiden was announced as a nominee for the 2021 class of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame marking the first time the groundbreaking metal band received a nomination.

The 2021 Rock Hall induction class will be announced in May. As previously reported, the Rock Hall is planning on an in-person induction ceremony with fans taking place on October 30 at the Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse arena in Cleveland. Tickets are expected to go on sale in July.

As with previous years, the public will have the opportunity to voice their choice via the Fan Vote at RockHall.com. The Fan Vote runs through April 30. Fans are allowed to vote once per day during the Fan Vote period. Visitors of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum in Cleveland will also have the opportunity to vote in person. The “Fans’ Ballot” will be comprised of the top five artists from the fan vote. That ballot will be counted among the other ballots filled out by various artists, historians, and music industry professionals.
