The 2021 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony is officially in the rearview, which means fans have already started campaigning for their favorite artist to get inducted next year.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum in Cleveland has a feature where visitors to the museum can vote for who they would like to see inducted. Future Rock Legends shared the scrolling list of the current vote tallies from visitors, and at the top of the list was Motley Crue and Iron Maiden, respectively.

The remaining top ten vote recipients were Pat Benatar, blink-182, Dave Matthews Band, Dolly Parton, Weezer, Cher, Styx and Boston.

The Rock Hall is a popular topic of discussion every year for a number of reasons ranging from the lack of women represented in the Rock Hall to the lack of heavy metal representation. Fortunately for those that can’t get enough of talking about potential inductees, the nomination and induction schedules for the Rock Hall have been permanently adjusted due to the coronavirus pandemic.

CEO of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation Joel Peresman told Vulture in November 2020, “We moved the timing of the ceremony. We’re going to move the ceremony permanently so it’s in the fall of each year because of COVID. We’re also moving the nomination process…This time the nomination meetings will happen in January, so we’ll announce the nominees in February and start that voting process then.”
