djyueng

The Top TenXW

1Heart

Absolutely love this band! The Wilson sisters prove time and again that they can still rock! They deserve to be inducted!

They are inducted too so please don't vote anymore. - Undistinguished

Seriously, Why are these ladies not in the ARE & ARE hall of fame.

I LOVE heart! Crazy on you is an amazing song

2Journey

Journey is the greatest band ever. I don't understand why they are not in the Rock N Hall of Fame! Steve Perry has the most soulful voice and vocal range of any lead singer. I hope I'm lucky enough to meet him one day. Stefanie Nichols

They have to be there in the next few years. My fear is that steve perry and steve smith and greg rolli wont be there. - schwanie

they have so many great songs. they deserve to be there as much as many who are in. - jwileson

My favorite band of all time!

3Yes

Yes was one of the most adventerous and inspirational bands who at the height of their popularity took substantial musical risks. They were musical pioneers influencing countless bands and individuals.

One of the most influential, genre-defining Symphonic Progressive rock bands.

4Iron Maiden

Even Metallica were affected by Iron Maiden, Iron Maiden is heavy metal, without them, heavy metal wouldn't exist, simple, they should be in rock n' roll hall of fame because they are the best!

Can't believe they aren't already there. Haven't heard metal poetry hear maiden

Why there are not in this list and moreover why they are not in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is beyond me...

5Kiss

annoying guys said this band is not a great band, for me, they are a great band but those dreamers who said that to this band and other great bands should die. they should not be born because they are deaf and close minded to dif. kinds of beautiful music in the world and their masks and make-ups makes them cooler. - ronluna

These guys played a huge role in the glam metal scene and definitely should be in the rock and roll of fame right now.

by the way, a7x can't be in the hall of fame because their fist record isn't 25 years old yet.

KISS hands down 1973 to present ROCK ON MAN YEAH ROCK HALL INDUCT THIS BAND NEXT YEAR

They were inducted in 2014.Please don't vote. - Undistinguished

6The Moody Blues

Their classic seven albums of the late 60s - early 70s, and to a lesser extent "Octave", "Long Distance Voyager" and "Strange Times" represent some of the best soft prog rock ever made. They are still touring and filling auditoria, which is surely worth recognition. Having said that, they would have done their cause some good and earned more respect by creating more new music (as a band, not solo efforts) of the sort of quality of those original albums, instead of apparently being content to keep touring and bashing out the oldies. They should also have got Mike Pinder back into the band long ago, as he was a vital contributor (in terms of songwriting, arranging, vocals, and keyboard/mellotron) to that unique, signature, often ethereal sound that won them so many admirers.

Their 'classic seven' albums of the 60s and 70s are some of the best, sophisticated prog rock ever made in my humble opinion. More to the point they were undeniably up there amongst the best of British rock bands, achieved world-wide success and recognition and sold millions of records all over the world.

One of the best bands ever. Still touring with their nucleus intact, and still rock the house. The nominating committee is a joke.

For some reasons the powers that be wont elect a progressive Rock band like the deserving group The Moody Blues.

Great band. Very talented musicians. Brought the horns out as featured instruments.

The original group should inducted! Ground breaking sound.

Inexcusable they haven't been inducted.

10Bon Jovi

The UK has blessed the boys from Jersey, you'd think the US would catch up soon

They should definitely be in. They have great shows and great music.

The Newcomers

?Godsmack
?Limp Bizkit

The Contenders

11Megadeth

Dave wasn't invited in with Metallica when he wrote some songs!

12Judas Priest
13Slayer
14Genesis

How can they not be in yet? All of their hits, and creating The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway... not to mention three of their members having successful solo careers in their own right. - Darrell

Genesis and Heart are the only 2 bands on this list that I would care to see go to the RRHOF. Maybe Tommy James and the Shondells. The rest are just OK. One is a joke! (KISS)... And One is really nerve racking! (Rush). There are a lot of other bands that deserve to go more like The Guess Who, Bon Jovi, Black Sabbath, The Cure... Just to name a few.

Genesis ain't in yet? I cannot believe what I am seeing! Me and m dad both share a love for Genesis. They deserve it!
