For metal fans, here we are again! Iron Maiden have been left out of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, following a year in which Judas Priest were left out of the Rock Hall for the second time. But Iron Maiden are just one of the acts who ultimately did not make the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame when the final induction class was announced Wednesday (May 12). Rage Against the Machine and New York Dolls were also among the acts still waiting to hear their name called.
Others left out after being on the initial voting ballot for 2021 include Mary J. Blige, Kate Bush, Devo, Chaka Khan, Fela Kuti and Dionne Warwick. LL Cool J, who was also on the ballot, wasn't among the six names for the induction class, but he is still going in the Rock Hall this year as an honoree for the Music Excellence Award.
