Motley Crue tops Rock Hall’s ‘Voice Your Choice’ poll
Motley Crue has ended up at Number One on the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s “Voice Your Choice” poll, where fans vote on which artists they feel are most deserving of induction into the institution.
Blink-182 had been leading the voting, but it’s possible that the publicity surrounding Motley Crue’s recent biopic The Dirt gave the Crue a boost. Blink is still in the Top 10 however, along with Iron Maiden, Weezer, Rage Against The Machine, Boston and others.
Earlier this year, bassist Nikki Sixx warned that the Crue were all but ineligible for the Rock Hall due to their previous behavior, explaining, “We don’t have any plans because we were told by the Hall of Fame that we would never get in, because of how we’ve acted.”
Fleetwood Mac vocalist Stevie Nicks earned a solo nomination and subsequent induction after leading last year’s “Voice Your Choice.” The poll is different from the annual online vote that lets fans pick their favorite bands once nominations have been announced, with the tally being tabulated as an official ballot for the Rock Hall.
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame “Voice Your Choice” Poll Results as of May 14, 2019:
1. Motley Crue
3. Iron Maiden
