Petition to change the name of the Rock Hall of Fame to the Music Hall of Fame

Totally fed up with the Rock Hall inducting non Rock bands. They need to do the right thing and rebrand under the name Music Hall of Fame. 

Here are just a few of the bands or musicians that have been snubbed by the Rock Hall yet they wanna keep adding Rap Stars to the Rock Hall.

So are these bands or musicians worthy of the Rock Hall?

Dave Matthews Band, Guess Who, Iron Maiden, Joe Cocker, Judas Priest, MC5, Motorhead, Mott The Hoople, New York Dolls, Ozzy Osbourne, Pat Benatar, Sammy Hagar, Soundgarden, Mötley Crüe, Motörhead 

The list doesn’t end!!

Please Rock Hall do the right thing and change your name!!

My Rock Hall rant

Not only fans should demand this musicians and others should also!! Why doesn’t Lady Gaga, Chris Jericho get behind this also? #RockHall #VoteIronMaiden

Finally some musicians are starting to wake up!! Thank you Paul Stanley!!

We know the fan vote doesn’t get them in it’s kinda a popularity contest Eddie Trunk. We get that!! What pisses me off is no one in the Metal community is speaking up about this. KISS had to create fan uproar to get inducted the same should be done here.

I personally wanna see Iron Maiden in there. Supposedly the Hall was created for fans to go there and see their favourite band in there. Sucks I can see why Iron Maiden doesn’t wanna be there but from a fan’s perspective I do!!! 🤘🏻

Them snubbing Metal bands only hurts them in the long run with less attendance and negative publicity. So what’s it going to be Rock Hall?

Where’s Lars Ulrich? I hear he loves Iron Maiden. Speak up man. Fight FIRE with FIRE!!!

Because the Rock Hall formed late there’s a backlog of artists “That should be in there”. And only so many get inducted each year. I’m hoping this is Iron Maiden’s year!! @metalheadmarv
