However, one rock icon is calling out the Hall for the groups that haven’t been included. Twisted Sister lead singer Dee Snider recently called the Hall of Fame “arrogant” and “elitist” for not including a number of beloved metal bands.

Dee Snider asked fans to use their voting power to select Iron Maiden for the 2021 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction class, claiming that’s the only way for them to get in, according to Complete Music Update. “The RnR Hall committee members are arrogant elitist a**holes who look down on metal & other bands that sell millions because we’re not their definition of cool. The fan vote is their ‘throwing a bone’ to the peasants,” said Snider.

Currently, Iron Maiden is fourth in the fan vote, behind Fela Kuti, Tina Turner and the Foo Fighters. Like Snider, many metal fans are hoping this is the year Iron Maiden makes it in. If they don’t, Snider will surely have something to say about it.
