Do Judas Priest belong in the Rock Hall?

It’s been a running complaint, how little heavy metal is represented in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. As the conspiracy goes — and there’s probably some truth to this — the Hall has more or less aligned with the tastes of Jann Wenner and the cognoscenti of senior writers at Rolling Stone magazine, and famously, they’ve been pretty thin on the ground when it comes to heavy metal coverage over the years, and for that matter, progressive rock coverage.

And the roll call of inductees bears this out. Arguments about who’s metal and who’s not aside, there’s been Aerosmith in 2001, AC/DC in 2003, Black Sabbath in 2006, Van Halen in 2007, Metallica in 2009, Guns N’ Roses in 2012, Rush in 2013, Kiss in 2014, and Deep Purple in 2016. In other words, out of batches of inductees for each of the 30 years, hard-ish music has been represented a single time, in nine of those 30 years.

Now, every angry metalhead in his (and very occasionally, her) NWOBHM patch-festooned jean jacket will argue up and down about his favorite band that is missing. The usual shortlist including the likes of — let’s start with three umlaut bands — Blue Öyster Cult, Motörhead and Mötley Crüe. Also, there’s UFO, Thin Lizzy, Megadeth, Anthrax, Slayer, even Ted Nugent, and above all of these, Iron Maiden. But there’s a consensus growing that the biggest travesty of an omission would be Birmingham’s second batch of bashers after Black Sabbath, namely Judas Priest (we’ll worry about Diamond Head and Napalm Death in another few decades).

Re: Do Judas Priest belong in the Rock Hall?

My vision of the hall would actually be a lot more exclusive than the one we have. It wouldn't shun genres like metal and prog though.

In any case, Priest definitely should be in the one we have and probably in my hall as well.

Yes, along with Maiden, Motorhead and Slayer (to start). The history of metal doesn't go Sabbath then Metallica as the HOF seems to think.
