article imageOp-Ed: Judas Priest snubbed by Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Class of 2020

By Markos Papadatos     Jan 17, 2020 in Music
The iconic heavy metal band Judas Priest was severely snubbed by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's Class of 2020, which is quite a glaring omission.
The inductees for the Class of 2020 were announced on January 15, and Judas Priest did not make the final shortlist, which was partly comprised of pop, rap and electronic acts that made it in: the late Whitney Houston, the late Notorious B.I.G. and Depeche Mode, in addition to rock artists Nine Inch Nails, Doobie Brothers, and T. Rex.
In the online fan vote, Judas Priest ranked in the Top 5 (along with Dave Matthews Band, Pat Benatar, Soundgarden, and Doobie Brothers).
Overall, Judas Priest deserves to be immortalized in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame representing the heavy metal genre along with such inductees as Black Sabbath and Metallica. They have served as a musical influence to countless metal acts that followed into their footsteps and they are still active to this day, touring the world and releasing their critically-acclaimed Firepower album, which Digital Journal described as "refreshing."
