Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame CEO Greg Harriss talked to Audacy about Iron Maiden’s rejection from this year’s class of inductees, and the band will “eventually gonna get in”.
Harris added that the odds of NWOBHM giants getting inducted in the future are “90%”:
“We love that people care, that they care if they’re in or out, and that their fans care. Now the truth is anybody that’s nominated, the odds are good that they’re eventually gonna get in. In fact, I think it may be as high as 90 percent [that they] eventually go in.
“Rage Against the Machine, this was their sixth time, I believe, fifth time on the ballot or sixth time. And so sometimes it takes a while. But let’s see where it lands.
”Right now, let’s celebrate this year’s class, and we can start to debate about next year’s class once the spotlight is off of this year’s class.”
