The final votes are in for the 2020 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The lucky top 5 are:
Dave Matthews band (1,005,657 votes), Pat Benatar (882,207 votes), The Doobie Brothers (784,729 votes), Soundgarden (722,931 votes) and Judas Priest (675,434 votes)
History has shown that once an artist or band is in the top 5 they are likely to be inducted into the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame.
Judas Priest gave a big metal thank you to their fans on twitter:
A huge metal thank you to our Priest family for voting & defending Judas Priest in the fan vote for RRHoF 2020 – we made and stayed in the top five fan votes through your love and support.
Whatever the outcome we are blessed having the best metal fans in the world of heavy metal!

The 2020 Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame induction ceremony will be held at the Public Auditorium in Cleveland, Ohio, on May 2, 2020.
