Motley Crue Member Speaks On Hall of Fame Snub

Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx says that “people get too worked up” about which artists get inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame via Blabbermouth.

Even though artists are eligible for the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame 25 years after the release of their first album or single, iconic hard rock and metal bands like Motley Crue (which has been eligible since 2006) and Iron Maiden have yet to be recognized by the institution, which inducted Guns N’ Roses in that group’s first year of eligibility.

Crue won the 2019 “Voice Your Choice” in-museum Rock Hall fan vote but failed to make the list of nominees for the Class Of 2020. The band saw its votes surge when its biopic “The Dirt”, premiered on Netfix in March 2019.

On Sunday (December 17), Sixx took to his account on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter, to write:

“I think people get too worked up about the RRHF. If you get in that’s cool and if not, it’s not a big deal. It’s not some elite club that defines you. It’s an award. None of us hopefully make music just for awards. I do like the idea of jamming with other musicians at the ceremony.”

Meanwhile, In an October 2020 interview with “CLE Rocks” podcast, Crue drummer Tommy Lee was asked about Sixx’s previous assertion that he would “probably decline” the Rock Hall nomination. Tommy said:

“I get Nikki’s, like, you know what? There’s a bunch of people that are in there that he doesn’t agree with, and, yeah, I might not agree with that either. And it seems like just fucking anybody’s in there now. I get his disappointment with that. But at the end of the day, for me, dude, it would be a fucking honor regardless. Because there is a bunch of people that deserve to be there. I wouldn’t kick it out of bed, you know? [Laughs]”
