Bon Jovi Won the Rock n Roll Hall Fan Vote

The fan vote is in and it’s Bon Jovi in a landslide. We’ve discussed the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame at length on the show, and also gotten Buzz’s opinion about who he thinks should and should not get in. If I’m remembering correctly, Bon Jovi was a no go for Buzz. Well, the fans have voted and they certainly disagree with Buzz. Here are the numbers for the bands in the fan voting.

  1. Bon Jovi – 1,162,098 votes
  2. The Moody Blues – 947,726 votes
  3. Dire Straits – 613,726 votes
  4. The Cars – 552,707
  5. Judas Priest -538,467

Judas Priest even had a pretty heavy online campaign pushing for people to vote. But it apparently wasn’t enough to get them above number 5, at least in the fan voting. I’d be willing to bet they get in this year though.

Will Bon Jovi get in? Well, the fan vote is a good sign for them because every year they’ve had a fan vote, the winner has gotten in. Previous fan vote winners have been Rush, Kiss, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Chicago, and Journey.
