Metallica Snubbed by Rock Hall!

The 2008 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominees were announced today, but incredibly Metallica was not among them. Heading one of the strongest first year eligibility classes in recent years, Metallica were the one band widely believed to be a lock for induction. In fact, Future Rock Hall rates Metallica with the highest induction chances of any eligible artist.

Metallica were thought to have been Rock Hall favorites, having had the honor of inducting Black Sabbath (and performing for them) in 2006.

There are plenty of Hall of Fame artists who were not inducted in their first year of eligibility, such as AC/DC, Queen, Aerosmith, Michael Jackson, Pink Floyd, and many more. There is little doubt that Metallica will be inducted into the Rock Hall at some point in the near future, it just won't be in 2008.
