Later this year, heavy metal pioneers Judas Priest are set to be inducted into the iconic Rock Hall Of Fame, yet the band’s frontman seems less than pleased with the decision. Granted the award for “Musical Excellence” as opposed to the traditional performer category, Rob Halford has stated that he found the decision “frustrating”, and claims that the band have been treated with “no respect”.

Rob Halford is “a bit pissed” Judas Priest won’t be inducted into Rock Hall as performers

Rob Halford has said he’s “a bit pissed” that Judas Priest weren’t honoured as one of the main performer inductees for the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame this year. The metal band will accept the Award for Musical Excellence at this year’s ceremony, which will take place at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California on November 5. The gong was first introduced in 2000 as the ‘Sideman’ category; it became the Award for Musical Excellence 10 years later.

Rob Halford Is Pissed Judas Priest Won’t Enter Rock Hall In Performer Category

This year, metal pioneers Judas Priest are headed into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. But they’re headed in on a kind of technicality. Priest are not among this year’s class of Hall Of Fame performer inductees; they will not be joining the main Hall alongside Eminem, Dolly Parton, Pat Benatar, and all the rest. Instead, Priest are getting the Musical Excellence Award.
