British heavy metal JUDAS PRIEST has uploaded a new video on the band’s nomination for the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame. The clip contains some of PRIEST‘s best-known songs and includes facts about the group’s 50-year career.

The top vote-getters will be announced in January and inducted May 2, 2020 at a ceremony at Cleveland’s Public Hall.

Last year, IRON MAIDEN frontman Bruce Dickinson was asked by a fan if he thinks the band should be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

He responded: “Absolutely… I actually think the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is an utter and complete load of bollocks, to be honest with you.

“It’s run by a bunch of sanctimonious bloody Americans who wouldn’t know rock and roll if it hit them in the face. They need to stop taking Prozac and start drinking f**king beer.”

Also, MAIDEN bassist Steve Harris said that he doesn’t care that his band has yet to be inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame despite the fact that it has been eligible since 2004.

He told Rolling Stone: “I don’t mind that we’re not in things like that. I don’t think about things like that. It’s very nice if people give you awards or accolades, but we didn’t get into the business for that sort of thing. I’m certainly not going to lose sleep if we don’t get any sort of award, not just that one, any award. I don’t think we deserve to have this or that necessarily. With what we do, whatever comes of it is great. Whatever doesn’t come of it is great, too.”
