The English heavy metal giants Judas Priest guitarist Ritchie Faulkner broke his silence on his band’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction and blasted them by saying, “they had no credibility.”

As some of you might know, Judas Priest have been eligible for induction since 1999. Previously, the band failed to join to Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2018 because they hadn’t received enough votes for induction. This year, in 2020, the band were in the ballot once again, but they still failed to join over there because they still had no enough votes in the class of 2020.

Recently, after a fan’s words that he finds that behavior so offensive to Judas Priest, Ritchie revealed his thoughts and blasted the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame through his Twitter page. When Judas Priest fan touched the band’s longevity and also stated its “injustice,” Ritchie said:

“If the rock hall had any credibility whatsoever, I’d agree with you. But it doesn’t. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, to be playing and recording music with the best fans all over the world after 50 years is more of an accolade than a trophy on the shelf imho.”

Later, another fan chimed in and said Rock and Roll Hall of Fame that “it’s a commercial enterprise,” Ritchie replied: “It’s no accolade if it’s a rock hof with [a] minimal rock in it. Change the name or induct bands like Priest, Motörhead, and countless others, it might mean something. Until then it’s almost more credible to NOT be in it. A 50-year career in JPs case with the best fans is the real accolade.”
