Since the beginning of the year, over 80,000 fans visiting the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame have been making their voices heard in a poll set at the museum in Cleveland. Visitors have the option to cast their vote for who they believe should be inducted into the Hall of Fame, and the current leaders are Mötley Crüe, Blink-182 and Iron Maiden.

Although the poll is completely separate of the official fan vote for nominated artists, the rest of the list consists of artists like The Dave Matthews Band, Cher, Styx, Boston and Weezer.

With more than 80,000 votes cast, here's the current Top 8 in the Fan Vote at the @rockhall

Some band that will be eligible for induction in 2020 include Weezer, Korn, Oasis, Sleater-Kinney and Wilco. There is also a long list of artists that have been eligible for years, but have never been inducted like Mötley Crüe, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Motörhead, Pantera, Soundgarden, and Rage Against the Machine. Blink-182 won't be eligible for induction until 2020.
