When the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame announced that Motörhead was among the potential nominees up for induction for the Class of 2020 along with Soundgarden, Judas Priest, Thin Lizzy, Pat Benatar and T. Rex, the news was bittersweet.

It was good because rock legends Motörhead are long overdue for induction and could finally see it next year. But it also left a salty taste in fans' mouths because among the members of Motörhead, it only included Lemmy Kilmister, "Fast" Eddie Clarke, and Phil "Philthy Animal" Taylor in the nomination.

But thanks to their fans, longstanding members Phil Campbell (31 years) and Mikkey Dee (23 years) have been added to the band's nomination. "Thanks to everyone who spoke up loudly," they band wrote on their social media. "Thanks to the #ROCKHALL2020 for listening and adding Phil & Mikkey. All for one and one for all! #motörhead."

Motörhead's surviving members also encouraged fans to cast their votes in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's "Fans' Ballot" which will be running from October 15th, 2019 through January 10th, 2020. The top five artists as voted by the public will make up the "fans' ballot" that will be tallied along ballots cast by artists, producers and music industry figures to decide on next year's inductees. Fans can cast their votes once per day by going to www.rockhall.com/vote.
