Fans Launch Petition To Get MOTÖRHEAD Inducted Into ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME

MOTÖRHEAD fans are signing a petition in an attempt to get the band inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The petition text reads as follows:

"Please induct MOTÖRHEAD into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. MOTÖRHEAD are currently celebrating their 30th Anniversary and it is, quite simply, shocking that they have not received the recognition they deserve.

"Without MOTÖRHEAD, the hard rock and metal music scenes would look very different today. They have influenced numerous bands over the years, including METALLICA, SLAYER, SEPULTURA, ZEKE, SLIPKNOT, ANTHRAX, TANK, OVERKILL, and PETER PAN SPEEDROCK.

"Despite problems with various record companies trying to limit their creative output and certain sections of the media attacking the band at every opportunity, MOTÖRHEAD have relentlessly put out strong album after strong album and toured almost constantly all over the world. They have never given up or compromised their principles, no matter what adversity has faced them, making them one of the most exciting, productive, viable live bands around today.

"As there have been several line-up changes over the years, it would be unfair to induct one particular line-up over another; every musician that has been in Motorhead has contributed something great to the band. Therefore, MOTÖRHEAD are Ian 'Lemmy' Kilmister, Philip Campbell, Michael 'Mikkey Dee' Delaouglou, Mick 'Wurzel' Burston, Philip 'Philthy Animal' Taylor, 'Fast' Eddie Clarke, Peter Gill, Brian 'Robbo' Robertson, Larry Wallis, and Lucas Fox. Special merit should be given to the 'classic' MOTÖRHEAD of Kilmister/Taylor/Clarke and the longest-serving MOTÖRHEAD of Kilmister/Campbell/Dee.

"By inducting MOTÖRHEAD into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame, you would be acknowledging all they have achieved over the years."
