SOUNDGARDEN And JUDAS PRIEST Among Leaders Of ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME Fan Vote

Pat Benatar, THE DOOBIE BROTHERS and SOUNDGARDEN are leading the fan vote for this year's Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame induction class.

Nearly 1.4 million votes have already been cast since voting began. Fans can cast their vote at the museum in Cleveland and on its web site. They can also vote on Google by searching "Rock Hall Fan Vote" or any nominee name plus "vote" through January 10.

Fans can vote for up to five nominees every day.

As of around 10:00 p.m. ET Saturday night, Pat Benatar received 149,831 votes; THE DOOBIE BROTHERS 134,982; SOUNDGARDEN 127,652; DEPECHE MODE 114,444; and JUDAS PRIEST 108,286.

The top five artists selected by the public will comprise a "fan ballot" that will be tallied and factored in, along with the other ballots sent to approximately 1,000 artists, historians and members of the music industry.

The top Rock Hall vote-getters will be announced in January and inducted on May 2, 2020 at Cleveland's Public Hall, with the event airing live.

To be eligible for this year's ballot, each nominee's first single or album had to be released in 1994 or earlier.
