The 2023 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame fan vote has ended. Over 6-million votes were cast.

The Top 5 artists are:

  1. 1,040,000 votes – George Michael (“Faith“)
  2. 928,000 votes – Cyndi Lauper (“Girls Just Wanna Have Fun“)
  3. 634,000 votes – Warren Zevon (“Werewolves Of London“)
  4. 449,000 votes – Iron Maiden (“The Number Of The Beast,” “Run To The Hills“)
  5. 427,000 votes – Soundgarden (Black Hole Sun,” “Fell On Black Days“)

The Top 5 artists will gain one extra vote added to the official votes cast by members of the Rock Hall, which includes musicians, business leaders and other industry professionals.

George Michael, a pop singer, first gained notice as the main singer for Wham! (“Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go”) before going solo leaning heavily on ballads and duets.

Often the winner of the fan vote is inducted into the Hall.

Sheryl Crow (#8), Rage Against The Machine (#11) and White Stripes (#12) were among the 14 performers nominated.

2023 inductees will be announced in May. The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame 2023 Induction Ceremony will take place later this year.
