The Monkees are your favorite choice for Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction in 2019

The Monkees are your overwhelmingly favorite band to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2019. They received 46% of support in our recent poll about snubbed rock groups. Of the dozen choices in our poll, the only other band to have double digit votes was Three Dog Night with 17%.

The results might be a good sign for both artists. Four bands at the top of our poll last year — Bon Jovi, The Cars, Dire Straits and The Moody Blues — were all finally inducted in 2018 after many years of waiting. Here are the results for our other recent polls about female artists (won by Cher) and male artists (won by George Michael).
