Rock and Roll Hall of Fame poll: Which snubbed male artist should finally be inducted in 2020?

Shockingly, no male solo artists were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame the past two years. This astounding fact follows several years of voters catching up on such artists as Neil Diamond (2011), Donovan (2012), Peter Gabriel (2014), Randy Newman (2013), Lou Reed (2015), Steve Miller (2016), Cat Stevens (2014) and Bill Withers (2015).

It’s not for a lack of choices, however. Our new poll below offers 12 male artists who have been snubbed for years despite being eligible for induction. Vote for the one man you feel most deserves to be selected for the 2020 ceremony.

We also recently offered very popular polls about which rock group you wanted next (won by The Doobie Brothers) and which female artist you would choose (won by Cher, with Tina Turner in second place).
