The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is an institution with the power to both honor and snub. With every band inducted into the Hall, it seems like there are dozens of acts passed over despite iconic status.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Class of 2024 inductees include Mary J. Blige, Cher, Dave Matthews Band, Foreigner, Peter Frampton, Kool & the Gang, Ozzy Osbourne and A Tribe Called Quest. Therefore, we were able to check a few off our list of artists we felt were overdue for nominations.

But there are still plenty that haven't had their moment yet. In this gallery, you'll see Iron Maiden, Slayer, Pantera and dozens of others. For some reason, most of these acts have never even received a nomination, while others have been nominated but quickly forgotten after not making the cut.

In this gallery, we've only included artists who are already eligible, meaning they released their first significant recording at least 25 years before the nomination year.
