Even though the Deftones have spawned the personalities of some pretty atrocious bands (linkin park, limp, etc) they still are a great band that no matter what they release, seem to be playing for the sake of playing. Deftones would get my vote for sure....whether they get in is a different story.

Should get in. Major influence of nu-metal.

They need to get in. They are truly special, and I hope they will be around for many more years. I'm a little worried about whether or not they actually WILL get in, but I'm hoping so, obviously.

I do live in Cleveland...maybe I will construct my own Deftones exhibit and try to sneak it in...right.

Deftones are one of (if not) the best band in the class of 2020. I think they deserve to get in.

There might be room to argue for them, but they'll probably never even be nominated, so it's irrelevant anyway.

They have probably the most consistency in what used to be the nu-metal movement! They are unafraid to try new things, follow their own groove, have a LOYAL fanbase, and know how to rock a crowd! Their older albums still rock and get mosh pits going (I attended one of their gigs last month and had a BLAST!) so I don't see any reason why their music won't stand the test of time! GO DEFTONES! Hope you get in!

They have my vote. One of my favorite bands. They have progressed a lot since their first record, which im not a fan of btw, however since White Pony...its been nothing but great albums. Their latest, Diamond Eyes, could be their best yet. Although I have a love for Self-Titled.

Saw these folks rock hard at Shakey Knees Music Fest. They hit the stage right before At the Drive-In. Had heard of these guys & have a few albums of theirs.

Crowd loved the show, they played for an hour. I sure enjoyed it.
