"For 20-plus years STYX has been eligible for induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. Their influence and accomplishments warrant their induction alongside their peers," stated Ken Shafer, one of the fan organizers who spearheaded a Change.org petition to appeal to the Hall Of Fame on STYX's behalf. "We created our online petition to demonstrate to the Hall that fans of STYX want to see them receive this recognition. Our hopes are that the Hall will recognize this and at the very least put STYX on a ballot for inclusion."
"We all feel the band deserves to be in the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame and would like to see the band inducted while many of the band members are healthy enough to attend a ceremony if there indeed will still be ceremonies," commented STYX manager Charlie Brusco in reference to 2020's virtual induction. "We welcome the fan support."
