This morning on SiriusXM VOLUME, Feedback hosts Nik Carter and Lori Majewski revealed this year’s nominees for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. It’s a strong mix of diversity and genres, and as Nik said during the broadcast, the list is one of the hippest in a long time.
Here are the artists up for one of the five final spots:
- Def Leppard (1st nomination)
- Stevie Nicks (1st solo nomination)
- Rage Against the Machine
- The Cure
- Devo (1st nomination)
- Janet Jackson
- LL Cool J
- Roxy Music (1st nomination)
- Todd Rundgren (1st nomination)
- John Prine (1st nomination)
- Rufus featuring Chaka Khan
- The Zombies
Fans can vote one a day for their favourite artists. The top five vote-getters will be part of a fan ballot. The final five will be announced in December and inducted March 29th, 2019 at a ceremony at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center. HBO will broadcast the event later next year.
To be eligible for nomination, an individual artist or band must have released its first commercial recording at least 25 years prior to the year of nomination. Six out of 15 of the Nominees are on the ballot for the first time, including: Def Leppard, Devo, John Prine, Roxy Music, Stevie Nicks, and Todd Rundgren.
Inductees will be announced in December 2018. The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame 2019 Induction Ceremony, presented by Klipsch Audio, will be held at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on March 29, 2019. Ticket on-sale information will be announced in January.
Ballots will be sent to an international voting body of more than 1,000 artists, historians and members of the music industry. Factors such as an artist’s musical influence on other artists, length and depth of career and the body of work, innovation and superiority in style and technique are taken into consideration.
Fans can also visit the Museum in Cleveland to cast their vote in person using the Voice Your Choice interactives adjacent to the 2018 Inductee exhibit in the new Hall of Fame Gallery, presented by KeyBank.
