Radiohead, Rage Against The Machine and Depeche Mode are among the nominees for the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame class of 2018.
To be eligible for the Rock and Roll Hall Fame, a band or artist must have released a single or album in 1992 or earlier.
Joining them on the ballot list is such artist as Bon Jovi, Judas Priest, the Cars, Dire Straits, Eurythmics, Kate Bush, J. Geils Band, LL Cool J, MC5, the Meters, the Moody Blues, Rufus featuring Chaka Khan, Nina Simone, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Link Wray and the Zombies.
While Radiohead released A Moon Shaped Pool last year, it was 1992’s single “Creep” that put them on the map. Over the course of their 25+ year career, Radiohead has continued to push the boundaries of their music.
Rage Against the Machine’s self-titled debut exploded onto the scene in late 1992, and really came into it’s own in 1993. It has such hits as “Killing in the Name” and “Bullet in the Head”, and rightly earns their place in the 2018 nominee’s list.
This is the fifth nomination for J. Geils Band, the fourth for LL Cool J and the Meters, the third for the Cars, MC5 and the Zombies and the second for Bon Jovi, Depeche Mode, Rufus featuring Chaka Khan and Link Wray.
Keeping up with the Hall’s new standard, each past member of each band will also be honoured – meaning that former members of Depeche Mode, Bon Jovi, Judas Priest and Dire Straights are also listed on the ballot.
To have your say, you have until December 5th to vote over at the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame’s website!
