Last week, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland announced the nominees for induction next year. An unspecified number of these acts will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame next spring. The final list of inductees will be released in December. Here’s who is being considered:

  • Bon Jovi
  • Kate Bush
  • The Cars
  • Depeche Mode
  • Dire Straits
  • Eurythmics
  • J. Geils Band
  • Judas Priest
  • LL Cool J
  • MC5
  • The Meters
  • Moody Blues
  • Rage Against the Machine
  • Radiohead
  • Rufus featuring Chaka Khan
  • Nina Simone
  • Sister Rosetta Tharpe
  • Link Wray
  • The Zombies

Eligibility requires that an artist released their first commercial recording at least 25 years prior to induction, meaning the 2018 nominees’ first releases must have come no later than 1992. Ballots will be sent to a voting body of more than 900 artists, historians and members of the music industry, who will vote on the nominees based on the influence they exacted on other artists; the length and depth of their career; and body of work, innovation and superiority in style and technique, according to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
