That hallowed music spot in Cleveland is about to get some new blood. The 2016 nominees for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame have been announced.
This year’s nominees includes Janet Jackson, Chaka Khan, The Cars, Chicago, Cheap Trick, The JB’s, Los Lobos, and Steve Miller. They are joined by Nine Inch Nails, N.W.A., Yes, Deep Purple, The Smiths, The Spinners, and Chic, who have all been nominated before.
To be eligible for induction, an artist’s debut single or album has to be at least 25 years old. Check out the full list of nominees below, and head over to the Hall of Fame’s website to vote in their “fan ballot.” The top five fan favorites will receive additional votes like they were casted from a traditional Rock Hall ballot. The inductees will be announced in December.
