Stevie Nicks, Def Leppard, The Cure, Radiohead and Janet Jackson all make the cut, along with Kraftwerk, Rage Against The Machine and LL Cool J.

According to the NY Times, this is the fifth time that LL Cool J has been nominated for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

Janet Jackson, a five-time Grammy victor, will have a third chance to gain induction after failing to make it in her first two times on the ballot.

The winners will be announced in December, with the induction ceremony taking place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, on March 29, 2019.

It could be second time lucky for Radiohead, who had their first nomination past year.


For the seventh year running, fans will be able to have their say in the Fan Vote, with the five artists who receive the most votes making up a "fan's ballot" that will help determine who makes it in.

To be eligible in 2018, each artist has to have released a single or an album in or before 1993. Shortly after voting concludes, the inductees will be announced.

The Rock Hall revealed the complete list of 2019 nominees - 15 acts in all - on Tuesday morning (Oct. 9).

Gaining their first nominations in 2019 are Akron's finest New Wave weirdos Devo, Sheffield rockers Def Leppard, and the hugely influential British band Roxy Music. It counts as just one voice among the hundreds of other ballots.
