There are some who belong, some head scratchers and one glaring omission. Again. 

Rap act Beastie Boys, Red Hot Chili Peppers, disco queen Donna Summer, songwriter Laura Nyro, Donovan and War who have all been on the list before.

New nominees include: Guns n’ Roses, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, Heart, Cure, Faces/Small Faces, R&B acts Rufus with Chaka Khan and The Spinners, blues master Freddie King and rapper Eric B. & Rakim.

Other artists that were eligible but didn’t make the ballot list: Soundgarden, Minneapolis favorites The Jayhawks, alt rockers Lemonheads, They Might Be Giants, Yo La Tengo and Matthew Sweet. R&B artist Kenneth ‘Babyface’ Edmonds, singer/song writer Lyle Lovett, boy “band” New Kids on the Block and composer Yanni.

The group that should be on the list that isn’t? Rush.

A few questions: Should Faces and Small Faces be lumped together? They’re two different bands. Should rappers, New Kids on the Block and Yanni even be considered? Since when was wussy boy band crap and Yanni considered “rock”? If Guns n’ Roses are voted in, will Axl show up on time? Will the original lineup reunite or is there too much bad blood? Does the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame even matter when garbage like NKOTB and Yanni are eligible for consideration and Rush is not?

To be eligible for nomination it must be 25 years since the artist’s first recording. To check out more details on this years possible nominees, go HERE.
