2015 Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame Nominees Announced
  |  @   |  

It’s that time of year again when the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame puts forth its nominees for induction into its hallowed halls. Maybe it’s just me, but I have to say, this year’s ballot is the least exciting one that I can recall.

Perhaps the biggest surprises are the inclusion of Green Day and Nine Inch Nails, both of which released their first albums in 1989, meaning that they have just passed the 25-year qualification for eligibility. Also, in the “How are they not already in?” category we have Stevie Ray Vaughn, War, Kraftwerk, and The Paul Butterfield Blues Band. Rounding out the list of nominees is: N.W.A, The Smiths, Lou Reed (solo work), Sting (solo work),Chic, Joan Jett & the Blackhearts, The Marvelettes, The Spinners, and Bill Withers.
