Tuesday, September 27th, 2011

The nominees for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame have been announced. There are a total of 15 artists nominated this year, including six return nominees who are back for another try:

The Beastie Boys
Donovan
Red Hot Chili Peppers
War
Donna Summer
Laura Nyro

So if our math skills are intact, that means that there are nine new nominees this year:

Heart
Joan Jett & the Blackhearts
Rufus
Guns ‘N Roses
The Cure
Eric B. & Rakim
Freddie King
The Spinners
The Small Faces

The list was compiled by 40 critics and music experts from the HoF nominating committee, and ballots will now be sent out to 500 music critics who will vote. The induction ceremony will take place at the Cleveland Convention Center on April 14.

Who would get your vote?
