Rage Against The Machine, Def Leppard Make 2019 Rock Hall Ballot

Irene MckinneyOct 10, 2018

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame recently released their shortlist for nominees up for induction, and it was revealed that Janet Jackson and LL Cool J are amongst a few on that list.

Def Leppard, Rage Against the Machine and the MC5 are among the hard rock and alternative rock bands nominated for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame next year.

The impressive members of The Hall now includes bands/artists across a variety of genres, including Aretha Franklin, Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, KISS, David Bowie, ABBA, Billy Joel, Fleetwood Mac, Aerosmith and the Eagles.

The 2019 inductees are slated to be announced in December.

LL Cool J, Kraftwerk, and The Zombies have also been nominated multiple times before but were never inducted.

It's the first time Def Leppard, Devo, John Prine, Roxy Music, Stevie Nicks and Todd Rundgren have made the list. They will then be tallied as a "fan's ballot" and will be factored in with the other ballots to decide the 2019 class.

It's that time again - time for opinions to fly, arguments to be had and fan votes to be cast.

Stevie Nicks is already in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Fleetwood Mac. Voting is capped at one ballot per day.

The ceremony is set to take place on March 29, 2019 in Brooklyn, New York at the Barclays Center.
