The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame announced the nominees for induction into the 2019 class today, and again the term "rock" is being thrown around loosely.
First timers on the ballot include Def Leppard, Stevie Nicks, Devo, John Prine, Roxy Music, and Todd Rundgren. Returning for a fourth time is rapper LL Cool J and the electronic group Kraftwerk.
Other nominees this year are Janet Jackson, MC5, Radiohead, Rage Against the Machine, Rufus featuring Chaka Khan, The Cure and The Zombies.
Where's The J. Geils Band? And how about Boston? They only had the best selling debut album of all time!
Once again, you have the opportunity to vote for your favorites by going to Rockhall.com through December 9 to cast your votes.
The top five artists, as selected by the public, will comprise a "fans' ballot" that will be tallied, along with the other ballots to choose the 2019 inductees. Voting is capped at one ballot per day.
Inductees will be announced in December. The 2019 induction ceremony will be held at Barclays Center in Brooklyn on March 29 and broadcast on HBO.
Seriously, Chaka Khan???
