The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is getting ready for the 2018 ceremony, and has already released the full list of nominees who are proposed to be inducted next year. The condition for the artists to receive a nomination was to have had their first record released at least 25 years ago. Among the nominees, there are artists who have been proposed before to enter the Hall of Fame, as well as bands who make their first entry on the list.
Nineteen musicians are waiting for a place in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
The full list of nominees for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame contains 19 musicians, nine of which are at their first nomination. Among these nine artists, there are two bands who most surely are an important part of everybody’s childhood and teenage years. Both bands released their debut album precisely 25 years ago, so they fit perfectly on the list.
These two popular bands are no other than Radiohead and Rage Against The Machine. The seven other bands who make a first-time entry on the nominee list of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame include Judas Priest, Dire Straits, Nina Simone, Eurythmics, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Kate Bush, and The Moody Blues.
