The newest set of Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame nominees were recently announced, and this group is as diverse as it’s ever been. In order to be nominated, an artist must have released their first piece of music (single/album) at least 25 years to the day. 2017 has a broad selection of first time nominees which include Pearl Jam, Steppenwolf, Tupac Shakur, Bad Brains, Jane’s Addiction, Joan Baez, Electric Light Orchestra, Depeche Mode and Journey. These are accompanies by past nominees who didn’t make it into the hall previously such as The Zombies, Yes, Janet Jackson, among others.
Apart from the international voting body, remember fans can vote for their favorite artist once a day at RockHall.com.
