    I think for the most part they got it right this year. I'm curious why Janet Jackson and NWA were included? That's as stupid as putting Ricky Skaggs in the Rap HOF if there is such a thing.

    The nominees for the 2016 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction have just been announced, and Nine Inch Nails and Deep Purple are among the 15 contenders.
    This marks the second year that
    Nine Inch Nails have been on the ballot, after failing to get in on their first year of eligibility last year. Deep Purple, meanwhile, have been eligible for more than 15 years already, having long been mentioned by the hard rock community as a glaring snub in years past. Perhaps 2016 will finally be their year?
    Rock is also represented on the ballot by the
    Cars, Cheap Trick, Yes, the Smiths and Steve Miller, while other nominees include N.W.A., Janet Jackson, Chicago, Chaka Khan, Chic, Los Lobos, The J.B.’s and the Spinners.
    Acts become
    eligible for nomination into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 25 years after the release of their first record, but can continue to be on the ballot each year if they fail to get inducted in prior years.
    As it has done the past few years, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is offering fans the chance to vote for their favorite nominees. But keep in mind that the entire fan vote counts for just 1 of more than 800 ballots cast by “artists, historians and members of the music industry.” But if you’d still like to take the time to vote, you can do so
    here.
    The 2016 inductees are expected to be announced in December, so stay tuned to see which acts will make the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Usually, five or six of the nominees get in each year.

    How is Yes not in the Hall of Fame? Cripes, how many albums with how many hits over how many years?

    Chic is not a rock band, and Disco is nothing more than a fad.

    The Cars and Cheap Trick get their first nominations even though they have been eligible for over a decade and Green Day are first ballot inductions? How is this right?

    This.
    They're putting in disco, 80s pop and rap acts and they haven't even nominated the guy who did "Lawyers, Guns and Money."
    The whole enterprise is a corrupt joke.

    Cheap Trick is too young for the R&R HOF.

    fuck. I've been saying this since they inducted Urethra Franklin. Why don't they just grease up and call it the Pop Music Hall of Fame, because that's what it is.

    Listen to "Hatful of Hollow" and you may change your tune. Johnny Marr is a guitarist for the ages.
