Soundgarden, Rage Against the Machine, The White Stripes, Iron Maiden and Kate Bush are among the nominees to be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2023.
The other nominees include Joy Division and New Order, Sheryl Crow, Warren Zevon, Missy Elliott, Cyndi Lauper, George Michael, Willie Nelson, The Spinners and A Tribe Called Quest.
The White Stripes, Sheryl Crow, Warren Zevon, Missy Elliott, Joy Division and New Order, Cyndi Lauper, George Michael and Willie Nelson are on the ballot for the fist time. The White Stripes and Missy Elliott are being inducted in their first year of eligibility, which comes 25 years after an artist’s “first commercial recording.”
“This remarkable list of nominees reflects the diverse artists and music that the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame honors and celebrates,” says John Sykes, chairman of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Foundation. “These artists have created their own sounds that have impacted generations and influenced countless others that have followed in their footsteps.”
The inductees will be announced in May, and will be chosen by over 1,000 ballots submitted by artists and other music industry professionals. You can take part in a “fans’ ballot,” which will be submitted as one entry featuring the five artists receiving the most votes. Voting is open now through April 28.
The 2023 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will take place this fall. For more info, visit RockHall.com.
