2014 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Nominees Announced

The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame announced quite a nominee class!  Grunge rockers Nirvana, disco group Chic, Gene Simmons and Kiss, Hall and Oates, college radio heroes the Replacements, New Orleans funkmeisters the Meters, sweet-voiced Linda Ronstadt; and pioneering gangsta rappers N.W.A., the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Deep Purple, Peter Gabriel, LL Cool J, Cat Stevens, Link Wray, Yes and the Zombies.

The list spans more than six decades of rock and pop history and includes both major pop successes — Chic, Hall and Oates, Gabriel, Ronstadt and Yes all hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 singles chart — and influential players.

“In many ways the most notorious group in the history of rap,” writes Allmusic.com’s Stephen Thomas Erlewine. Members Ice Cube, Eazy-E and Dr. Dre all went on to even bigger things, with Dr. Dre, in particular, becoming perhaps the most notable producer in hip-hop history.

This is quite a class. Here’s a few videos from some of the nominees:



Voting will be open to fans. The top five vote-getters will be listed on a “fans’ ballot” that will be tallied along with the other ballots for the Class of 2014. The inductees are chosen by a secret ballot of 600 voters, a group that includes previous inductees, music industry veterans, historians and critics. All eligible nominees released their first single or album at least 25 years before the year of nomination.

Last year’s class included Rush, Randy Newman, Public Enemy, Donna Summer and Quincy Jones.

The 29th Annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will be held in April 2014 in New York. The ceremony will be broadcast on HBO.
