Meet The 2019 Nominees For The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame”

The list is completed by Roxy Music, Devo, Kraftwerk, the Zombies, MC5, John Prine, Rufus featuring Chaka Khan, LL Cool J and Janet Jackson.

Meanwhile, British bands Radiohead, The Cure, and The Zombies, along with American rapper LL Cool J, German experimental music group Kraftwerk, and 1960s rockers MC5 were among those bidding for induction once again.

Six of the nominees among the potential class of 2019 are on the ballot for the first time, and more than a few of the others have been passed over in the past.

The artists have been chosen by the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame Foundation's nominating committee.

It could be second time lucky for Radiohead, who had their first nomination a year ago.

In order to be eligible for this year's ballot, artists or bands need to have released their first single or album in 1993 or earlier.

Despite its name, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has been accepting nominees from all genres, regardless of their connection to rock'n'roll.

Within hours of the nominees being named on Tuesday, Nicks led the fan ballot with more than 38,000 votes, followed by Def Leppard with some 33,000, according to the Hall of Fame website. Voting begins today (October 9) and runs through December 9.

The ceremony is set to take place on March 29, 2019 in Brooklyn, New York at the Barclays Center.
