Judas Priest, Rage Against the Machine, Bon Jovi + Radiohead Among 2018 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Nominees

Subscribe to KFMX FM on

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is pretty stacked, but there’s no shortage of talent still waiting for their name to be called. And by the looks of it, there should be another stellar class entering the Rock Hall in 2018. Getting things started, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame have listed the acts in contention for a spot this year and on the hard rock and metal side, you’ve got such name talent as Judas Priest, Rage Against the Machine, Bon Jovi and MC5 on the ballot.

In order to be considered for the Rock Hall, it must be at least 25 years since the act’s first official recording (that’s 1992 for those doing the math), and nine of the 19 nominees this year are first timers on the ballot. Those nine include Rage Against the Machine, Judas Priest, Radiohead, Eurythmics, Dire Straits, Kate Bush, the Moody Blues, Nina Simone and Sister Rosetta Tharpe.

The remaining ten remaining nominees are Bon Jovi, MC5, The Cars, Depeche Mode, J. Geils Band, LL Cool J, The Meters, Rufus featuring Chaka Khan, Link Wray and the Zombies.

Ballots will be sent to the international voting body of 900 artists, historians and members of the music industry, while there will also be a fan vote that factors into the final outcome as well. As fans, you can place your vote on who you’d like to see in at the Rock Hall website. Voting starts today (Oct. 5) and continues through 11:59PM ET on Dec. 5. The top five artists, as selected by the public, will comprise a “fans ballot” that will be tallied in with the other ballots. Voting is capped at one vote per day and fans will need to log in with a Facebook or email account to vote.

The 2018 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame draft class will be announced in December, with the 2018 ceremony taking place at Public Auditorium in Cleveland on April 14, 2018. As with past years, HBO will broadcast the ceremony. Plus, SiriusXM will carry a radio broadcast of the ceremony in April. Ticketing details for the 2018 Rock Hall induction ceremony will be announced at a later date.
