Thread: The Rock & Roll Hall oif Fame Nominees for 2019 - Who Will Be Inducted? -

    Default The Rock & Roll Hall oif Fame Nominees for 2019 - Who Will Be Inducted? -

    I know... it's not fair... but life isn't fair... but this is the world that we have to live in and so -

    Choose the likely next class for induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame -

    Up to 5 selections are allowed for this poll...

    The question being asked is "Who are the five artists who have the best chance of actually being inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame?"

    After you vote, if you wish, you may answer the following questions -

    1.) "Who (from the 15 nominees) won't get inducted even though they deserve to be?"

    2.) "Who is/are the artist(s) most worthy of induction but who have been shamefully and consistently overlooked?" - (This is the part in which you get to bitterly rail against the injustices inflicted upon the most deserving but least respected artists like... oh... for example... purely off of the top of my head... "The World's Greatest Rock & Roll Band - Herman's Hermits"...)

    This is a list of the "Biggest Rock Hall Snubs" which needs to be taken with several grains of salt because how much validity can there possibly be when neither Mott the Hoople nor Ian Hunter isn't listed? - it's also a year out of date) -

    THE ROCK & ROLL HALL OF FAME
    ANNOUNCES NOMINEES FOR 2019 INDUCTION

    Fans Can Cast Their Vote for Inductees at Rockhall.com/vote or In Person at the Museum in Cleveland
    CLEVELAND (October 9, 2018)

    — The Nominees for induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2019 are:

    Def Leppard

    Devo

    Janet Jackson

    John Prine

    Kraftwerk

    LL Cool J

    MC5

    Radiohead

    Rage Against the Machine

    Roxy Music

    Rufus featuring Chaka Khan

    Stevie Nicks

    The Cure

    The Zombies

    Todd Rundgren

    To be eligible for nomination, an individual artist or band must have released its first commercial recording at least 25 years prior to the year of nomination. Six out of 15 of the Nominees are on the ballot for the first time, including: Def Leppard, Devo, John Prine, Roxy Music, Stevie Nicks, and Todd Rundgren.

    Inductees will be announced in December 2018. The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame 2019 Induction Ceremony, presented by Klipsch Audio, will be held at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on March 29, 2019. Ticket on-sale information will be announced in January.

    Ballots will be sent to an international voting body of more than 1,000 artists, historians and members of the music industry. Factors such as an artist’s musical influence on other artists, length and depth of career and the body of work, innovation and superiority in style and technique are taken into consideration.

    The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame will again offer fans the opportunity to officially participate in the induction selection process. Beginning October 9 and continuing through 11:59 p.m. EST on December 9, 2018, fans can visit rockhall.com to cast votes for who they believe to be most deserving of induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. The top five artists, as selected by the public, will comprise a “fans’ ballot” that will be tallied along with the other ballots to choose the 2019 inductees. Fans will need to login to vote. Voting is capped at one ballot per day.

    I only picked 3. MC5 being the most worthy of those just for their seminal live album back at the tail end of the 60s. Classic album. Arguably America's first punk / metal band.

    Only three, eh? Then by default as the thread creator I shall cast the remaining votes for you -

    Vote number 4 goes to.... (drumroll) - Herman's Hermits!

    Vote number 5 goes to.... (drumroll) - The Guess Who!

    The penalty for not voting for five candidates is this -
