Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 2019: Def Leppard, Radiohead, Todd Rundgren, Stevie Nicks Top Stacked List of Nominees

It’s that time again — time for opinions to fly, arguments to be had and fan votes to be cast. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame announced its official list of nominees for 2019 on Tuesday morning, and it’s a pretty eclectic list of artists spanning genres, decades and styles this time.

The following are all up for potential induction to the Hall as part of the class of 2019:

Def Leppard

Devo

Janet Jackson

John Prine

Kraftwerk

LL Cool J

Radiohead

MC5 (related: read our recent chat with Wayne Kramer)

Rage Against the Machine

Stevie Nicks

Roxy Music

Todd Rundgren (related: Enjoy a RockCellarTV segment with Rundgren regarding the recent Utopia reunion tour)

The Cure

Rufus & Chaka Khan

The Zombies

Fan voting information is up now at the Rock Hall’s official site.

This marks the first year of nomination for Def Leppard, Devo, John Prine, Roxy Music, Stevie Nicks and Todd Rundgren, as the other acts on the list have been eligible for induction in past years.

From this new list will be a crop of fresh inductees to the Hall, following 2018’s class that included the Cars, Bon Jovi, Dire Straits, the Moody Blues, Nina Simone and Sister Rosetta Tharpe.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame may have its share of critics, but it remains an institution of rock and roll music — so early congrats to whichever acts from the new list make it in next spring!

    Judging by this list, we have exhausted all potential nominees for a while.

    Kraftwerk? The Cure? Devo? Really……………..?

    I could make a case for Chaka Khan, but it seems like the Baseball Hall of Fame inducting .280 hitters at this point.

    Is Johnny Rivers in? If not, why isn’t he on the ballot? Who comes up with the acts, anyway?
