Posted by James Duncan on

The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Foundation have announced their Nominees for 2023 Induction. They are Kate Bush, Sheryl Crow, Missy Elliot, Iron Maiden, Joy Division/New Order, Cyndi Lauper, George Michael, Willie Nelson, Rage Against The Machine, Soundgarden, The Soinners, A Tribe Called Quest, The White Stripes, and Warren Zevon.

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.

An international voting body of over 1,000 artists, historians, and members of the music industry vote based on factors including "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."

However, fans can also play a part in the voting and are allowed one vote per day for up to five nominees through the April 28 deadline. Visit vote.rockhall.com to participate.

The Hall states that: "The top five artists, as selected by the public, will comprise a “fans’ ballot” that will be tallied along with the other ballots to select the 2023 Inductees."

It’s clear the Hall is reaching out genre-wise clear across the board, which won’t be music to the ears of rock fans still wondering why rock artists such as Bad Company, Boston, ELP, Foreigner, Peter Frampton, Men At Work, REO Speedwagon, Styx, Sweet, The Guess Who, Toto, and more remain unrecognized. And how about newer artists like Bryan Adams, Dave Matthews Band, INXS, Motley Crue, Pixies, Smashing Pumpkins, Sonic Youth, STP, among others?

The Inductees will be announced in May 2023 and the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame 2023 Induction Ceremony will take place this fall. The exact date, venue, and ticket information will be announced later.
