As part of this year’s first-time nominees for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, Dolly Parton, Eminem, Lionel Richie, Duran Duran, and A Tribe Called Quest all received nominations.
Rage Against the Machine, Pat Benatar, Carly Simon, Judas Priest, and Beck are among the 17 artists and groups nominated for Rock Hall induction, according to a Cleveland-based institution.
Simon and Beck are also in their first year of eligibility.
There will be an induction ceremony for this year’s class later this year, which will be announced in May.
As part of this year’s ballot, we recognize a wide range of incredible artists who have had a profound impact on the sound of youth culture,” said John Sykes, president of the organization running the Rock Hall.
The first commercial recording must have been released at least 25 years before an artist is eligible for induction.
As well as Kate Bush, DEVO, Eurythmics, Fela Kuti, MC5 and the New York Dolls, there are six other nominees.
