The Rock ‘N’ Roll Hall Of Fame has just released its short list of nominees for their “Class of 2019”. This year’s list features six first-year nominees in addition to a selection of returning acts who have been nominated previously but have not been inducted.

The final list of inductees is scheduled to be announced in December. The 2019 induction ceremony is scheduled for March 29th at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Last year saw Bon Jovi, The Cars & Dire Straits lead the “Class of 2018” as they were amongst the inductees. We wanted to take a look at some of our favourites nominated this year.

 

DEF LEPPARD

A JACK favourite! They were one of the biggest metal bands of the ’80s led by hits “Pour Some Sugar On Me” and “Photograph”.

ROXY MUSIC

Roxy Music, a little artsy British band, is best known for their romantic hits “More Than This” and “Love is the Drug.”

THE CURE

The Cure have been nominated for induction to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame again. The beloved post-punk band have been eligible for The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame since 2004, but were last nominated in 2011 behind hits like “Friday I’m In Love”, “Never Enough” and “Love Cats”. If Kenny Jones votes enough, they’re bound to get in this year 😉

STEVIE NICKS

Stevie Nicks was inducted with Fleetwood Mac in 1998. But she’s maintained an active solo career with her biggest hits coming in the 1980s, like “Edge of Seventeen,” “Stand Back” and the Tom Petty duet, “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around.”

JANET JACKSON

While you might not hear a ton of Janet Jackson on JACK, game respects game! There is no denying her influence or talent; she carved out her own remarkable career from under the shadows of her famous brothers. This is Janet Jackson’s fourth year nominated… is four times a charm? This video is worth watching just for the outfits and killer dance moves!

 

Here is the full list of 2019 nominees:

Stevie Nicks* (already an inductee as a member of Fleetwood Mac), Def Leppard, John Prine, Roxy Music, Devo, Todd Rundgren, LL Cool J, Rage Against The Machine, Janet Jackson, Radiohead, The Cure, Kraftwerk, MC5, The Zombies, Rufus featuring Chaka Khan.
