The Rock ‘N’ Roll Hall Of Fame has just released its short list of nominees for their “Class of 2019”.

We expect to see the final list of inductees in December, followed by the 2019 induction ceremony on March 29th at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Last year Bon Jovi, The Cars & Dire Straits were inducted. We wanted to take a look at some of our favourites nominated this year.



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


Once again The Cure have been nominated. They have been eligible for The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame since 2004, were last nominated in 2011 thanks to their hugely successful 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 made her way into the Hall Of Fame with Fleetwood Mac originally back in 1998. Now she is nominated as a solo artist thanks to “Edge of Seventeen” and “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around” which she performed with the late Tom Petty.


While you might not hear a ton of Janet Jackson on JACK, game respects game!  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.
