Foo Fighters, Iron Maiden and Rage Against The Machine are among the 2021 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominees.
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation Chairman John Sykes said, “This remarkable ballot reflects the diversity and depth of the artists and music the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame celebrates. These nominees have left an indelible impact on the sonic landscape of the world and influenced countless artists that have followed them.”
To be eligible for nomination, an individual artist or band must have released its first commercial recording at least 25 years ago. Foo Fighters and Iron Maiden are among seven of the nominees who are on the ballot for the first time. The Go-Go’s, Jay-Z, Carole King (as a performer), Fela Kuti and Dionne Warwick are also first-time nominees.
Inductees will be announced in May, and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 2021 Induction Ceremony will take place in Cleveland, Ohio this fall. You can see a full list of this year’s nominees below.
