The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame 2019 nominees are …

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has revealed its list of nominees, and once again, people are pissed. For some, their long-term goal is to make it into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. There are some nominees that have been around through multiple cycles as well, including four-time nominee LL Cool J. Rounding out the nominees are Def Leppard, Devo, MC5, John Prine, The Cure, Roxy Music, The Zombies, and Todd Rundgren.

It marks the first time that Sheffield rock icons Def Leppard have been nominated, with other first-timers being Nicks, Rundgren, Roxy Music, Prine and Devo.

Fans can also participate by going to rockhall.com and can cast votes for the artist they believe to be most deserving.

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. For some, the pinnacle of the list contains musings such as one day winning a Grammy award.

The top five vote-getters will be on a "fan's ballot" and included alongside the results from others sent to "more than 1,000 artists, historians and members of the music industry" who make up the Hall's voting body.

The newest entries into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame are set to be announced in December, with a ceremony to follow at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn on March 29, 2019.
