Rage Against The Machine, Def Leppard Make 2019 Rock Hall Ballot

10 October 2018

The induction ceremony, presented by Klipsch Audio, will be held next April.

Nine of the 15 artists have been nominated before-and Nicks first became an inductee 20 years ago with Lindsey Buckingham, Mick Fleetwood, Peter Green, Danny Kirwan, Christine McVie, John McVie and Jeremy Spencer, when Fleetwood Mac was added to the Hall of Fame.

The impressive members of The Hall now includes bands/artists across a variety of genres, including Aretha Franklin, Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, KISS, David Bowie, ABBA, Billy Joel, Fleetwood Mac, Aerosmith and the Eagles.

Meanwhile, British bands Radiohead, The Cure, and The Zombies, along with American rapper LL Cool J, German experimental music group Kraftwerk, and 1960s rockers MC5 were among those bidding for induction once again. Six of the nominees are on the ballot for the first time, including Def Leppard, Prine, Roxy Music, Devo, Nicks and Rundgren. The top five in the public poll forms one ballot, which is weighted the same as the rest of the submitted ballots.

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

The 2019 inductees are slated to be announced in December. They will be announced in December and inducted into the Hall of Fame at a ceremony in March in NY. Ticket on-sale information will be announced in January.
