A Running List of Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame Omissions

on October 09, 2018, 9:17am

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has revealed its list of nominees, and once again, people are pissed. At this point, it’s an annual tradition and one that will certainly never fade away.

This year’s class of nominees include Radiohead, Rage Against The Machine, Janet Jackson, Roxy Music, Stevie Nicks, The Cure, Def Leppard, Todd Rundgren, Rufus and Chaka Khan, LL Cool J, The Zombies, Devo, John Prine, MC5, and Kraftwerk.

In a surprise twist, zero artists eligible for the first time this year were nominated, which includes OutKast, Beck, Jeff Buckley, The Roots, Dave Matthews Band, and Snoop Dogg.

The good news is that these handful of talented bastards aren’t alone and join a running list of omissions by the Cleveland institution. During Pearl Jam’s induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2017, bassist Jeff Ament famously wore a t-shirt listing many of the artists and bands who have not yet been inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
