Weekend Rock Question: Who Should Enter the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Next?
The annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony was held this past weekend at Cleveland’s Public Hall. Green Day, Ringo Starr, Bill Withers, Lou Reed, Joan Jett & the Blackhearts, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble, The “5″ Royales and the Paul Butterfield Blues Band all entered the institution, and every living inductee was on hand to perform.
Now we have a question for you: Who should enter the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2016? Anyone that released their first album or single in 1990 or earlier is fair game. Newly eligible acts include Smashing Pumpkins, Blur, A Tribe Called Quest, Alice in Chains and the Black Crowes. There’s obviously also a huge list of previously eligible acts, including N.W.A, the Smiths, Sonic Youth, Pixies, the Replacements, the Cure, Joy Division, New Order, Devo, Cheap Trick, Television, Yes, King Crimson, Deep Purple, Motorhead, LL Cool J, De La Soul, the New York Dolls, MC5 and Depeche Mode. Vote for whatever act you want, but please only vote once and only for a single selection.
