Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Announce Nominees For 2021 Induction | Music News


The Rock And Roll Hall of Fame have announced the nominees for the 2021 induction. This year, there are 16 nominees from across all spectrum of music including Mary J. Blige, Kate Bush, Devo, Foo Fighters, the Go-Go’s, Iron Maiden and Jay-Z.


The list continues with Chaka Khan, Carole King, Fela Kuti, LL Cool J, New York Dolls, Rage Against the Machine, Todd Rundgren, Tina Turner and Dionne Warwick.


“This remarkable ballot reflects the diversity and depth of the artists and music the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame celebrates,” said Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Foundation chairman John Sykes.


To be eligible, artists or groups must have released their first commercial recording at least 25 years ago. This is the first year of eligibility for the first commercial release of world-famous American rapper Jay-Z and rock legends Foo Fighters.


In addition, this year’s Rock & Roll Hall of Fame announced six female nominees, an improvement from the only three nominees from the 2020 class. Currently, women make up only 8% of those inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.


Several of this year’s nominees have already been honoured: Carole King was inducted with Gerry Goffin as a non-performer in 1990, and Tina Turner with Ike Turner in 1991.


The list of inductees will be announced in May and the ceremony will be held in Cleveland this fall. Fans can vote for the inductees as of now.
