The nominees for this year's Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame 2021 induction have been announced, with Iron Maiden, Foo Fighters and Rage Against The Machine among the 16 names unveiled.
The three rock and metal titans join a shortlist completed by Mary J. Blige, Kate Bush, Devo, The Go-Go's, Jay-Z, Chaka Khan, Carole King, Fela Kuti, LL Cool J, New York Dolls, Todd Rundgren, Tina Turner and Dionne Warwick. These artists become eligible for nomination by the Rock Hall 25 years after the release of their first official recording – so from 1995 or before.
"This remarkable ballot reflects the diversity and depth of the artists and music the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame celebrates," says John Sykes, Chairman of Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Foundation. "These Nominees have left an indelible impact on the sonic landscape of the world and influenced countless artists that have followed them."
