The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland has announced the nominees for the 2017 induction class. This year's ballot includes first time nominees Tupac Shakur, Pearl Jam, Bad Brains, Depeche Mode, Electric Light Orchestra, Jane's Addiction, Joan Baez, Journey, and Steppenwolf. The other nominees are Janet Jackson, the Cars, the Zombies, Yes, Chaka Khan, Chic, J. Geils Band, Joe Tex, Kraftwerk, and MC5. This is certainly an eclectic representation of 'rock' music including everything from classic and punk to grunge and disco to electronic and folk. In order to qualify, acts must have been making music for over 25 years, that means released their first single or album by 1991. This is Chic's record 11th nomination. It is the fifth for Joe Tex, the fourth for the J. Geils Bands and Kraftwerk, and the third nomination for Yes.

Ballots are sent to 800 members of the music industry to vote. The Rock Hall selects the top vote getters with at least 50% of the votes for inclusion, usually 5-7 each year. The public also gets a vote. Go to to cast your ballot or vote below. All of the public votes are tallied to create a ballot alongside the industry votes. Voting ends on December 6th. You can vote once per day. The inductees will be announced in December. The ceremony will be held in April 2017 at the Barclay's Center in Brooklyn, NY, and will be broadcast at a later date on HBO.
