The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame has announced its 2023 class of nominees. Missy Elliott and A Tribe Called Quest are the hip-hop acts on this year’s shortlist, with Kate Bush, George Michael, and Cyndi Lauper representing the pop world, Sheryl Crow and Willie Nelson carrying the torch for country, and The Spinners the only soul group in the mix. The rest of this year’s nominees come from across the rock spectrum, from metal pioneers Iron Maiden to grunge progenitors Soundgarden, punk poets Rage Against the Machine to folk philosopher Warren Zevon, and from scrappy garage rock icons the White Stripes to new wave giants Joy Division, nominated jointly with New Order (the equally influential group founded by three former Joy Division members after the passing of JD frontman Ian Curtis).
