Artists become eligible for inclusion 25 years after the release of their first album, making any act who put out their debut in 1992 open for inclusion this year. This accounts for both Radiohead (Pablo Honey) and Rage Against The Machine's (Rage Against the Machine) place on the longlist. Other first-time nominees for 2018 include Kate Bush, Eurythmics, Judas Priest, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Dire Straits, and Moody Blues
