The list of nominees for the 2019 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame has been confirmed, with Janet Jackson named among the potential inductees. Jackson is joined on the list by Radiohead, Rage Against the Machine, The Cure, Kraftwerk, MC5, Rufus & Chaka Khan, LL Cool J, and the Zombies. The longlist also includes first time nominees Devo, Roxy Music, Stevie Nicks, Todd Rundgren, John Prine, and Def Leppard.
There are no artists eligible for inclusion at the first time of availability on the longlist. To qualify for inclusion you need to have released an album at least 25 years ago, meaning 1994 for this year's crop. OutKast, The Fugees, The Roots, and Snoop Dogg all released albums that year but failed to be considered for the 2019 Rock Halll.
Nina Simone, Dire Straits, Bon Jovi, the Cars, the Moody Blues, and Sister Rosetta Tharpe were all inducted into 2018 class of Rock & Roll Hall of Fame last year.
Voting for all nominees is now open via the Rock Hall’s website. The 2019 inductees will be announced in December.
