Foo Fighters, Rage Against The Machine & Iron Maiden Are Nominated For The Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame

The 2021 nominations for the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame are in!

Foo Fighters and Iron Maiden have both been nominated for the very first time and Rage Against The Machine have been nominated for the third time.

They join Jay-Z, Mary J. Blige, Tina Turner, the Go-Go’s, Kate Bush, Devo, Chaka Khan, Carole King, Fela Kuti, LL Cool J, New York Dolls, Todd Rundgren and Dionne Warwick in the long list. 

To be eligible for consideration an artist has had to have released their first single or album before 1995, which Foo Fighters did in 1995. 

The inductees will be voted on by a pool of more than 1,000 artists, historians, journalists, and members of the music industry will select the new class.

Fans will also have a chance to take part in the process by voting at or at an interactive kiosk at the museum in Cleveland. The fan selections will count as a single “fan ballot” that will get added to the other votes.
