Just like how you decide the winners of American Idol, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame‘s class of 2013 will be chosen by you! The fate of these music legends will be in your hands, so we have some history to inform you just how much your vote counts.
To be eligible for Hall of Fame nomination, these artists must have released their music at least twenty-five years before their nomination year. That means for all of you in love with the 80′s, here’s your chance to vote for some oldies but goodies. New to the ballot this year are “seminal hip-hop acts N.W.A. and Public Enemy.” Those on the ballot had their hits prior to 1987, including Blues guitarist Albert King who has been eligible since ’87. For those of you who have been anxiously waiting the new nominees, Rush, Deep Purple, The Marvelettes, and Procol Harum have been added as first-timers!
Starting today and going on until December 5, you can vote at Rockhall.com to get your favorite rockers into the top 5 who will become part of the special “fan’s ballot.” This will be counted alongside the 600 artists, historians, and industry members’ who make up the international voting body. Come December, you watch the 28th Annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony aired on HBO to see if your rock love made it into rock history.
Who’s your rock favorite?
