2012 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Nominees Announced


The list of nominees to the 2012 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has been released this week.

• Beastie Boys
• Donovan
• Eric B. & Rakim
• Guns ‘N Roses
• Heart
• Joan Jett and The Blackhearts

• Laura Nyro
• Red Hot Chili Peppers

The nominees span decades of contribution to rock music and they represent different facets of rock and roll. While some of the names on the list are still very visible, all the artists nominated have released their first album or single at least 25 years ago.

Among the early favorites would be Joann Jett and the Blackhearts whose classic hit ‘I Love Rock and Roll’ has been a standard rock anthem for generations.

This could also be the right time for The Beastie Boys and Red Hot Chili Peppers who have been previously nominated but have not been inducted yet.

The formal inductees will be announced in April 2012 in Cleveland, Ohio.
