And Our Thoughts on the nominees and the state of the Hall.
Enshrinement in a professional Hall of Fame is one of the most prestigious of accolades, one that few ever achieve. Whether you threw more touchdowns, sold more records, or set the world weightlifting record, being placed into a Hall of Fame cements legacies and places one amongst their peers. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame will be announcing the new inductions on November 7th, 2021, and fan voting has already started.
Every year a new list of artists and bands is selected and from this list a select few are chosen to join the Hall. Here are the 2021 nominees:
Mary J. Blige
New York Dolls
LL Cool J
Vote for Your Favorites!
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has been a source of controversy for years, with many claiming that many of the nominees and inductees aren't even rock acts. There's a good deal of sense to this argument, no matter how many records LL Cool J or Jay-Z sold it's hard to say they're rock artists. Having said that, the Hall has included a fan voting section for several years, so go on the Hall's website and vote for your favorite 5. You can vote for up to 5 nominees every day, voting closes on April 30th. 2021.
