You’ve been waiting with baited breath on the decision of the voting party for the next round of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees and now my friends the votes have been tallied and here they are. Behold your “Class of 2019”: The Cure, Janet Jackson, Def Leppard, Stevie Nicks, Radiohead, Roxy Music and The Zombies.

2019 rock and roll hall of fame inductees

PiercingMetal Thoughts: There aren’t a whole lot of surprises to me with the inductees as I was pretty much expecting groups like Def Leppard and The Cure and Radiohead to win out. Nice to see Stevie Nicks getting the honor outside of her work with Fleetwood Mac for sure and since I never followed Roxy Music I’ll have to defer to the experts on their offerings. Though I feel Janet is a world of talent, she doesn’t do much with “Rock” so I’m surprised the committee opted for her as opposed to the likes of Devo or Todd Rundgren. I’d say “maybe next year” to those groups but after seeing what happened with Judas Priest and their one and done nomination, I don’t have a whole lot of faith in the process. Of course, I never really did. Should you wish to remind yourself of the nominees that this new class was pooled from just click HERE to see our summary from some months ago. Please chime in down below with what you think about these inductees and who’d you like to see receive the honor next year but be realistic. Remember we aren’t going to see Slayer and Motorhead on this list any time soon no matter how important they are to our Legions.

The results are in and below please find the 2018 Inductees to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. I’ve followed the visual below with a reminder of the criteria and more. Take a look.

The Criteria: Currently, groups or individuals are qualified for induction 25 years after the release of their first record. Nominees should have demonstrable influence and significance within the history of rock and roll. Four categories are recognized: Performers, Non-Performers, Early Influences, and Sidemen (as of 2000). Fans never had any input but in 2012 they were given the chance to vote for the nominees they’d like to see inducted into the Rock Hall. The top five vote-getters in the public poll form one ballot, which is weighted the same as the rest of the submitted ballots.

Well the votes have been submitted and I am not speaking about the whole Electoral College ones and instead am here to reveal the 2017 inductees to the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame. Check them out below along with some quick notations.

The Class of 2017 Is:

Electric Light Orchestra: ELO has long been one of my favorite artists based on just how many songs I knew by them and could sing word for word thanks to the traditional Rock radio of the past. Congrats to Jeff and the rest of the group. Looking forward to seeing their performance on the broadcast.

Journey: I think I’ve been listening to Journey almost as long as I’ve been listening to KISS and that my friends is a very, very, very long time. Super stoked to see them inducted and while the jury is still out on whether or not Steve Perry will perform with them on the stage I hope we get Greg Rolie up there as well since he was a vital part of their earliest success.
