Who would get your vote. You can pick five.

The official voters make selections today and they will be announced Wednesday Dec.7.

New York (September 27, 2011) — The nominations for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2012 were announced today. The nominees are:
· Beastie Boys
· The Cure
· Donovan
· Eric B. & Rakim
· Guns 'N Roses
· Heart
· Joan Jett and The Blackhearts
· Freddie King
· Laura Nyro
· Red Hot Chili Peppers
· Rufus with Chaka Khan
· The Small Faces/The Faces
· The Spinners
· Donna Summer

“The 2012 Nominees embody the broad scope of what ‘rock and roll’ means,” said Joel Peresman, President and CEO of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation. “From vocal groups to hip hop, from singer-songwriters to hard rocking artists, this group represents the spirit of what we celebrate at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.”

Ballots will be sent to more than 500 voters, who will select artists to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame at the 27th Annual Induction Ceremony. To be eligible for nomination, an individual artist or band must have released its first single or album at least 25 years prior to the year of nomination. The 2012 Nominees had to release their first recording no later than 1986.

the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame has become a joke...... the Black-Eyed Peas - seriously?

theres a ton of bands that should be inducted - like The Moody Blues - before the Chilli Peppers and a ton of other newer bands that are already inducted

You have a point. I would add Yes; Emerson Lake and Palmer, and Rush to that list.

Here is the RRHOF very own eligible list, if you want to get angry. Eno and Lou Reed not in the HOF WTF.

They'll vote Guns and Roses in to try to prove how credible the Hall of Fame is. what about Alice Cooper, Rush, Deep Purple and KISS? I lost respect for em when they started adding rap music to the list.
Don't get me wrong on Guns and Roses, they should be in it, they were rock and roll, down and dirty - sex, drugs and rock and roll, baby, but should they be inducted before all these other bands? I don't know, I'm not sure why the exclude all the bands listed above.

Totally agree. It's all record label politics. What about Yes, ELP and Rush? And why has King Crimson never been nominated?

The first mistake they made was putting it in Cleveland and not Philly.

As for the official list... I'm a fan of these guys most, in this order:

· Guns 'N Roses
- Beastie Boys
· Red Hot Chili Peppers
· Donovan
· The Small Faces/The Faces
· War
Some folks trust to reason
Others trust to might
I don't trust to nothing
But I know it come out right

It is a joke. Why aren't the Moody Blues in it?
I can't come down, it's plain to see.
I can't come down, I've been set free.
Who you are, and what you do,
don't make no difference to me.
