The nominees for the 2016 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame are in, and for the fourth consecutive year, the public gets to vote alongside the artists, historians and music industry insiders of the Rock Hall voting body. From now until December 9th, fans can vote right here for the nominees they'd like to see inducted. The top five acts will comprise a "fan's ballot" that will count as one of the ballots that determine the Class of 2015.
As Rolling Stone first reported, nominees for the Hall's next class include Nine Inch Nails, N.W.A, the Smiths, Deep Purple, Janet Jackson, Chic, Steve Miller, Chicago, Chaka Khan, the Spinners, Cheap Trick, the Cars, the J.B.'s, Los Lobos and Yes.
In order to be eligible for this year’s ballot, artists or bands need to have released their first single or album in 1990 or earlier.
