CLEVELAND – The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has announced its list of 16 performers nominated for entry into Rock Hall in 2021.
Nominees were selected by an international group of more than 1,000 artists, historians and other members of the music industry, WEWS reported.
Take a look at those nominated:
- Foo Fighters

Cleveland.com said this year’s list of nominees is the most female-heavy list of any year with seven of the 16 being women. It is also the most racially diverse in 15 years.
Acts have to wait at least 25 years after their first official recording was released. Jay-Z and the Foo Fighters are eligible for the first time this year.
A few of those nominated are already in the Hall of Fame. Grohl from the Foo Fighters was inducted with Nirvana in 2014. King was inducted in 1990 as a songwriter, and Turner was inducted in 1991 as part of Ike & Tina Turner.
The ceremony will be held later this year, but details of when and where have not been announced, Cleveland.com reported.
More than 900 people have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame over 34 years, WEWS reported.
