Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Names Nominees

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland have announced the nominees for induction into the hall. Among the nine nominees are six first timers and three returning acts that did not receive enough votes in earlier years.

The new nominees:
  • Madonna
  • Beastie Boys
  • Leonard Cohen
  • Donna Summer
  • Ventures
  • Afrika Bambaataa (Kevin Donovan)
Returning nominees:
  • Chic
  • Dave Clark Five
  • John Mellencamp
The Dave Clark Five were part of a controversy last year when Fox News reported that they had actually received enough votes to be inducted but were passed over by Hall of Fame Chairman Jann Wenner for Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five.

The top five vote getters will be inducted next year on March 10.
