The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s 2022 nominees include Beck, A Tribe Called Quest, Kate Bush and more
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has announced this year’s nominees — 17 artists who are eligible for induction to the Cleveland music museum’s Class of 2022. They range from golden-age hip-hop icons A Tribe Called Quest to quirky alternative impersario Beck to theatrical singer-songwriter Kate Bush and revolutionary rockers Rage Against The Machine.
The nominees also include 80s rocker Pat Benatar, new wave faves Devo and Duran Duran, rapper Eminem (who got a nom in his first year of eligibility), electronic pop two-piece Eurythmics, metal vets Judas Priest, Afrobeat legend Fela Kuti, Detroit proto-punk band MC5, the glam-tinged New York Dolls, country royalty Dolly Parton, pop singer-songwriters Lionel Richie and Carly Simon, and acclaimed vocalist Dionne Warwick.
Fans can join the voting process at the Rock Hall website; the Class of 2022 will be announced in May, with an induction ceremony to follow in the fall.
