Nominations For Rock Hall Inductees Announced Today

It’s about time the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame has their induction ceremony in good ol’ Cleveland, Ohio.  Seriously, why is it always in NYC when the museum is in Cleveland?  It’s about time the rock n’ roll capitol holds one of the most important event of the year!

This year there are a few bands I have enjoyed throughout my life that are being nominated as possible inductees including Metallica, The Stooges, and Run-DMC.  Tickets will be made available to the public for the first time ever and you can bet your sweet you-know-what I am going to try and be there.

From the Rock Hall website:

The nominations for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum have been announced!

The 2009 Induction nominees are:

Rock + Cleveland
Rock + Cleveland

Jeff Beck
Wanda Jackson
Little Anthony and the Imperials
the Stooges
Bobby Womack

Five of these nine nominees will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.  The inductees will be announced in January 2009.  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 24th Annual Induction Ceremony on April 4 at historic Public Hall in Cleveland.  For the first time, tickets to the ceremony will be made available to the public. Advance ticket sales for the events will be made available to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum members and then to the public.

  1. I think this list of nominees is pretty solid, I can’t wait to see who they actually induct! This is the Stooges’ year, I can feel it! Has anyone ever been to the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame? I work on behalf of Positively Cleveland, and we’re getting the word out about the Rock Hall. I highly encourage all music fans to check it out. You can start on our website: Also go to to enter to win passes to the Rock Hall AND a private tour from the curator!

    Hope I haven’t overstepped my bounds by leaving this comment; just working to let people know about what Cleveland has to offer! If you have any questions or concerns feel free to Email me 🙂
