Others potential Hall of Famers on the ballot are LL Cool J, Kraftwek, Devo, Janet Jackson, Stevie Nicks, the Zombies, Rufus featuring Chaka Khan and Kraftwerk.

LL Cool J, Kraftwerk, and The Zombies have also been nominated multiple times before but were never inducted. She is nominated this time for her solo career.

This year's batch of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominees bring us a list of those up for induction into the hallowed institution of music history.

Within hours of the nominees being named on Tuesday, Nicks led the fan ballot with more than 38,000 votes, followed by Def Leppard with some 33,000, according to the Hall of Fame website.

Gaining their first nominations in 2019 are Akron's finest New Wave weirdos Devo, Sheffield rockers Def Leppard, and the hugely influential British band Roxy Music. Voting is capped at one ballot per day.

Despite its name, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has been accepting nominees from all genres, regardless of their connection to rock'n'roll. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 2019 Induction Ceremony will be held at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, on March 29, 2019.

"To be eligible for nomination, an individual artist or band must have released its first commercial recording at least 25 years prior to the year of nomination", a press release said.
