2023 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Nominees

Fan voting is now open for the 2023 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction. You might notice that a lot of these artists don’t really fall under the Rock umbrella. The Rock Hall released a statement on Tuesday explaining why that is:

“Born from the collision of rhythm & blues, country and gospel, rock ‘n’ roll is a spirit that is inclusive and ever-changing. The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame celebrates the sound of youth culture and honours the artists whose music connects us all.”
