Rock and Roll Hall of Fame announces 2016

6 years 1 month ago #1070 by Praneeth Media
Let us pay homage to the latest rock stars immortal and dig on some of the music that just got them into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

The pantheon of rock has announced its five inductees for 2016. The ceremony to welcome them will come in April.

It took decades for the acts to make it in, and that's part of the official rules.

An act has to be in business for at least 25 years after the release of its first album to be nominated. Three of the five iconic acts needed more than 40 years to make it in.

Every year, more than 600 musicians, historians and other industry players vote on nominees. For five years, the Rock Hall has allowed fans to vote, too. But their top pick counts as a single vote.

This year, the band Chicago took 37 million ballots -- more than 23% -- to become fan favorite.

Here are the new rock deities in the order listed by the Hall of Fame. With so much time under their belts, their hits are now oldies spanning '60s hard rock to '90s rap but heavily weighted to the '70s.

Notably, none of the nominees is female.

Remember (if you can). Sing along (even if you can't).

Agreed. Very notable that there were no female inductees this year.
