The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Foundation has announced its 2024 nominees. Two-thirds of the 15 nominees this year are up for election for the first time: Mariah Carey, Cher, Foreigner, Peter Frampton, Kool & The Gang, Lenny Kravitz, Oasis, Sinéad O’Connor, Ozzy Osbourne, and Sade. Returning to the ballot after previously having been nominated for the honor are Mary J. Blige, Dave Matthews Band, Eric B. and Rakim, Jane’s Addiction, and A Tribe Called Quest. Find the complete list of 2024 nominees below.
Nominees from last year’s ballot who are not featured again in 2023 include Cyndi Lauper, Iron Maiden, Joy Division/New Order, Soundgarden, Warren Zevon, and the White Stripes.
“This remarkable list of nominees reflects the diverse artists and music that the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame honors and celebrates,” John Sykes, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Foundation’s chairman, said in a statement. Continuing in the true spirit of Rock & Roll, these artists have created their own sounds that have impacted generations and influenced countless others that have followed in their footsteps.”
Musicians become eligible for nomination 25 years after their first release. Five to seven out of this year’s nominees will be inducted into the Rock Hall. The winners will be announced in late April, and the ceremony will be held in Cleveland this fall.
