See below. Do you think Roxy will ever be nominated, and if so, what are the chances of being voted in?

The nominees for induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2018 were announced Thursday.
This year's group includes 19 nominees from all different musical genres.

They are:

Bon Jovi
Kate Bush
The Cars
Depeche Mode
Dire Straits
Eurythmics
J. Geils Band
Judas Priest
LL Cool J
MC5
The Meters
Moody Blues
Radiohead
Rage Against the Machine
Rufus featuring Chaka Khan
Nina Simone
Sister Rosetta Tharpe
Link Wray
The Zombies

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 induction which means the 2018 nominees had to release their first official recording no later than 1992.

Nine of the Class of 2018 nominees are first-timers to the list.
They are Nina Simone, the Eurythmics, Dire Straits, Judas Priest, Kate Bush, Moody Blues, Radiohead, Rage Against the Machine and Sister Rosetta Tharpe.

An international voting body of more than 900 artists, historians and members of the music industry will receive ballots and this year fans will once again have the opportunity to participate.

Beginning October 5 and continuing through 11:59 p.m. EST on December 5, 2017, fans can visit rockhall.com/vote to cast votes for who they believe to be most deserving of induction.

The top five artists selected will comprise a "fans' ballot" that will be tallied along with the other ballots to choose the 2018 inductees.

Fans will need to log in with a Facebook account or email to vote and voting is capped at one ballot per day.

Hall of Fame stuff gets my goat, total waste of time. And if Nina Simone wasn't in already, after all this time, who the hell cares about this list?

Sorry, but this self-serving muso media crap winds me up.

No slights against any of the nominees, but yeah, Roxy Music, Kraftwerk, and to a lesser extent The Residents, Devo, Pere Ubu, WIRE are glaring omissions year after year.

Perhaps considered too weird, an honor in itself.

In the words of Rhett Butler..........Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn.

They don't deserve to have the uniqueness of Roxy Music grace their walls or trophy cabinet. :evil:

Big Time Mainstream Rock Critics in the US never liked Roxy or BF and in the States there are no Roxy/BF tracks that get played on Classic Rock Radio Stations. AAA stations like WXPN or WRSI ("The River") in Northampton Mass will play some Roxy/BF on occasion but usually it's MTT, Avalon, or LITD. But in terms of the RRHOF Roxy/BF are fringe "art rock" and easily ignored. Sigh...

The only name on the nominee list that surprises me as not already being in the RRHOF is Dire Straits. Mark K and his mates had some mega songs and albums (Sultans of Swing and Money for Nothing were HUGE hits) and DS perfectly fits the template for RRHOF membership.
