TODD, DEVO, PRINE ON
ROCK HALL BALLOT

Todd Rundgren, John Prine and Devo are on the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ballot for the first time. Joining those neglected greats are three other worthy first-timers—Roxy Music, Stevie Nicks and Def Leppard—as well as more recent acts Radiohead, The Cure and Rage Against the Machine who have been through this process before.

None of the acts nominated are in their first year of eligibility. To be eligible, an individual artist or band must have released its first commercial recording at least 25 years prior.

Among the returning nominees are: Janet Jackson, Kraftwerk, LL Cool J, MC5, Rufus & Chaka Khan and The Zombies.

Ballots will be sent to a voting body of more than 1,000 artists, historians and members of the music industry. Fans can vote beginning today and up until 12/9 here.

The induction ceremony will be held 3/29 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

Did we mention that Todd Rundgren is finally on the ballot? Is everyone wearing their Energy Dome?
