Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 2011 Nominees Announced

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame just announced the list of its 2011 nominees. There are some names that are being considered for the very first time – including Donovan, Alice Cooper, Bon Jovi and Dr. John – as well as a few others that have appeared on previous lists but stopped shy of being inducted – such as the Beastie Boys, LL Cool J, Donna Summer, Chic and Darlene Love. The whole list, just below:


Alice Cooper

The Beastie Boys

Bon Jovi


Neil Diamond


Dr. John

The J. Geils Band

LL Cool J

Darlene Love

Laura Nyro

Donna Summer

Joe Tex

Tom Waits

Chuck Willis


This is really kind of a pre-pre-list; a whittled down list of final nominees will be announced in December. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s 26th Annual Induction Ceremony happens on March 14, 2011, at the Waldorf-Astoria hotel in New York City. And once again, apparently, KISS and Chubby Checker are not invited. [MTV]

Really, I think we can all agree that it's about time Bon Jovi was formally recognized for their contribution to pop music at large.

Agreed, even if I can't stand them.

Go Beasties!

The real story is that KISS is snubbed again this year. BOOOOOO!

And to a lesser extent, Chubby Checker.

I thought KISS just made dr. pepper commercials.
