Excerpt:

Others to make the nominated class for the 2016 Rock Hall are The Cars, Chicago, Deep Purple, Cheap Trick, the J.B.’s, Chaka Khan, Los Lobos, Steve Miller, The Spinners and Yes.

...The public has until Dec. 9 to cast votes on the final inductees. The top five acts will comprise a "fans' ballot" that will make an impression along with those of the 800 artists, historians and music industry professionals who make up the Rock Hall voting body.



Also, from Detritus:

ok i have to be honest, i want the smiths to get into the RRHOF only for the drama that would ensue

Yeah that would be the only interesting part of it. Something like when Billy Corgan slagged off the RnRHOF when they inducted Pink Floyd. It was funny.

The Smiths did not make the cut and will not join Deep Purple, Cheap Trick, and NWA at this years ceremony. Really they should just put Morrissey in it. Ice Cube could have written a new verse to Ganglord for the end of the night jam.
