This year's nominations for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame are in! Kate Bush, Missy Elliott, The White Stripes, Cyndi Lauper, Rage Against the Machine, and Sheryl Crow have been nominated for induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame as part of the class of 2023.
George Michael, Soundgarden, Warren Zevon, A Tribe Called Quest, Willie Nelson, Iron Maiden, and the Philadelphia R&B outfit the Spinners are also up for potential induction later this year. In addition, Joy Division and New Order are packaged together for first-time Rock Hall consideration.
This is the fourth time Kate Bush has been nominated for Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction. She received nods in 2018, 2021, and 2022. While Bush has not released new music since 2018, she became newly popular last year thanks to the placement of “Running Up That Hill (A Deal with God)” in the fourth season of Stranger Things.
Rage Against the Machine are being nominated for their fifth time after being included for potential induction in 2018, 2019, 2021, and 2022. Meanwhile, the Spinners are looking at their fourth nomination, having gotten nominations in 2012, 2015, and 2016.
Soundgarden, A Tribe Called Quest, and Iron Maiden have all received their second nod this year. The rest of the artists in the list are first-time nominees, with Missy Elliott and the White Stripes being nominated in their first year of eligibility.
In a statement about the 2023 nominees, Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Foundation’s chairman, John Sykes, said, “This remarkable list of nominees reflects the diverse artists and music that the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame honors and celebrates. These artists have created their own sounds that have impacted generations and influenced countless others that have followed in their footsteps.”
The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame’s class of 2023 will be announced in May, with the Induction Ceremony set for the fall.
