N.W.A, Janet Jackson among nominees for 2016 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame hosts some of the greatest name in rock and roll history. From Metallica to KISS, many groups have been forever enshrined in greatness.

However, there are some celebrities that are worthy of being honored, but don’t necessarily fit the bill of a rock and roll group. Madonna and Run D.M.C. are just a few names that fall under that category.

On Thursday, this year’s Hall of Fame class nominees were announced and it was headlined by two acts that not a lot of rock and roll fans are headbanging to. According to Complex, N.W.A and Janet Jackson are among the nominees for this year’s class.

Nine Inch Nails, Cheap Trick, Chicago, Yes, Deep Purple, and The Smiths all join the the two acts as traditional rock and roll acts. For N.W.A., this is the perfect end to their amazing comeback year after their highly successful biopic “Straight Outta Compton”, while Janet Jackson released her new album “Unbreakable” recently.

Voters will now vote on the class this year and the inductees will be announced in December. The ceremony will take place in April 2016.
