Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame: the new artists

The Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame is a museum located in Cleveland, Ohio that celebrates the biggest idols of the genre. It has already become an institution in the world of music, so many artists want to enter. Although the entrance to this Hall does not mean any practical change for the musicians, it does give them a place in the history of music and recognizes their contributions to the genre.

That is why to enter this famed museum, artists must have contributed or influenced in some way to others in the genre of rock and in the music industry in general. These are the musicians that will enter in 2019 at the ceremony that will take place on March 29 of next year.

The Cure

That's right, even if you don't believe it, this British band was not in the Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame until now. They were formed in 1976, but reached their greatest fame in the early 90s. It is a reference group of alternative rock as it has crossed genres throughout its long career: they have gone through post-punk, gothic rock and new wave British. This was the second nomination of the band, which will finally be in this renowned hall.

Def Leppard

Like The Cure, they are a British band formed at the end of the 70s. Unlike the first ones, Def Leppard reached its peak a little earlier, during the 80s, and they did it through a heavier rhythm and close to the hard rock and metal. This was the first nomination of the group and they achieved it immediately.

Roxy Music

The British band, already dissolved, got IGNORE INTO the Hall of Fame also in its first nomination. This band is in 98th place in the list of the 100 best artists of all time of the Rolling Stone magazine.

It is perhaps the most current band of this list. Radiohead, also a British band, was formed in 1985 and reached its peak during the 90s and even today is still adored by many young people around the world. Now, they have transcended the genre of rock and have influenced other genres such as pop and electronic music. This was its second nomination to enter the Hall of Fame.

According to Noisey, the number specialized in music of Vice magazine, explained that a year ago when they had also been nominated, Ed O'Brien, guitarist of the band, said that he was honored to have been nominated but he did not understand very well the cultural meaning of belonging to this room.

Janet Jackson

The youngest of the Jackson brothers and sister of the king of pop, Michael Jackson. In addition to music, she also acts and dances. She began her career as a girl and, while her brothers already played like the Jackson 5, she performed on The Jacksons. According to Billboard magazine, Janet Jackson is the fifth most influential R & B artist of recent years. The artist achieved this recognition in her third nomination.

Stevie Nicks

Another woman soloist in this hall of fame. Stevie Nicks already belonged to the Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame as a member of the dissolved Fleetwood Mac, but had never been nominated as a soloist. She enters to the list on her first nomination.

Nicks has become the first woman to receive this recognition twice, since she is the only artist with a solid solo career after having achieved success with a band.

The Zombies

This is the band that has pursued this recognition the most. They finally manage to enter the rock 'n roll hall of fame in their fourth nomination. This British sixties band never hit so much in the UK, where other English bands of punk and rock did, but they do had a great impact in North America, so they open up a place in this museum.
