Let’s just get straight to it. This is the story that makes rock and roll fans heads spin every year. Last night The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame made it’s official announcement of 2022’s List Of Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Nominees. These include Pat BenatarBush, Devo, Beck, Duran Duran, Eminem, Judas Priest, The New York Dolls, Dolly Parton, MC5, Fela Kuti, Rage Against The Machine, Lionel Richie, A Tribe Called Quest, Dionne Warwick, and Carly Simon.

Before you start screaming to the high rock and roll heavens, let’s take a look at these artists. First and foremost is Pat Benatar who should have been put in a long time ago. This is her second year of eligibility. When she did not make it past the nomination last year fans went nuts. She should make it this year or there will be a tremendous outcry from fans once again. Additionally Judas Priest, The New York Dolls, Rage Against The Machine, Bush,  Eurythmics, Kate Bush, Devo, Fela Kuti and Dionne Warwick have been nominated in past years but never made the final cut. We would argue that out of that list of bands besides Pat Benatar, Judas Priest, The New York Dolls, Kate Bush and Rage Against The Machine should make the cut. However odds are they all won’t because of the new nominees this year.

First time nominees this year include Duran Duran, Beck, Eminem, Carly Simon, Lionel Richie, A Tribe Called Quest, Dolly Parton and Carly Simon. Out of this new group the one lock will most definitely be Eminem. Most rock fans would argue that Eminem is rap, not rock and roll and should not be put into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. It’s a pretty valid argument from that perspective. However as we have seen in the past, the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame bases it’s criteria on how much artists have contributed to pop culture and mass culture in general. The next pick who may be put in as a first time nominee will probably be Dolly Parton based on her longevity and popularity. Once again, not rock and roll but the Hall doesn’t seem to care about that.

The Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame does not put many artists in each year. It’s usually between five and seven. So out of the seventeen nominations this years, ten to twelve of them will probably not make the cut. Below are our seven artists we think the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame will induct this year. These picks are based on who we think the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame will choose.

Probable Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame Inductees

  1. Pat Benatar
  2. Judas Priest
  3. Eminem
  4. The New York Dolls
  5. Dolly Parton
  6. Lionel Richie

These are not our picks above, it’s simply the artists we believe the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame will induct based on their past choices. If we got to choose which ones out of the seventeen nominees, these below would be our picks

  1. Pat Benatar
  2. Judas Priest
  3. Kate Bush
  4. Rage Against The Machine
  5. The New York Dolls

Once again, there are still so many legendary rock and roll artists who were failed to even be nominated. At the top of our lists stands Jethro Tull, Iron Maiden, Emerson Lake & Palmer, Foghat, The Marshall Tucker Band, The Outlaws, Warren Zevon, Harry Nilsson, Sammy Hagar,  Joe Cocker, and so many others……

We will find out the inductees when the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame announces its picke on May 22, 2022.
