Today the nominees were announced for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame in Cleveland.  Once again this year fans will be able to vote on the five artist who they think should be in.  I already cast my vote, here is who I voted in.

Deep Purple, Cheap Trick, Steve Miller, Yes and Chicago.   In my opinion Deep Purple, Cheap Trick and Yes have deserved to be in since they have been eligible.  All three bands have made great music, influenced many and continue to make great music.

The other two artist,Steve Miller and Chicago are two that I could go either way on. I voted for both as they are artist who I feel should be in more than some of the other nominees.

Chicago is interesting because of their diverse sound over the years.  If they are going strictly for their first decade then yes the band deserve induction.  I actually saw them a few years ago in Battle Creek and they still put on a great live show.

Other artist who have been nominated this year are Janet Jackson, The Smiths, Nine Inch Nails, N.W.A, The Cars,Chic, Chaka Khan, The Spinners, The J.B's and Los Lobos.

Who are the five you would like to see get in?

You can vote until December 9th for the fan ballot.

The top 5 will be inducted into the hall coming up this spring in New York City.
