Stumbled on the mention of Dire Straits FINALLY being nominated..

I didn't realise that the public can actually vote... or is this a new thing now?

Do these votes actually count towards who is inducted, or is it more an 'influence' towards the people in power?

Edit.. Just read this: The top five artists from the fan vote will comprise a "fans' ballot", which will be counted along with the other ballots to determine the 2018 inductees.


A vote for Dire Straits and Depeche Mode from me. Might vote every day if I remember to.

Interesting.

For my own personal taste, I'd like to see Depeche Mode and Radiohead get in.  Of those two, though, Radiohead are more the shoo-in. I expect they'll get in this year.  DM seem to be in the same category as Rush--a deserving band that's snubbed by Jann Wenner.

I'll guess these will get in.  Not sure on the rest:

Link Wray
Radiohead
MC5
Judas Priest
LL Cool J
The Meters

well those results are a bit depressing.  when bon jovi is runninvg away with it, it's obviously a popularity contest.  imo anyway, i know there are probably more than just a few fans on here.

Sister Rosetta Tharpe needs to get in.  She was a trailblazer.  And the Eurythmics.  Annie Lennox is a legend.

I am not a Bon Jovi fan, but shouldn't popularity count a little bit?  Good luck seeing obscure bands who never achieved much mainstream success making the Hall any time soon.  If you are a rock band that had any kind of popularity for any sustained period, you are probably getting in at some point.
