Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 2017 Announces Nominees
Whilst the event and its nominees is thrust into the public forum for debate, it is questioned whether the fans votes contribute to the overall outcome. The official site of the event states that
"Ballots are sent to more than 600 historians, members of the music industry and artists-including every living Rock Hall inductee- and the five performers receiving the most votes become that year's induction class. Beginning in 2012, fans were given the chance to vote for the nominees they'd like to see inducted into the Rock Hall. The Top five vote-getters in the public poll form one ballot, which is weighted the same as the rest of the submitted ballots."
Whilst fan voting is open, it is contested as to whether this will have much of an impact upon the outcome of the poll as it only counts for 1/600 votes for the entire event.

- Depeche Mode
- Electric Light Orchestra
- J. Geils Band
- Jane's Addiction
- Janet Jackson
