The diverse list of 12 nominees is rounded out by ABBA, Darlene Love, Donna Summer, Jimmy Cliff, Laura Nyro, LL Cool J, The Chantels, The Hollies and The Stooges.

A voting process by 500 members of The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation will determine the five acts who will be inducted into the Rock Hall during the 25th Annual Induction Ceremony, set to take place March 15 at New York City’s Waldorf Astoria. To be eligible for induction into the Rock Hall, acts must have released their first single at least 25 years prior to the year of nomination.
