The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Nominees

Red Hot Chili Peppers Left Off Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Nominees List

Yesterday, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame unveiled its 15 nominees. Suprisingly enough, the Red Hot Chili Peppers aren't on that list.

2009 was the first year the group were eligible, the rule being that bands can't be considered until 25 years after their first recording. They didn't get enough votes to make it into the Hall, but several forecasters assumed they'd wind up on the list again this year. Instead, they're nowhere to be found, although they shouldn't feel too bad since another rock group that didn't get voted in last year, Kiss, failed to make the cut this year either.

The list of nominees for 2011:

  • Alice Cooper
  • Beastie Boys
  • Bon Jovi
  • Chic
  • Neil Diamond
  • Donovan
  • Dr. John
  • J. Geils Band
  • LL Cool J
  • Darlene Love
  • Laura Nyro
  • Donna Summer
  • Joe Tex
  • Tom Waits
  • Chuck Willis
