The 2018 Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame Inductees Are:

The results are in and below please find the 2018 Inductees to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. I’ve followed the visual below with a reminder of the criteria and more. Take a look.

The Criteria: Currently, groups or individuals are qualified for induction 25 years after the release of their first record. Nominees should have demonstrable influence and significance within the history of rock and roll. Four categories are recognized: Performers, Non-Performers, Early Influences, and Sidemen (as of 2000). Fans never had any input but in 2012 they 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.
