2017 Rock Hall nominees announced.

The 2017 Rock and Roll Hall nominees have been announced.

One the list: Peal Jam, Tupac, Electric Light Orchestra, Journey, The Cars, The Zombies, Yes, and Jane's Addiction. Other notables: Steppenwolf, Joan Baez, Janet Jackson, and Chic.

The top three will be announced in December. The induction ceremony will happen in April in New York City's Barclay's Center. Why it's not held at the actual Rock Hall - who knows.

However, this will be the fifth year fans can vote for one of the 2017 inductees.

Here my ballot (Vince, here).

#1: The Cars.

#2: Electric Light Orchestra.

#3: Peal Jam.
