The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame announced the full list of nominees for induction in 2015 today and it included Green Day, N.W.A, Nine Inch Nails, Kraftwerk, Chic, The Smiths, Sting, and more.
Rock 'n' roll's most prestigious and — some would say, conservative — honor, the Hall of Fame has been reinventing itself in recent years, as we move further and further away from the genre's early golden age.
Kraftwerk would be a rare primarily electronic artist to join the exclusive club, while N.W.A. would follow just two other hip-hop groups to be inducted: Run DMC and The Beastie Boys.
