The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum has announced its 16 nominees that are up for the coveted induction that will take place on April 10, 2014 in New York.
Alternative rock band Nirvana has garnered a nomination and this marked their first year of eligibility. (An artist or group has to wait 25 years since the release of their debut studio album to be considered for induction). Nirvana, which was fronted by the late Kurt Cobain, is best-known for such rock classics as "Lithium" and "Smells Like Teen Spirit."
Rock songstress Linda Ronstadt, as well as Peter Gabriel, Hall & Oates and Yes are all first-time nominees for this prestigious honor. Ronstadt is the sole female nominee this year.
Other nominees include the late Link Wray, The Replacements, Cat Stevens, The Zombies, The Paul Butterfield Blues Band and hard rockers Kiss.
Chic, Deep Purple and The Meters return again on the ballot from last year's line-up. Hip-hop artists LL Cool J and N.W.A. are also in the running.
This year's honorees will be determined by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's voting members which consists of approximately 600 artists, historians and professionals in the music industry. The artists who generate the highest number of votes will be officially inducted on April 10. The ceremony is expected to be broadcast on HBO in the spring of next year.
