This marks The Cure’s second career nomination for the prestigious Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. They were previously nominated for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s Class of 2012. They have been eligible since the year 2004, and they have been described as “post-punk innovators and goth style mavens.”
