Others potential Hall of Famers on the ballot are LL Cool J, Kraftwek, Devo, Janet Jackson, Stevie Nicks, the Zombies, Rufus featuring Chaka Khan and Kraftwerk.

If LL Cool J is voted into the Hall, he will join fellow rap legends Run-D.M.C., Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, Beastie Boys, Public Enemy, N.W.A., and Tupac Shakur.

Def Leppard, Rage Against the Machine and the MC5 are among the hard rock and alternative rock bands nominated for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame next year. This is Smith's fifth time being nominated.

The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is getting ready to induct another band/artist for 2019. Voting is capped at one ballot per day.

Fans can also visit the museum in Cleveland to cast their vote in person using the Voice Your Choice interactives adjacent to the 2018 Inductee exhibit. They will be announced in December and inducted into the Hall of Fame at a ceremony in March in NY.

To be eligible, an individual artist or band must have released its first commercial recording at least 25 years prior to the year of nomination.

The nods are a first for Def Leppard, Devo, Prine, Roxy Music, and Rundgren, as well as the first as a solo artist for Nicks, a member of Fleetwood Mac who was previously inducted with the rest of the group in 1998.
