The 2017 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction nominee list is out and we love the selections. Tupac and Pearl Jam, both eligible this year for the first time, have been heralded as likely picks.
The influential disco-era band Chic, who have become the hard-luck losers of the rock hall induction process, are on the ballot for the 11th time. The nominees include Pearl Jam, Jane's Addiction, Tupac Shakur, Depeche Mode, Electric Light Orchestra, Janet Jackson, The Cars, Journey and Yes. The inductees will be announced in December and the ceremony will take place at Barclays Center in Brooklyn next April.
According to Rolling Stone, Hall of Fame bosses have also announced which members from each band will be inducted if they make the cut. N.W.A. got in alongside Chicago, Cheap Trick, Deep Purple, and Steve Withers. Pearl Jam and murdered rapper Shakur were named in their first year of eligibility.
Voting results will be determined by an worldwide voting body of over 800 artists, historians and members of the music industry, and there will also be a "fans' ballot", comprised of public votes, according to CNN.
Depeche Mode is nominated for the first time, though it's not the first year the pioneering British synthpop band has been eligible.
The public can cast votes online, from today at 10 a.m. through December 5 at rockhall.com. The top 5 artists, chosen by the public, will be used to create a "fans" ballot, which will be counted alongside the Rock Hall's votes to determine the 2017 inductees.
On Tuesday, Pearl Jam was revealed among the 2017 Rock Hall nominees, and that means naming the names of which members would be part of the enshrinement. Fans must log in with a Facebook account or email to vote and can cast one ballot per day. Considering Tupac's enduring legacy and fandom in the hip hop community, it seems likely that he'll be inducted this year.

Ballots went out last week, and Democrats have been increasing their advantage over Republicans as people cast their votes. This means that even if Trump were to win all the toss-ups on the map, he would still narrowly lose the election.
