The nominations for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum for 2010 were announced today. The 12 nominees are: ABBA, Darlene Love, Donna Summer, Genesis, Jimmy Cliff, KISS, Laura Nyro, LL Cool J, Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Chantels, The Hollies, and The Stooges. Ballots will be sent to more than 500 voters, who will select five of the 12 nominees to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame at the 25th Annual Induction Ceremony March 15, 2010, at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City.
From rockabilly, rap and R&B to punk, disco and metal, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s 2009 nominees represent a broad spectrum. So, who’s nominated?
