Nominees become eligible for induction 25 years following the release of their first recording, and over 300 artists across multiple genres have been recognized by the institution since its establishment in 1983.

Fans will once again have the opportunity to vote for their favorites.

Now the shortlisted artists have been chosen, ballots are sent to more than 1,000 historians, members of the music industry and artists - including every living Rock Hall inductee - and the five performers receiving the most votes will become the class of 2019.

The Rock Hall revealed the complete list of 2019 nominees - 15 acts in all - on Tuesday morning (Oct. 9). For some, the pinnacle of the list contains musings such as one day winning a Grammy award.
