It’s getting to be that time of year again when the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame announce the voting ballot for their next induction class, and it looks like they’re looking to fans for their input.
The Rock Hall’s Twitter sent out the following thread this afternoon citing the t-shirt bassist Jeff Ament wore during Pearl Jam’s 2017 induction that listed a litany of artists that haven’t been overlooked by the organization. It then instructed followers to use the hashtag #RockHall2019 to recognize acts they think should be considered for the ballot this year.
In 2017, @pearljam bassist Jeff Ament made his list of hopeful future nominees clear from the induction ceremony stage...
But that could change soon....#RockHall2019 is coming. Who do you want to see get inducted? https://t.co/9jywnsr5wZ
Fortunately, some of the artists on Ament’s shirt, like Bon Jovi and Nina Simone were inducted the following year, but there are still plenty more to choose both on and off Ament’s shirt.
So, what are you waiting for?! Head to Twitter and let the Rock Hall know who should be on the 2019 ballot with the hashtag #RockHall2019.
