    Getting Belinda Carlisle, Charlotte Caffey, Jane Wiedlin, Kathy Valentine and Gina Schock into The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame is paramount to me of the most importance. Hopefully in upcoming years I can also campaign as hard for Susanna Hoffs, Vicki & Debbi Peterson and Michael Steele.

    The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame will officially announce its 2021 induction class on Wednesday, May 12th.

    Future Rock Legends predicts the inductees will be:

    Jay-Z: Transcendent hip-hop stars have been able to break through with the voting committee in recent years, with Notorious B.I.G. and 2Pac getting inducted in the first eligible years. Jay-Z should follow suit and set the stage for next year when Eminem becomes eligible.

    Tina Turner: There's an opportunity for three people to join the multiple inductees club, and few are more deserving than the Queen of Rock & Roll. Turner is the first choice in the fan vote, and she should easily walk in now that she has finally been nominated for her post-Ike career.

    Carole King: It's not hyperbole to say that Carole King is one of America's most decorated artists. From Grammy Lifetime Achievement awards to Kennedy Center Honors, King is universally acclaimed. She will now add the honor of being a two-time Rock Hall inductee.

    Foo Fighters: Speaking of American institutions, Dave Grohl has established himself as the 21st century torch bearer for rock and roll. He likely has half the Rock Hall voters in his phone contacts, so he shouldn't have any difficulty finding support for his band's induction. Grohl would join John Lennon as the only artists to be inducted twice in their first eligible years.

    The Go-Go's: For years, the Go-Go's have been vocal about their exclusion from the Rock Hall, arguing their exclusion was due to politics and sexism. After their nomination, they've quickly changed their tune and have embraced the honor and heavily promoted the fan vote. They are "all-in" on this year's nomination, so it seems clear they will get inducted on their first nomination after ridiculously having to wait 15 years just to get an opportunity.

    New York Dolls: On the Who Cares About the Rock Hall? podcast, Joe Kwaczala mentioned that he heard from his sources on the Nominating Committee that the New York Dolls had more support than any other artist this year. After getting nominated in 2001 and then forgotten for the next 20 years, it took the death of Sylvain Sylvain to get the NomCom's attention again. Voters may not want to miss their chance to induct them this time.

    Additional Notes:

    Last year's live induction broadcast never came to be, but the Rock Hall planned for just six performer inductees with that in mind, and three were posthumous inductions. Smaller induction classes might be the norm moving forward as television time constraints wag the dog. Over the last couple of decades, the Rock Hall has averaged about 5.5 performer inductees per year.

    The Rock Hall has a pattern of inducting an "Early Influence" artist every three years, with the last being Sister Rosetta Tharpe in 2018. Look for one more to be selected this year.

    With regards to the special categories, the Rock Hall has gradually lost interest in them, averaging over four per year in the early days, to now below two. There are still dozens of worthy candidates that fall into these categories, but the Rock Hall refuses to make it a priority.

    Fela Kuti's strong showing of second place in the Rock Hall's fan vote was a surprise given his limited name recognition in the U.S., but social media promotion from influential Nigerian accounts gave him a massive boost. If they had promoted the fan vote a few more days in the last few weeks, they very likely could have gotten first place.

    Devo's nomination was embraced by the city of Akron and the Goodyear corporation, with both staging promotions for the band.

    There hasn't been an all-FYN (inducted in the first year nominated) class since 2009. FYNs typically make up roughly 60% of inductees.

    If Grohl, King and Turner get inducted, they will join the exclusive list of Multiple Inductees.

    For fourteen years we have been conducting an unofficial poll on this site which requires voters to select five artists on their ballot. The results (after 1680 ballots):

    Tina Turner 68% (she appeared on 68% of the ballots)
    Carole King 55%
    The Go-Go's 50%
    Iron Maiden 42%
    Foo Fighters 41%
    Dionne Warwick 35%
    Kate Bush 33%
    Rage Against the Machine 28%
    Jay-Z 27%
    Todd Rundgren 26%
    Chaka Khan 21%
    LL Cool J 19%
    Devo 17%
    New York Dolls 16%
    Fela Kuti 11%
    Mary J. Blige 10%

    I absolutely LOVE Belinda Carlisle, Charlotte Caffey, Jane Wiedlin, Kathy Valentine and Gina Schock, and I absolutely agree that the level of sexism and shameful politics over the years has been so against all-female bands who write their own songs, play their own instruments and pretty much manage themselves. It's time The Go-Go's prove that women CAN ROCK as well as their male counterparts.

    Next year, I'm hoping The Bangles (Susanna Hoffs, sisters Vicki & Debbi Peterson and Michael Steele) will be so honoured and I shall campaign just as passionately on their behalf. It's true that Michael is retired, but she deserves as many accolades as Susanna and the Petersons who are still active in the music industry. Susanna even recently hinted at new music on Instagram.

    I am so excited about the results tomorrow! I sent Best Wishes to The Go-Go's on Instagram and Belinda Carlisle replied with a love-heart!

    It's just been announced! The Go-Go's (Belinda Carlisle, Charlotte Caffey, Jane Wiedlin, Kathy Valentine & Gina Schock) have officially been inducted into The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame!

    I am so delighted!

    Next year, or in the near future, hopefully The Bangles (Susanna Hoffs, Vicki Peterson, Debbi Peterson & Michael Steele) will be nominated and hopefully win too!

    Unfortunately, I'm not surprised.

    I keep hoping the Rock & Roll HOF will regain some integrity and professionalism but that time has not yet arrived.

    I believe the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame displayed a lot of integrity and professionalism and a strong sense of solidarity with diversity, inclusiveness and equality with their choices, especially with their recognition of one of the most influential all-female bands in music history.

    You're certainly entitled to your opinion.

    Though anyone whose knowledgable about the music industry and trying to be objective and unbiased knows that rarely are the most deserving artists inducted. This has been a glaring problem for a long, long time.

    I've always believed that The Go-Go's and The Bangles are extremely deserving of this honour.

    I agree about The Go-Go's, Mikey. I'm a fan of theirs and appreciate their history. I also believe the Foo Fighters and Jay-Z are worthy of being in the HOF. The problem I have with their inductions (at this point in time) is that many other artists and bands are much more deserving and have been unfairly passed over time and again. This has been a problem with the HOF for a long time.
