This years list can be polarizing depending on who you talk to. Then again music discussions historically are polarizing. 

The list of this year's nominees include bands like The Cure, Radiohead, Def Leppard, Rage Against the Machine, The Zombies, Todd Rundgren, as well as Hip-hop artists like LL Cool J, pop stars like Janet Jackson and more.

The way the fan voting has gone, it looks like Def Leppard, Stevie Nicks, and Todd Rundgren are leading ( the last one is kinda odd ) because their fan bases are huge. Wherein other bands like the 90's one's Rage, and Radiohead are just in the middle of the pack.  Maybe their fans don't consider them old yet because they are still relevant today.

The Stevie Nicks situation is curious because she is already in the hall with Fleetwood Mac and one would say her solo stuff wasn't as strong as the Fleetwood stuff but here she is and it looks like her fans are going get her in.
