The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this morning announced the acts considered for induction for 2015. They are:

The Paul Butterfield Blues Band
Green Day
Joan Jett & the Blackhearts
The Marvelettes
Nine Inch Nails
Lou Reed
The Smiths
The Spinners
Stevie Ray Vaughan
Bill Withers

An individual artist or band must have released their first single or album at least 25 years prior to the year of nomination in order to be considered for induction. That means the 2015 nominees had to release their first recording no later than 1989.

“We are pleased to present this group of nominees, as they represent the myriad places where rock and roll converges with blues, electronic, dance, Motown, R&B, funk and other genres,” Joel Peresman, president and CEO of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation, said in a statement announcing the nominees.

The inductees, chosen by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s voting body, will be announced in December.
