In addition, the ballot is stuffed with the likes of Rage Against the Machine, The Cure, Devo, Janet Jackson, Kraftwerk, LL Cool J, Roxy Music, Todd Rundgren, John Prine, MC5, Rufus featuring Chaka Khan and the Zombies.

Both Kraftwerk and LL Cool J have made it to nominee status the most times in previous years with five appearances each.

Prine is on the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ballot for the first time. The 2019 induction ceremony, presented by Klipsch Audio, will be held at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on March 29 and broadcast on HBO and SiriusXM. This is Smith's fifth time being nominated. Fans who visit the Rock Hall in Cleveland can also cast their vote at a kiosk adjacent to the gallery devoted to last year's inductees.

Stevie Nicks is already in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Fleetwood Mac.

Trump apologises to Kavanaugh for 'pain and suffering'
Some analysts said the court's reputation could suffer as it becomes perceived as a political, rather than a legal, institution. He thanked the Republicans who stood with Kavanaugh and said "it was a great honor to be involved in this situation".

Def Leppard, Rage Against the Machine and the MC5 are among the hard rock and alternative rock bands nominated for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame next year.

To be eligible for nomination, an individual artist or band must have released its first commercial recording at least 25 years prior to the year of nomination. For some, the pinnacle of the list contains musings such as one day winning a Grammy award.

Voting for the nominees will go through December 9.
