Pearl Jam, Depeche Mode, Tupak Shakur, Jane's Addiction, Janet Jackson and Journey are just a few of the 2017 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Nominees.  Talk about a diverse group!  To see all 19 nominees, and to rock your top 5 votes DAILY through December 5th, click here

 

Check out the full overview of the 2017 Nominees!

 

To be eligible for nomination into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, artists must have had released their first single at least 25 years prior. This year marks Pearl Jam's first shot at eligibility, and they of course rocked it!  Duh! Who remembers this performance?

 

5 out of the 19 nominees will be inducted in December, with the induction ceremony taking place in April in New York City. Former inductees with Seattle ties include Nirvana, Heart and The Jimi Hendrix Experience.

2- Depeche Mode 

3- Steppenwolf

4 - Journey

5 - Jane's Addiction
