It's the Time of the Season: Rock Hall Watchers Predict the Class of 2019

Who will be inducted into the Rock Hall on March 29? Anticipation is building, as the official ballots are due this Monday, December 10. Meanwhile, the Hall's fairly revealing Fan Vote finds Def Leppard and Stevie Nicks safely locking up the top two spots, followed by Todd Rundgren, the Zombies, and the Cure. 

The Class of 2019 inductees announcement hits Thursday, December 13 at 8 a.m EST on SiriusXM Volume (channel 106), and presumably via a simultaneous press conference at the Cleveland museum. Until then, here are some insightful predictions from Rock Hall watcher community:

  1. Interesting that none of them predict The Cure will get in. I hope Future Rock Legends and Rock Hall Monitors are both wrong about Radiohead and John Prine being inducted over Janet since they are both behind in the fan vote.

    1. Honestly, I hope more that I'm wrong about Stevie getting in. If it were my top six with Janet instead of Stevie, that'd be dynamite. It'd still suck to have no LL Cool J or Kraftwerk, but that wouldn't be a bad six.

  2. Most of them picked 4 or 5 of the 7.
