Here’s a piece of news that will make 90s kids feel their age: the latest crop of nominees for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. To be eligible for this consideration, 25 years have to have passed since the release of your first album. That means both Radiohead and Rage Against the Machine have made the list. (I KNOW!) These are the 19 names that will be put forward for 2018.

Things will be whittled down to a final induction list of 5 by a group of some 900 music industry people, music historians and artists. There’s also a public component where regular folk can vote until December 5. Results will be announced at the end of the year with the induction ceremony happening in April.
