The 2023 nominees (usually around 15) for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame could be announced in late January/early February. Voting for the short-listed nominees by fans will take place soon thereafter.  Radiohead was nominated in 2018 and inducted in its second year of eligibility in 2019.   Beck, Kate Bush and RATM could be on the ballot again next year. Coldplay is eligible in 2024. Some acts like The Cure, Duran Duran and Eurythmics must wait and finally  get inducted after 10-15 years of eligibility.

Unofficial possible criteria  for induction:

Artistic merit

Influence on other artists


Critical Acclaim


Body of Work/Oeuvre

Songwriting/Social and Political Messaging 

Live Performance Reputation

Career Longevity

Awards and Nominations (Grammys, The Brits, Ivor Novello)

Fan Voting/Popularity 

Commerical Success (Concert ticket sales and album sales)


Thom Yorke: “You [Americans] have at least the chance to push him [Trump] off the cliff—just him. We’re tied to these guys [BoJo et al]. They’re tying us up and they’re going to take us off the cliff with them, and as they do it, they’re saying they’re the will of the people. It’s kind of disturbing. We live in strange times.” After a beat, Yorke added, “It’s not my fault.” - Interview with Stephen Colbert on The Late Show in October 2019.
