The 2024 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame nominations also feature Foreigner, Peter Frampton, Lenny Kravitz, and the Dave Matthews Band among its list of potential inductees.
The nominees for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame class of 2024 have been revealed, with Ozzy Osbourne, Jane’s Addiction, and Oasis making the cut. Joining them on the list are Foreigner, Lenny Kravitz, the Dave Matthews Band, and Peter Frampton.
Completing the 15-strong list of nominees for 2024 are Mary J. Blige, Mariah Carey, Cher, Eric B. & Rakim, Kool & the Gang, Sinéad O’Connor, Sade, and A Tribe Called Quest.
Rock Hall Chairman John Sykes expresses, “This impressive lineup of nominees mirrors the diverse array of artists and music that the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame recognizes and celebrates.”
“In the true spirit of Rock & Roll, these artists have crafted their own unique sounds that have left an indelible mark on generations and influenced countless others who have followed in their footsteps.”
Ozzy’s nomination follows a statement from Sharon Osbourne just four months ago, advocating for his induction into the Rock Hall as a solo artist. The legendary musician already holds a place in the Rock Hall as the frontman of Black Sabbath, who were inducted in 2006.
Confirming Ozzy’s nomination, the Rock Hall describes him as “rock’s beloved Prince of Darkness,” highlighting his role as a key architect of heavy metal and one of the most successful solo artists in history. Known for his instantly recognizable voice and captivating live performances, Ozzy brings a theatrical flair to his electrifying shows, earning him the title of Godfather of Heavy Metal.
To be eligible for nomination, an artist must have released their first commercial recording at least 25 years prior. Fans can cast their votes for their favorites among the nominees on the Rock Hall website. The successful inductees will be announced in April, with the induction ceremony scheduled for later in the year.
Regarding Jane’s Addiction’s nomination, the Rock Hall notes their pioneering role in bringing subversive underground sounds into the mainstream, paving the way for alternative artists like Soundgarden and Nirvana.
Describing Oasis as “among the most successful and influential acts of all time,” the Rock Hall highlights their massive record sales and the inspiration they’ve provided to countless bands such as the Killers and Arctic Monkeys.
