This year's nominees for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame include rap mogul Jay-Z, the Foo Fighters and Tina Turner.

Member of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame – a thoroughly honorable title. 16 artists now have the chance to be included in the famous list. The responsible foundation has announced this year's nominees, for whom fans can now vote via online voting.

The nominees include the rappers Jay-Z (51, "The Black Album") and LL Cool J (53), the Foo Fighters, Iron Maiden, Rage Against The Machine, Kate Bush (62), Tina Turner (81), Mary J. Blige (50), Carole King (79) and Dionne Warwick (80). Tina Turner would be inducted for the second time after making it as part of Ike & Tina Turner in 1991. Carole King is already featured as a songwriter and this time would appear on the list as a singer. The front man of the Foo Fighters, Dave Grohl (52), has already been accepted as a member of Nirvana.

"This remarkable selection reflects the diversity and depth of the artists and music that the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame celebrates," said the chairman of the responsible foundation, John Sykes, on Wednesday. Only artists whose first official music release was 25 years ago make it into the Hall of Fame. With Jay-Z and the Foo Fighters there are two newly approved acts. The fans have until April 30th to vote for their favorites. The winners will be announced in May.
