Dolly Parton and Kate Bush are among the 2022 nominees in the running to be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Museum in Cleveland in the US.
This year's nominees also include Duran, Duran, Eminem, Lionel Richie, Pat Benatar and Dionne Warwick. To be considered for inclusion in the museum, acts must have released their first commercial work at least 25 years ago.
The final list of seven inductees will be announced in May and the ceremony will be scheduled for later this year.
Fans can vote at rockhall.com or at the Hall of Fame in Cleveland until April 29, with the top five artists with the most votes will then be counted to select the final inductees.
The full list of 2021 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame nominees 2022 is: A Tribe Called Quest, Beck, Pat Benatar, Kate Bush, Devo, Duran Duran, Eminem, Eurythmics, Fela Kuti, Judas Priest, MC5, The New York Dolls, Dolly Parton, Rage Against the Machine, Lionel Richie, Carly Simon, Dionne Warwick.
"This year’s ballot recognises a diverse group of incredible artists, each who has had a profound impact on the sound of youth culture," said John Sykes, head of the foundation which runs the Rock Hall.
