Surprise, surprise. British iconic alt bands JOY DIVISION
and NEW ORDER (JD without the late Ian Curtis)
Why?: “Joy Division and New Order: two bands that share a single story.
It is the remarkable tale of innovative musicians who created something
revolutionary and massively influential, not once, but twice. They were gothic
rock pioneers who became electronic dance-floor innovators and a beacon
for thousands of bands that followed.”
Other great artists/bands are part of the nominees’ cast, including Kate Bush,
Soundgarden, Rage Against the Machine, The White Stripes, Cyndi Lauper, Missy
Elliot, Warren Zevon, and more. Wow! I can’t remember a remarkable list like
this year’s one.
From now through April 28th, fans are now able to vote for their choice of nominees
on the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Website. From these, five fan-chosen finalists will comprise a single ballot that will be included alongside the voting membership tally in deciding the final Class of 2023 inductees.
