“This year’s ballot recognizes a diverse group of incredible artists, each who has had a profound impact on the sound of youth culture,” John Sykes — chairman of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Foundation — said in a statement.

“Their music not only moved generations but also influenced the sound of countless artists that followed.”
