Pearl Jam, Tupac Shakur And The Rest Of The Artists Nominated For Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame Induction In 2017

The list of eligible artists for Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction in 2017 almost all have something in common. And that something is that a lot of them rose to fame in the early 90s. From Pearl Jam (who people think is a lock to make it on their first ballot) to The Cranberries, Alice In Chain, Hole and Soundgarden, we’ve got some heavy hitters from the “Grunge” era.

While some of the names on this list might have to learn to love saying the phrase “it’s an honor just being eligible” there are others who could easily be inducted alongside Pearl Jam this year, because as we established, THEY ARE A FUCKING LOCK.
