Joan Jett is among the nominees to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this year.
"The definition of 'rock and roll' means different things to different people, but as broad as the classifications may be, they all share a common love of the music," said Joel Peresman, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation chief executive. "This year we again proudly put forth a fantastic array of groups and artists that span the entire genre that is 'rock and roll'."
Public Enemy, the Blackhearts, Rush, Kraftwerk and gangsta rappers N.W.A. are also listed as potential inductees this year.
