Say you want your favorite in the Rock Hall? Beginning today and running through 11:59 p.m. EST December 5, fans can vote for their picks at RockHall.com. The top five acts picked by the public will comprise a “fans’ ballot” that will be included with the other ballots.

The final 2018 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees will be announced in December, chosen by a voting body of more than 900 artists, music industry insiders and music historians.

The 2018 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will take place April 14 in Cleveland, Ohio. The ceremony will air on HBO.
