Daily Clip: October 9, 2014
Green Day and Nine Inch Nails were announced today as nominees for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, headlining a class of nominees in their first year of eligibility for induction. Announced alongside the California pop-punk act and the Midwestern industrial rockers were N.W.A., Lou Reed, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Sting and the Smiths.
It's a stacked class, to be certain, and some may be surprised to see Green Day on the ballot in their first year of eligibility. The band's breakout album, 1994's Dookie, helped bring pop-punk to the mainstream in a big way and their 2004 insta-classic American Idiot brought them even more worldwide recognition.
Which of the acts above are you most surprised to see on the ballot for 2015? Which bands aren't here that should be? Trending 10 hosts Dan Brown and Katie van Buren discuss those two topics in the daily clip–watch it above!–but we want to hear from you as well. Let us know in the comments about who's getting snubbed, and who should be passed over this year.
