The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, commonly referred to as the Rock Hall, is a museum and hall of fame located in downtown Cleveland, Ohio. Artists are inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame at an annual induction ceremony. Over the years, the majority of the ceremonies have been held at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York City. This year it will be held on November 3, 2023 at The Barclay Center in Brooklyn New York.

A nominating committee compiled of rock and roll historians selects names for the “Performers” category. (singers, vocal groups, bands, and instrumentalists of all kinds), which are then voted on by roughly 500 experts across the world.

Other categories are the Musical Excellence award. Formerly the “Sidemenaward. This category was introduced in 2000 who are selected by a committee of producers.

The Ahmet Ertegun award,formerly the “Non-Performers” award. This category encompasses those who primarily work behind the scenes in the music industry. To include record label executives, songwriters, record producers, disc jockeys, concert promoters and music journalists. This category has had at least one inductee every year except 2007 and 2009. Following the death of the Hall of Fame’s co-founder Ahmet Ertegun, this award was renamed in his honor in 2008.

Some controversies regarding the Rock n’ Roll Hall Of fame is the nomination process is controlled by people who are not  musicians.

According to “Rock’s highest honour” hasn’t been about rock for a while, but it’s increasingly looking like it’s not about music.”

In 1986, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame announced its first group of inductees: Buddy Holly, Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley, Fats Domino, James Brown, Jerry Lee Lewis, Little Richard, Ray Charles, Sam Cooke and the Everly Brothers.
