George Michael, Soundgarden, A Tribe Called Quest, Willie Nelson, Missy Elliott, Cyndi Lauper, The Spinners, Sheryl Crow, and The White Stripes are also up for potential induction later this year.
It’s the fourth time Kate Bush has been nominated – the previous occasions were in 2018, 2021, and 2022. The nod comes after one of Bush’s most successful years, despite not having released any new music. Her 1985 single Running Up That Hill hit the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 and made it to No 1 in the United Kingdom following its use in the Netflix show Stranger Things.
The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame’s class of 2023 will be announced in May. The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame 2023 Induction Ceremony will take place in the the autumn.
In a statement about the 2023 nominees, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Foundation’s chairman, John Sykes, said, “This remarkable list of nominees reflects the diverse artists and music that the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame honors and celebrates. These artists have created their own sounds that have impacted generations and influenced countless others that have followed in their footsteps.”
Last year, Eminem, Dolly Parton, Pat Benatar & Neil Giraldo, Duran Duran, Eurythmics, Lionel Richie, and Carly Simon were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
