Since 1986, The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame has been inducting those who have made an impression on the evermore detailed map of pop and rock music. And yeah, the ceremony might be a little chintzy, and some may consider the whole think a giant joke, and the whole argument of contemporary relevance is all but hurled out the the window, and the fact that ABBA is in there and Brian Eno isn’t is enough to set yourself on fire — but it beats the living hell out of any other televised American music awards show, and usually the ceremony ekes some gnarly performances out of the inductees. This year, 15 nominees were selected, and on average, five to seven of those nominees will be selected. So, without further ado, here are your 2011 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Performer Nominees. Who do you think should make the cut?
