The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame have revealed their nominees for the class of 2017. Among the potential inductees include Pearl Jam, Jane’s Addiction and Bad Brains.

The full list of nominees for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame include Pearl Jam, Jane’s Addiction, Bad Brains, The MC5, Journey, Yes, Tupac Shakur, Depeche Mode, Electric Light Orchestra, Janet Jackson, the Cars, the Zombies, Chaka Khan, Chic, J. Geils Band, Joan Baez, Joe Tex, Kraftwerk and Steppenwolf.

Pearl Jam and Tupac have both been nominated during their first year of eligibility. Though it’s not Jane’s Addiction or Bad Brains’ first year eligible, this is the first time both have have received a nomination. Yes have been nominated for induction twice before.

For the fifth consecutive year, the public will be given the opportunity to vote for who they want to see in the Rock Hall. However, the public vote as a whole will only count as one tiny fraction of the total votes, as more than 800 artists, historians and music industry insiders make up the Rock Hall’s voting body. After the public poll closes on Dec. 6, the five nominees with the highest number of fan ballads will each receive one extra vote going toward their overall total. You can visit the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s website to cast your votes.

The next Rock Hall induction ceremony will take place in April 2017 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y.
