Just a couple of weeks ago, The Lake ran a special weekend featuring classic hits artists who are not in the Hall of Fame in Cleveland. Among those artist we featured such acts as Chicago, Cheap Trick and the Cars. Well, wouldn't you know it, this year's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominees came out this morning and in the mix, among other classic hits artist are Chicago, the Cars and Cheap Trick. Were the people at the Hall of Fame listening to the Lake that weekend?

Some of the other classic hits acts that are nominated are Yes, Deep Purple and Steve Miller. According to the website, Loudwire, the stipulations for being nominated for the Hall of are:

Acts become eligible for nomination into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 25 years after the release of their first record, but can continue to be on the ballot each year if they fail to get inducted in prior years.

Now here's where you can actually get involved in the process of Hall of Fame induction, because just average folks like you and me can vote on the nominees. Our votes don't count as much as the industry insiders votes, but we can make our voices heard. Here's where you go to vote for the Hall of Fame.

The actual inductees will be announced this December and we'll let you know how the nominated groups do in the voting. You can read more about the hall of Fame and the nominees HERE.
