Rock nominees announced

CLEVELAND, Sept. 23 (UPI) — ABBA, Kiss, LL Cool J, Red Hot Chili Peppers and The Stooges are among the nominees for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in 2010.

Also nominated Wednesday for the honor were Darlene Love, Donna Summer, Genesis, Jimmy Cliff, Laura Nyro, The Chantels and The Hollies.

Ballots will be sent to more than 500 voters, who will select artists to be inducted at the 25th annual induction ceremony March 15 at the Waldorf Astoria in New York.

To be eligible, an act must have released its first single or album at least 25 years prior to the year of nomination. This year’s nominees had to release their first single no later than 1984, the museum said on its Web site.
