Freaks Hall Class of 2017 Round 3 Ballot – The Polls Are Open!

24d7c6f0bba74713c473128fecc93b40

Rounds one and two for Rock ‘n’ Roll Freaks Hall class of 2017 are complete, and so far we selected ten new inductees.  Next up is our third and final round, in which we’ll be selecting from performers who debuted between 1967 and 1981, representing our 35 year cut-off date for consideration.

For those not already familiar with the Freaks Hall, here is a quick explanation:

The Freaks Hall honors artists, groups and contributors who have not been recognized by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Commercial success and/or critical acclaim are not factors in choosing candidates or inductees. Rather, we seek to spotlight those people who embody the true spirit of rock ‘n’ roll in their recordings, performances, and in the lives they’ve lived. In fact, we often strive to recognize those who are not likely to ever be invited to one of the establishment’s made for TV galas – the forgotten heroes, the renegades, and the free spirits who have left a unique imprint on the history of rock ‘n’ roll.

HOW TO VOTE: Below is the list of our 25 nominees. Select up to 15 (minimum of ten) and send your ballot to rocknrollfreaks@gmail.com. The polls are open until Friday, November 25 at 8:00 PM EST. The top five vote getters will be inducted as part of our Freaks Hall class of 2017.
