The 2021 Rock Hall nominations have sparked that genre debate again
On Wednesday, the 16 artists nominated to be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame this year were finally announced. Foo Fighters, Iron Maiden, JAY-Z, Tina Turner and Rage Against The Machine are among the acts nominated this year.
Now, it looks like the nominations have sparked that debate about what is considered rock music again.
It seems like every year the Rock Hall announces its induction nominees, the internet begins debating what rock music actually is. Last year, music fans weighed in on the controversy after artists such as the Notorious B.I.G. and Whitney Houston were nominated and eventually inducted into the Rock Hall.social media LL Cool J Mary J.

However, some also argue that the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame should just be renamed to the Music Hall Of Fame. That way, more artists can be included in the nominations and the name can better reflect the artists already inducted.
