There's a chance for some new blood flowing into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this year.
The newest list of nominees is out and of the 16 acts up for votes, eight are first-times.
Leading the way are Nirvana, Linda Ronstadt, Peter Gabriel, Hall and Oates, and The Replacements. Also up for the first time are YES, Link Wray and The Zombies. They join previous nominees like KISS, LL Cool J, N.W.A., Cat Stevens, Deep Purple and Chic in the running for induction. But the first timers shouldn't get their hopes up just yet. Chic is up for the Hall for the eighth time since 2003 - and are still on the outside, looking in.
The class of 2014 will be announced in December with an induction ceremony set for next April in New York.
