We'll have to wait 'til December to find out which of the nominees will become inductees, but here are the artists and bands in the running for the 2017 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame:

Bad Brains
Chaka Khan
Chic
Depeche Mode
Electric Light Orchestra
J. Geils Band
Jane’s Addiction
Janet Jackson
Joan Baez
Joe Tex
Journey
Kraftwerk
MC5
Pearl Jam
Steppenwolf
The Cars
The Zombies
Tupac Shakur
Yes

This is the first year that Pearl Jam and Tupac Shakur are eligable. To be considered, an artist or band must have released its first single or album at least 25 years before the nomination.

Who will get inducted? Billboard broke down the odds in this article.

While I've got a personal place in my heart for many of the nominees, I'm gonna go out on a limb and say my beloved Pearl Jam's got it in the bag.
