Ballots will be sent to more than 500 voters from the music industry who will select the inductees. They will be announced in December the induction ceremony to be held on March 14, 2011 at the Waldorf Astoria hotel in New York.

“We believe our nominating committee has put forth a list of artists that truly represents the wide variety of music that defines rock and roll,” Joel Peresman, president of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation said in a statement.

To be eligible for nomination into the Hall, acts must have released their first single or album at least 25 years prior to the nomination year. The 2011 nominees had to release their first recording no later than 1985.
