The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame announced the nominees for induction into the 2019 Rock Hall class early Tuesday morning, which included two major gay icons, one of the sexiest rappers of all time, a legendary 80's hair band and many, many more.

Ballots are sent to an international voting body of more than 1,000 artists, historians and music industry figures who consider "an artist's musical influence on other artists, length and depth of career and the body of work, innovation and superiority in style and technique," according to Rock Hall.

Fans can get involved as well, as a ballot just for them is available online and in person at the Rock Hall's museum in Cleveland. Ballots are now open, and fans can cast a vote a day through Dec. 9 at 11:59 p.m. ET.
