On the list of newcomers is rapper Jay-Z and the band Foo Fighters who managed to be nominated in the first year they became eligible – after the first album was released 25 years ago.
But three of the nominees – Dave Grohl, Tina Turner and Carole King – will enter the Hall of Fame a second time. Dave Grohl had in the famous hall of fame as a drummer for Nirvana (2014), Tina Turner as part of the duo Tina & Ike (1991) and Carole King with his former composer Gerry Goffin (1990).
