Chuck Berry. Buddy Holly. Fats Domino. Elvis Presley. The Beatles. Green Day? Yep, Green Day — that band from your childhood bedroom — might join those artists in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, as they were one of the artists nominated for induction this year. Also nominated were Nine Inch Nails, N.W.A, the Smiths, Lou Reed, Sting, the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Kraftwerk, Chic, Joan Jett & the Blackhearts, the Marvelettes, the Spinners, Stevie Ray Vaughan, War, and Bill Withers. To be considered, artists needed to have released their first single or album in or before 1989. We guess these were the artists Taylor Swift has been referring to?
