Janet Jackson, LL Cool J, Radiohead, Chaka Khan. 2019’s list of Rock & Roll Hall of Fame nominees is stacked with excellence, but if it were up to us, there definitely would’ve been some other names on the roster.

Before you say it, yes—we’re aware there are already a bunch of these lists floating around. We’re also aware that there were multiple acts not acknowledged by said lists this year who should definitely make the cut for 2020. So here are all the acts that really should be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, according to us, because we’re feeling a way.

Before we forget: voting for 2019 is open until Dec. 9, and winners will be announced during a ceremony at Brooklyn’s Barclay Center on March 29, 2019.
