Radiohead and Rage Against the Machine, have been nominated for the first time in 2018 (The official requirement is to have published official material 15 years before the nomination date, meaning their first official recordings were released in 1992 ), as well as Kate Bush, Nina Simone, Dire Straits, Eurythmics, Judas Priest, Sister Rosetta Tharpe and Moody Blues.
