2015 Nominees, Nick wrote:
|Since the inclusion of the fan ballot on the rock hall website, I believe whoever has the most votes is guaranteed induction that year. Rush and Kiss received the most votes and got inducted and I believe their high marks on the fan ballot plays a major factor here. Remember Rush and Kiss were never critics' darlings (especially Kiss) but receiving the most votes on the fan ballot pushed them toward an induction. Plus, both fans have devoted fan bases that will (and did) anything in their power to receive at the top of the fan ballot in their induction years. At the end of the day, the Rock Hall is an institution with the intention of making profits. It would look ready bad on the Rock Hall to not induct the person who receives the most votes on a given year. This year will be no different: Stevie Ray Vaughn or Nine Inch Nails (or both, let's hope) will get inducted.|
Nine Inch Nails or Stevie Ray Vaughn will have the most votes on the fan ballot this year (by a wide margin). They are neck-to-neck for first place. By December, I think Nine Inch Nails will still be number one on the fan ballot because they have a devoted fan base that will vote for them tirelessly. I think Stevie Ray Vaughn will probably be an inductee for 2015; Nine Inch Nails is not as much of a sure-fire thing with Green Day also being a first-ballot nominee this year. However, if Nine Inch Nails receives the most votes, the Rock Hall cannot deny the impact of the fan ballot. If Nine Inch Nails gets the most votes and doesn't get inducted, that would be a middle finger to the fans voting for them.

|I fully expect Yes to return to the nomination ballot in October, 2015 along with The Moody Blues, Duran Duran, Sade, Doobie Brothers, etc. This time however, I think that there will be a greater chance for their induction. |
As far as who will be inducted from Yes is concerned, that is certainly anybody's guess. However, I am inclined to believe that these individuals are most likely:
Peter Banks (posthumously)
