Kate Bush, Nine Inch Nails, The Smiths, The Replacements, Eurythmics, J Geils Band, Judas Priest, The Meters, Depeche Mode, Eric B. & Rakim, Sister Rosetta Sharpe, and Link Wray were dropped from last year's ballot.

There were no nominations for artists who became eligible this year including the likes of Outkast, Beck, Snoop Dogg, Jeff Buckley, Fugees, The Roots, and Dave Matthews Band.
