Approximately 600 voters, made up of music industry veterans, as well as critics, historians and previous inductees, will submit secret ballots. A "fan's ballot" will also be added to the mix. Fans can vote now through Dec. 10 via the Hall of Fame's website, and the top five fans choices will make up that one "fan's ballot."

The 29th annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony takes place in April in New York and will be broadcast on HBO, according to CNN.
