Madonna, the Beastie Boys and Donna Summer have been nominated for induction into the US Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, an industry report says.
Madonna released her debut single, Everybody, 25 years ago
Also in the running are Leonard Cohen, John Mellencamp, Chic, the Dave Clark Five and Afrika Bambaataa, according to Billboard magazine.
The nominees are chosen by a committee and are whittled down to a final list of five by more than 600 music experts.
Those acts will enter the hall, which is based in Cleveland, Ohio, in March.
Musicians can be considered for the honour 25 years after their first recording.
Last year's inductees were REM, Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, Van Halen, the Ronettes and Patti Smith.
Once included, the artists are featured in the Museum's Hall of Fame exhibit.
This includes a computerised jukebox containing every song of every inductee and a film on three big screens recounting their careers and music.
