Bon Jovi has a shot at being in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. The band has been nominated for the second time.

Bon Jovi has been eligible for 9 years, and this is only the second time during those years that the band has been nominated, according to nj.com. So is this the year for Bon Jovi to make it into the Hall?

Here's what I say. What's taking so long? This is one of the biggest rock bands of all time. Period. They have literally dominated decades. How many bands can say that? And they have had amazing success over 4 decades. And how many bands can say that?

With millions of records sold, and sold out shows everywhere they go, Bon Jovi is and has been a major rock force since the 80's. And they seem to be as popular now with a new generation of fans than they've ever been.

I don't know if there are rock politics involved here, but if there are, they should be put aside and Bon Jovi should have a place in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.Come on...they've seen a million places and they've rocked them all!

The 2018 inductees will be announced in December.
