    Green Day may be future Rock and Roll Hall of Famers.

    Green Day may soon join rock's immortals.

    The Bay Area band with a 25-year recorded history has been nominated as a 2015 inductee to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in its first year of eligibility. Other acts being considered are The Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Chic, Joan Jett & the Blackhearts, Kraftwerk, The Marvelettes, N.W.A., Nine Inch Nails, Lou Reed, The Smiths, The Spinners, Sting, Stevie Ray Vaughan, War and Bill Withers.

    Rolling Stone has organized a "fan's ballot" that will count as one vote (of 700) toward the final determination; this public vote is open until December 9. 

    Winners won't be inducted into the Hall of Fame until April 2015, but they will be announced before the end of this year.
