Nominees who didn't make the cut in 1991
These artists were officially nominated in the Performer category for induction in 1990, but didn't receive enough votes from the "international voting body of rock experts" to get in that year. Nearly 70% of rejected artists eventually get inducted in a later year.
|Artist||Eventually Inducted In|
|Bobby "Blue" Bland||1992|
|Frankie Lymon and the Teenagers||1993|
