The mighty Black Sabbath battle Joe Cocker for the right to advance to the semifinals of our September / October Hall of Fame elections. Every two months, our readers will determine which of eight legendary artists or bands is immortalized forever for their contributions to classic-rock history

Emerging from Birmingham, England in the late '60s, Black Sabbath are widely credited with creating the template for the entire heavy metal genre. Cocker is perhaps the most famous vocal interpreter in classic rock history, boldly making songs by the Beatles and others his own.

So who will move onto the next round? You can vote for whoever you'd like once a day from now until 11:59PM ET on Oct. 6. You can read the Hall of Fame’s official rules right here. Be sure to mark your calendars for Nov. 4, when the seventh entrant into the Ultimate Classic Rock Hall of Fame is revealed.
