Metallica is among the top nominees heading into the Classic Rock Roll of Honour.  The group is a contender for Band of the Year and Film of the Year for their movie Through The Never.

But each category includes an impressive lineup of acts. Black Sabbath, Guns N' Roses, Queen + Adam Lambert, and Iron Maiden are some of the other groups vying for the Band award, while the Stones' "Sweet Summer Sun, Hyde Park Live" and The Doors' "R-Evolution" are also up in the Film category. 

Surviving Doors members Robby Krieger and John Densmore will also be on hand for the event. The Doors are this year's Inspiration Award recipients. Gregg Allman is another honoree, and will receive the Living Legend Award. 

The list of nominees also includes Judas Priest, Bruce Springsteen, Yes, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, and others.  Sammy Hagar is on board to host the ceremony, which this year is leaving London and being staged in the U.S. 

The Classic Rock Roll of Honour 2014 will take place in Los Angeles on Tuesday, and be taped to air on AXS TV next month.
