The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame unveiled its 2020 class, which includes some of the most influential artists in the music industry. Whitney Houston, Nine Inch Nails, Depeche Mode, The Notorious BIG, T. Rex, and The Doobie Brothers were bestowed with this prestigious honor this year.
Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails and Michael McDonald of The Doobie Brothers released statements celebrating their induction, and so did the members of Depeche Mode, who also thanked everyone who supported their music over the years and made this possible.
“We’re incredibly honored to be included as one of this year’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees, and to stand alongside the other incredible acts in the Rock Hall and those joining this year,” reads the band’s official statement.
Dave Matthews Band, Judas Priest, and Motörhead were among the artists who were in the running to make it to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame this year but eventually failed to make the cut.
The induction ceremony will take place on May 2nd at Cleveland’s Public Hall, and it will get its first live broadcast on HBO.
