The Hollywood Walk of Fame is mostly associated with film and television, but it also honored many of the world’s leading recording artists over the years. The list of 2025 inductees is in, and it includes Prince, Green Day, and Depeche Mode in the recording categories.

According to the Hollywood Walk of Fame chairman Peter Roth, “each honoree truly embodies the essence of excellence in their respective field” and they’re thrilled to announce the distinguished honorees who will grace the iconic Walk of Fame in 2025.

Legendary musician Prince, who passed away in 2016, is one of the most notable names on the list, and he’ll receive a posthumous star. He’s also been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and received numerous prestigious accolades during his tenure, including seven Grammys and an Academy Award.

Several of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees made it to the list of the Hollywood Walk of Fame honorees, including the English electronic band Depeche Mode, the punk legends Green Day, and the soul/funk group The Isley Brothers.

Fantasia, Los Bukis, The B-52s, Busta Rhymes, George Strait, Keith Urban, and War are also among the most recent recipients, and the dates of their Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremonies are yet to be set.
