The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame has announced the class of 2020. Whitney Houston, the Notorious B.I.G., Nine Inch Nails, Depeche Mode, T. Rex, and the Doobie Brothers will be inducted into the Rock Hall on May 2.
The induction ceremony will take place in Cleveland and broadcast live on HBO.
As Pitchfork reports, while Nine Inch Nails and Depeche Mode had both been nominated multiple times, it was the first year that Whitney, T. Rex, and the Doobies were considered. Biggie was the only artist who was nominated in his first year of eligibility (25 years after an artist’s first commercial release).
