This had come under question as there is no CAG report on this yet. The Supreme Court certainly seems to have got this one wrong.

Three of the Inductees were on the ballot for the first time, including: Def Leppard, Stevie Nicks (as a solo artist) and Roxy Music.

Radiohead fans were furious past year after the band failed to be inducted, but guitarist Ed O'Brien previous revealed his bemusement concerning all things Rock Hall.

Jackson was nominated in October 2018 and was voted into the highly prestigious institution by over 1,000 global artists, including music industry professionals, historians and living inductees. For now I will just say, I have been in a band since 1968.

Frontman Joe Elliott said he was initially ambivalent toward the honour until Jon Bon Jovi suggested it would change his life. Other 2019 nominees who did not make the cut included LL Cool J, Devo, Rage Against the Machine, MC5, John Prine, Todd Rundgren and Kraftwerk. While she became eligible for the rock hall in 2007, she was not nominated until 2016. How wonderful to be in the same club as The Rolling Stones and The Beatles and The Who and Queen and etc., etc.' It's nice.

Rock Hall inductees for Radiohead include Thom Yorke, Jonny Greenwood, Colin Greenwood, Ed O'Brien and Philip Selway.

With her album Control, she forged a lane for herself in pop music, while also marking herself as an independent woman with something to say. "I think it might be a quintessential American thing". "It's one of the most exciting days in my professional career". HBO will air an edited version of the event along with SiriusXM, and ticketing information will be announced in January.
