The results are in! The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has announced its class of 2021.

Foo Fighters, JAY-Z, The Go Go’s, Tina Turner, Carole King, and Todd Rundgren will all be inducted during a ceremony held in Cleveland, Ohio on October 30th.

Additional honors include LL Cool J, Billy Preston, and Randy Rhoads, who will receive the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame’s Musical Excellence Award. Meanwhile, Kraftwerk, Gil Scott-Heron, and Charley Patton are each receiving the Early Influence Award. Sussex Records founder Clarence Avant is this year’s recipient of the Ahmet Ertegun Award, which honors non-performing industry professionals.

Last year’s class included inductees Nine Inch Nails, The Doobie Brothers, Depeche Mode, Notorious B.I.G., Whitney Houston, and T. Rex.

Congrats to the class of 2021!
