“This diverse group of inductees each had a profound impact on the sound of youth culture and helped change the course of rock & roll,” John Sykes, chairman of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, said in a statement. “Their music moved generations and influenced so many artists that followed.”
Parton brought more attention to this year’s process in March after she released a statement on social media saying “I really do not want votes to be split because of me, so I must respectfully bow out.”
To be eligible for induction into the Hall of Fame as a performer, an individual artist or band must have released its first commercial recording at least 25 years prior to the year of nomination.
The induction ceremony is set to be held at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on November 5 and will air at a later date on HBO and HBO Max, which are owned by CNN’s parent company.
