Depeche Mode, Whitney Houston, Nine Inch Nails, Notorious B.I.G. and more inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
This year, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame will induct six new artists that defined the 80s, the 90s, and a bit of the 70s.
Leading the pack are synth-pop pioneers Depeche Mode, along with dynamic R&B singer Whitney Houston. Trent Reznor’s long-running, ever-evolving industrial rock outfit Nine Inch Nails is in the mix, as well as game-changing Brooklyn rap touchstone The Notorious B.I.G. And from the classic rock era, the twangy jammers The Doobie Brothers and the glam-tinged T.Rex round out the Rock Hall Class of 2020.
Also inducted are two non-musician members of the music industry: journalist, producer, and Bruce Springsteen collaborator Jon Landau, and Azoff MSG Entertainment CEO Irving Azoff.
The Rock Hall induction ceremony takes place May 2nd in Cleveland and will be broadcast live on HBO. Watch music videos from the inductees below.
