The 2020 inductees to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame have been announced. Depeche Mode, The Doobie Brothers, Whitney Houston, Nine Inch Nails, The Notorious B.I.G. and T-Rex will be receiving the prestigious honor.
To be eligible for the Hall of Fame an individual artist or band must have released their first commercial recording at least 25 years prior to the year of nomination. Ballots were cast by an international voting body of more than 1,000 artists, including current living Inductees, historians and members of the music industry. Factors such as an artist’s musical influence, body of work, innovation, style and technique are taken into consideration with the voting, according to the organization.
Additionally, Jon Landau and Irving Azoff are the recipients of the Ahmet Ertegun Award.
