Radiohead among the acts to be inducted into Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame

The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame 2019 inductees have been announced – and they include Radiohead, The Cure and Roxy Music.

The full list of nominees was announced back in October, before being whittled down to the final list.

Other acts being inducted include Janet Jackson, Stevie Nicks, Def Leppard, and the Zombies.

Artists are eligible for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 25 years after the release of their first album or single.

Radiohead were nominated last year, but didn’t make the final cut. Not that seemed too bothered by the snub.

“I don’t care,” Jonny Greenwood said in an interview. “Maybe it’s a cultural thing that I don’t really understand.”

In a press release with today’s announcement, a representative for Radiohead wrote, “The band thanks the Hall of Fame voting body and extends congratulations to this year’s fellow inductees.”

Nominees who failed to make the final cut for 2019 included Kraftwerk, MC5, Rufus & Chaka Khan, LL Cool J, Rage Against the Machine, Devo, Todd Rundgren and John Prine.

Last year saw Nina Simone, The Cars, Bon Jovi, The Moody Blues and Dire Straits all inducted.

The 34th Annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony takes place on March 29 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
