Stevie Nicks is the first woman in history to be inducted into the Hall of Fame twice. In a statement released, Nicks shared “I have a lot to say about this. But I will save those words for later. For now I will just say, I have been in a band since 1968. To be recognized for my solo work makes me take a deep breath and smile. It’s a glorious feeling.”

Last year, Radiohead became eligible to enter the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for the first time. The band responded in the most quintessentially British way ever, with complete apathy. Jonny Greenwood told Rolling Stone, “I don’t care. Maybe it’s a cultural thing that I really don’t understand. I mean, from the outside it looks like … it’s quite a self-regarding profession anyway. And anything that heightens that just makes me feel even more uncomfortable.” Upon hearing the news of their induction, the band released the following statement: “The band thanks the Hall of Fame voting body and extends congratulations to this year’s fellow inductees.”
Legendary producer Brian Eno is among the Roxy Music members that will be inducted, he joins Bryan Ferry, Andy Mackay, Phil Manzanera, Eddie Jobson, and Paul Thompson.
Rage Against the Machine, KrafRage Against the Machine, Kraftwerk, MC5, Rufus & Chaka Khan, LL Cool J, Devo, Todd Rundgren, and John Prine were the remaining nominees that missed out on induction.
