Cheap Trick, Chicago, Deep Purple, N.W.A. and Steve Miller will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
The five acts and several others who have not yet been announced will be celebrated at a ceremony in April, Billboard reports. To some fans, these selections mark an overdue tribute to bands that have helped change the sound of rock.
“Before, when we had more than 40 people on the committee, there was just so little time for more than just going around the room and giving your list,” the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation President and CEO Joel Peresman told Billboard. “This year, there was more free-form discussion where people could truly be advocates and ask more and better questions. [The committee] could dig a little deeper into the importance and the impact of these bands.”
