Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame: JAY-Z, Tina Turner, LL Cool J & More To Be Inducted Into Class of 2021

Published: Wednesday 12th May 2021 by Sam

The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame has unveiled the list of names that will be inducted into the Class of 2021.

And they are seismic.

For, JAY-Z, Tina Turner, and LL Cool J are amongst the coveted collection of stars who will be bestowed the monumental honor.

Full story below…

Moments ago, organizers for the incoming ceremony revealed the following inductees; a tally it says is the “most diverse in its history:

Performer Category:

  • Tina Turner
  • Carole King
  • The Go-Go’s
  • JAY-Z
  • Foo Fighters
  • Todd Rundgren

Early Influence Award:

  • Kraftwerk
  • Charley Patton
  • Gil Scott-Heron

Musical Excellence Award:

  • LL Cool J
  • Billy Preston
  • Randy Rhoads

Ahmet Ertegun Award:

  • Clarence Avant

RRHOF Chairman John Sykes said in a statement:

“This is our most diverse class in the history of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. It really represents the Hall’s ongoing commitment to honor the artists that have created not only rock and roll, but the sound of youth culture.”

Turner and King make history as one of few women (and artists overall) to be inducted twice; the former was inducted alongside her ex-husband Ike Turner in 1991, while King entered the Hall alongside her former songwriting partner Gerry Goffin in 1990 in a non-performer capacity.

LL Cool J notably makes it into the Hall after many years on the nomination ballot.

Fellow MC JAY-Z is being inducted in his first year of eligibility.

Inductees will join the elite list of past winners, which includes Michael Jackson, Madonna, The Beatles, Janet Jackson, Notorious B.I.G, and Whitney Houston. 

The Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame 2021 Induction Ceremony will take place at Cleveland, Ohio’s Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse on October 30. It will air on HBO Max shortly after.


Congratulations to all!

We’d have loved to see nominees such as Fela Kuti, Chaka Khan, and Mary J. Blige make the Class of 2021 list too. But there’s no denying that the names who did are all deserving.

    Chaka should’ve made it but they have to have at least one headline grabbing name like jay z. Respectable class tho
