The Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame’s Class of 2022 has been announced. Dolly Parton, Eminem and Carly Simon are among inductees.

Duran Duran, Lionel Richie, Eurythmics and Pat Benatar have also been voted into the institution. Parton initially tried to bow out of consideration but last week told NPR she’d “accept gracefully.” Those nominated who will not be inducted are Rage Against The Machine, Beck, Kate Bush, Devo, Dionne Warwick, A Tribe Called Quest, Fela Kuti, MC5 and New York Dolls.

Also nominated was Judas Priest. The group will go in as the recipients of the Musical Excellence Award along with Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. Additionally, Harry Belafonte and Elizabeth Cotten will receive the Early Influence Award while attorney Allen Grubman, producer/record executive Jimmy Iovine and Sugar Hill Records founder Sylvia Robinson will each be honored with the Ahmet Ertegun Award.

The Class of 2022 will be inducted during a ceremony held at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on November 5. HBO and HBO Max will broadcast the ceremony at a later date with a simulcast airing on SiriusXM’s Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Radio (Channel 310). Stay tuned for ticketing information.
