Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame Has Announced Its 35 Annual Class Of Inductees, Honoring Six Musical Acts Depeche Mode, Doobie Brothers, Whitney Houston, Nine Inch Nails, Notorious BIG And T-Rex As Well As Veteran Rock Journalist, Producer And Artist Manager Jon Landau. Inducted musicians were chosen from ballot of 16 finalists, which means fans of Pat Benatar, Dave Matthews Band, Judas Priest, Kraftwerk, MC5, Motorhead, Rufus featuring Chaka Khan, Todd Rundgren, Soundgarden and Thin Lizzy will have to wait at least another year for Rock Hall validation. Speaking on Morning Edition Monday, music writer Evelyn McDonnell discussed study she'd conduct, which revealed that only 69 of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 888 members, fewer than 8 percentage were women. With latest announcement, ratio grows slightly more lopsided, with only Houston joining Hall's ranks alongside BIG and members of four all-male bands. Depeche Mode break through in 1980s with string of classic albums that combined synth-pop with energy of post-punk and Rock. Band's Commercial Peak Arrived In Early '90s Most Notably With Violator And Its Hits Personal Jesus And Enjoy Silence, But Depeche Mode Continued To Release Albums And Tour Stadiums. Doobie Brothers ' Fluid Blend Of Rootsy Sounds Folk, Rock, Country And R & B Helped Define Yacht Rock Side Of Commercially Successful Rock And Roll In 1970s. Listen to music, takin' It to Streets and what Fools believe are among group's best-know songs, but they're only three of many. With nearly 50 million records sell, Doobie Brothers still endure after almost half century. Whitney Houston is one of most commercially successful pop and R & B singers of all time, filling '80s and '90s with chart-topping classics. Her cover of Dolly Parton's i Will Always Love You was old Town Road of its day, topping Billboard Hot 100 for then-record 14 weeks and her legend has only grown since her death in 2012. Nine Inch Nails seemed unlikely Rock and Roll Hall of Famer when Trent Reznor first started releasing abrasive industrial rock in late 1980s. But band became standard-bearer on strength of songs like closer and hurt, cohesive and intense albums like 1994's Downward Spiral and string of colossal stadium tours. Reznor continues to be major musical presence and Oscar winner via string of powerful film scores, composed alongside collaborator Atticus Ross. Notorious BIG's career was short. Brooklyn Rapper Made His Debut In 1993 And Was Shot And Killed In 1997 At Age 24, But He Remained Iconic Presence More Than 20 Years After His Death. Ready to Die was instant classic upon its release in 1994; it's work of riveting storyteller who transcended genre and remains both long-term commercial force and towering influence on future generations.

1. Chuck Berry (1986)

Rock singers Chuck Berry, left and Jerry Lee Lewis embrace at reception at Waldorf-Astoria in New York, Jan. 23 1986. Reception precede dinner at which they WERE among first ten inductees into Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame. There are several things that cement Chuck Berry's status as founding father of Rock 'n Roll as we know it today. One of them is fact that he was first musician ever inducted into Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame back in 1986. To be fair, inaugural class was present in alphabetical order, putting Berry ahead of classmates James Brown, Ray Charles, Sam Fats Domino, Everly Brothers, Buddy Holly, Jerry Lee Lewis, Little Richard and Elvis Presley. Also induct in specialty categories WERE CLEVELAND disc jockey Alan Free, Columbia Records' John Hammond and Robert Johnson, Jimmie Rogers, Sam Phillips and Jimmy Yancey. Still, it's hard to imagine Rock Hall choosing better legend as its first inductee. Berry was archetype for music that would define 20th century, influencing everyone from Beatles and Rolling Stones to Jimi Hendrix and Prince. Rolling Stones' guitarist Keith Richards inducted Berry with what is still one of more memorable speeches in Rock Hall Ceremony history: it's very difficult for me to talk about Chuck Berry, because I lift every lick he ever play. That first Ceremony was star-stud affair, unlike anything Rock Hall will be able to put together again, considering several of honorees are dead. Julian and Sean Lennon Elvis Presley. Other presenters Billy Joel, Steve Winwood, Neil Young, Roberta Flack, Hank Williams Jr., Quincy Jones, Ahmet Ertegun and others. Perhaps biggest moment of night was first All-star jam, which would become annual fixture at induction Ceremony. Just about everyone capable hit stage for performances of classics like Roll Over Beethoven, Johnny B. Goode, Great Balls Of Fire and Twist. Berry's death leaves Fats Domino as oldest living member of that first class. Thankfully, Rock Hall has great job pulling together video from every ceremony, including that 1986 landmark event.
