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.

Performers

Essential albums: Black Celebration, Music for Masses, violator Why they get In: As nominating committee and voters begin looking at acts from 1990s and 2000s, Depeche Mode's influence has only become more apparent. Bands ' ability to merge rock with elements wasnt original. But they take it place it had never before with darkness that would influence everyone from Smashing Pumpkins and Killers to Lady Gaga and fellow Inductee Nine Inch Nails. Seal of Theyre band with such broad appeal that they impact so many, says Greg Harris, president and CEO of Rock Hall. I think at their core, they take elements of swamp rock and blues and goth and synth and mash them all together in really powerful and refreshing way. Theyre giants if you to more current bands. Whos next: Wed to say Kraftwerk. But voters dont seem keen on that. Following inductions of Roxy Music, Cure and Depeche Mode, Eurythmics seem next in line to give groups nomination in 2018. Essential albums: Toulouse Street, Captain and Me, Minute by Minute Why they get In: blueprint for Doobie Induction was laid down by Chicago. Build up ton of musical cred during your first decade with some stellar albums. Follow that up with massive sales, ranking you among biggest Rock acts in world. Doobies' following makes it so if band was ever nominate, it would surely get in. Going down list of acts from 1970s that appeared In, it was only matter of time before nominating committee came around. Seal of approval: Doobie Brothers have been around forever, says SiriusXM Vinyl host Katherine Boyd. Theyre one of those workhorse bands thats been around so long theyve proven themselves as true Rock and Roll band and that why theyre are getting In. Whos next: at list of prototypical Classic Rock artists, Boston or Bad Company feels right. But there is plethora to choose from: Foreigner, Styx, Bachman-Turner Overdrive, Blue Oyster Cult, etc. Essential albums: Whitney Houston, Whitney, Bodyguard Why they get In: One of biggest pop stars of all time and one of greatest vocalists to ever sing note. Houstons cultural impact is undeniable. Rock Hall has true to including Pop Music artists. With push for more women to get in, Houstons Induction was next logical step. Seal of approval: her sheer vocality and her musicality period, says Nwaka Onwusa, chief curator and vice president of curatorial affairs for Rock Hall. For those who like, why is she here? Aretha Franklin and Billie Holiday have been inducted into Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Some of greatest singers of all time are in Rock Hall. Whitney is more than deserving. Whos next: mind ca help but go from Houston to Mariah Carey, who recently became eligible.
