The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame has revealed its class of 2024, led by Ozzy Osbourne, Cher and Mary J. Blige among others – see the full list of inductees below.

Earlier today (April 22), the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame took to its website to announce the inductees for this year’s class, which consists of 16 musicians and figures in the music industry.


After years of being snubbed, Cher will finally be inducted this year, along with Ozzy Osbourne, who has been inducted as part of Black Sabbath, but has been snubbed as a solo musician for years.

Other acts being inducted include Dave Matthews Band, A Tribe Called Quest, Mary J. Blige, Peter Frampton, Foreigner and Kool & The Gang.
Jimmy Buffett, MC5, Dionne Warwick and Norman Whitfield will be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in the Musical Excellence category, while Alexis Korner, John Mayall and Big Mama Thornton will be honoured with the Musical Influence Award. Entertainment producer Suzanne de Passe will receive the Ahmet Ertegun Award.


All of the above names will be inducted during a ceremony held in Cleveland on October 19. A list of this year’s performers has yet to be announced.

Cher’s induction comes after she previously slammed her absence last year. The singer aired her concerns to Kelly Clarkson, saying that despite being one of the only two music acts to score a No. 1 hit across a whopping seven decades – the other being The Rolling Stones, who were inducted in 2010 – she’s constantly being passed up for induction.

“And I’m not in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame! You know what, I wouldn’t be in it now if they gave me a million dollars. I’m not kidding you,” she said.

“I’m never going to change my mind,” she continued. “They can just you-know-what themselves.” She then said she “changed music forever” with her 1998 hit “Believe,” which went on to be one of the best-selling singles of all time and pioneered the use of AutoTune in music.
Musicians who were nominated for induction but did not make the cut this year include Oasis, Mariah Carey, Sinead O’Connor, Sade, Jane’s Addiction, Eric B. & Rakim and Lenny Kravitz.

Last year, Kate Bush and George Michael were among the artists who were be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame ceremony. Other inductees for 2023 included Sheryl Crow,  Tom Morello’s band Rage Against The Machine, rap innovator Missy Eliott, The Spinners, and country legend Willie Nelson.
