The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame’s Class of 2022 has been unveiled! On Wednesday (May 4), the organization rolled out the official list of every musician who will be inducted in a formal ceremony this year, come Nov. 5.
Rock hitmakers Pat Benatar & Neil Giraldo, new wave chart-toppers Duran Duran, hip-hop heavyweight Eminem, synth-pop duo Eurythmics, country legend Dolly Parton, R&B hitmaker Lionel Richie and pop singer-songwriter Carly Simon lead the class of 2022. Heavy metal fixtures Judas Priest and songwriting/production powerhouse duo Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis are also being inducted this year and will be receiving the “award for musical excellence,” with Priest being the second band ever to do so (the E Street Band was the first band to earn the milestone).
The 2022 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame ceremony is scheduled to take place Nov. 5 at Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles and will be aired through a radio simulcast on SiriusXM’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame radio channel. Fans who miss the event in real time or wish to watch it again can watch on a later date on HBO and stream on HBO Max.
With the ceremony just six months away, we want to know: Whose induction are you looking forward to the most? Vote below!
