Mary J. Blige: The Queen of Hip-Hop Soul, Mary J. Blige’s anthems of resilience and empowerment have inspired a legion of loyal fans — particularly women — while influencing virtually every R&B artist of the last 20 years.
Mariah Carey: Singer, songwriter, record producer, actress and diva, Mariah Carey’s five-octave vocal range, revolutionary riffs and runs, and dynamic career trajectory shifted the landscape of pop music at the turn of the 21st century. The indisputable Songbird Supreme, she continually reminds the world that the voice, too, is an instrument.
Cher: An inimitable trailblazer for women in music and an icon of style, stage and screen, Cher’s voice and charisma have garnered seven decades — and counting — of success.
Dave Matthews Band: Dave Matthews Band harnessed an eclectic sound and relentless touring schedule to become one of the biggest bands in the world. Long, intricate solos, non-traditional rock & roll instruments, unique time signatures and an electric live show trademark their unique sound.
Eric B. & Rakim: Eric B. & Rakim pioneered a thoughtful, poetic approach to hip-hop. The duo revolutionized the use of softer rapping, internal rhymes and soulful beats. They expanded hip-hop and brought the genre to a new level of creativity and technique.
Foreigner: With a rock legacy spanning more than five decades, Foreigner was built around the creative forces Mick Jones and Lou Gramm. One of the bestselling classic rock bands of all time, with worldwide sales topping 80 million records, Foreigner had an impressive catalogue of hits throughout the 1970s and 1980s — all still recognizable to this day.
Peter Frampton: Passionate songwriter, exceptional guitarist, and cultural touchstone, Peter Frampton is one of few musicians who can evoke an image of rock & roll stardom with three simple words: “Frampton Comes Alive!”
Jane’s Addiction: Jane’s Addiction were the first to bring alternative rock into the mainstream. They drafted the blueprint for modern festivals and forged the alternative nation subculture.
Kool & the Gang: In a career that has lasted over 50 years, Kool & the Gang have been essential innovators in the sound of funk, soul, disco and R&B, creating rock & roll’s most danceable anthems.
Lenny Kravitz: Rock god. Guitar hero. Soldier of soul. Lenny Kravitz refused to confine himself to any one genre, reimagining rock & roll for the 1990s and beyond.
Oasis: With expertly crafted lyrics and anthemic sound, Oasis’ Britpop took the world by storm.
Sinead O’Connor: O’Connor is lauded as “fierce,” “brilliant,” “honest,” “vulnerable,” “rebellious” and “unapologetic” by peers around the world and the generations of musicians she influenced and inspired, including Alanis Morissette, Massive Attack, Janelle Monae and Phoebe Bridgers.
Ozzy Osbourne: Ozzy Osbourne has made a lasting impact on rock music and influenced countless artists. With his longevity, enormous impact, and iconic persona, Ozzy is a phenomenon unlike any other in rock music.
Sade: Sade have blended jazz, soul and R&B to create a sound that’s all their own — laid-back rhythms, elegant arrangements, melodic saxophone lines, and, of course, the smooth, sultry, mesmerizing vocals of their lead singer Sade Adu. Their songs of love, life and loss resonate with listeners on a deeply personal level.
A Tribe Called Quest: A Tribe Called Quest forever shifted the hip-hop landscape and expanded the creative possibilities for the genre. Their freedom of expression, ingenuity and minimalist brilliance continue to inspire generations of hip-hop artists and fans.
Last year’s induction ceremony in Brooklyn included Kate Bush, Sheryl Crow, Missy Elliott, George Michael, Willie Nelson, Rage Against the Machine and The Spinners. Elliott became the first female rapper to make the cut. A Tribe Called Quest is the only 2023 nominee to be selected again in 2024. An artist is eligible 25 years after a first recording is released.
