The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame announced its 2023 inductees on Wednesday. The performer category includes Kate Bush, Sheryl Crow, Missy Elliott, George Michael, Willie Nelson, Rage Against the Machine, and The Spinners.

The musical influence award will go to DJ Kool Herc and Link Wray, and the excellence award will go to Chaka Khan, Al Kooper, and Bernie Taupin.

Don Cornelius will be awarded this year’s Ahmet Ertegun award, which is awarded to “non-performing industry professionals who have had a major influence on the creative development and growth of rock and roll and music that has impacted youth culture.”

“This year’s incredible group of Inductees reflects the diverse artists and sounds that define rock & roll,” said John Sykes, Chairman of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation. “We are honored that this November’s Induction Ceremony in New York will coincide with two milestones in music culture; the 90th birthday of Willie Nelson and the 50th Anniversary of the birth of Hip Hop.”

Additionally, Crow, Michael, The White Stripes, Elliott, Cyndi Lauper, Iron Maiden, Nelson, Rage Against the Machine, A Tribe Called Quest, Warren Zevon, Soundgarden, The Spinners, Bush, and Joy Division/New Order were among the nominees for this year’s ceremony.

Missy Elliott, The White Stripes, Crow, Lauper, Michael, Nelson, Zevon, and Joy Division/New Order all made the list for the first time.

On Friday, November 3,  the 38th Annual Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will be held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
