Foo Fighters to be inducted in the 2021 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

Rock News 13/05/2021

Just another massive achievement the Foos can add to the neverending list.

Earlier today, Foo Fighters were officially announced as one of the 2021 inductees for the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame - getting inducted in their first year of eligibility.

Not a bad work rate there.

Other performers to be inducted include Jay-Z, Tina Turner, the Go-Go's, Todd Rundgren, and Carole King.  

We can hear you scream, "hang on, those aren't rock musicians?" and hey look you're not wrong. Here's what John Sykes, Chairman of the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame, had to say about this year's class.

This is our most diverse class in the history of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. It really represents the Hall’s ongoing commitment to honor the artists that have created not only rock & roll, but the sound of youth culture.

This will be Dave Grohl's second time entering the Hall Of Fame - his first being with Nirvana in 2014. It is also the second time for Tina Turner and Carole King, too.

Foo Fighters posted the news across their social platforms, saying “Holy shit! The guitar player from the Germs is in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame!!!”, a reference to Foo guitarist Pat Smear, a founding member of the L.A. hardcore band.

The induction ceremony will be held in Cleveland on October 30th (US time), and will be streamed on HBO Max.

Shot Foos!
