They’re joined by progressive rock legends Yes, who is a strong notable inductee following fan backlash about the R&RHOF ignoring the prog rock genre.

Other inductees include Journey, Electric Light Orchestra, Joan Baez and hip-hop icon Tupac Shakur. Legendary producer and CHIC leader Nile Rodgers will be inducted also and will be awarded the Award For Music Excellence.
