Janet Jackson, 6 Others, Get Inducted Into Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame

The 2019 inductees for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame were announced Thursday morning, honoring artists across genres and generations. Groundbreaking pop icon Janet Jackson earned her nod, as did bewitching Fleetwood Mac frontwoman Stevie Nicks.

Alt-rockers the Cure were named alongside fellow ’80s stadium fillers Def Leppard. Radiohead are this year’s youngest inductees — they first became eligible for the class of 2018, 25 years after their debut — and ’60s British invasion legends the Zombies are the senior members, having released their debut in 1964.

Jackson, 52, helped define music in the ’80s and ’90s with anthemic R&B infused tracks — 27 reaching the Billboard Top 10 — and bold artistic statements like Control and Rhythm Nation 1814 helped her sell more than 160 million records worldwide over the course of her career. Her fashion set trends, her dance moves blew minds, and her trailblazing music videos helped a cement a nascent MTV’s status as a media giant. (They repaid the favor by giving her the Video Vanguard Award at the 1990 VMAs.)
Nicks, 70, who has already been inducted as a member of Fleetwood Mac in 1998, would make history as the first woman to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice. Though she issued an album with then-boyfriend (and future Fleetwood Mac guitarist) Lindsey Buckingham in 1973, her first proper solo disc came in 1981 with Bella Donna. From there she scored numerous hits independent of Mac, including “Edge of Seventeen,” “Stand Back,” and “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around” with Tom Petty.

Fronted by the great Robert Smith — role model for a generation of “goth” high school students — the Cure were one of the most beloved bands of the ’80s, topping the charts with songs like “Just Like Heaven,” “Boys Don’t Cry,” and “In Between Days” that blended post punk and psychedelic haze and Smith’s eerie poetry.

The Zombies have long been a favorite, consistently scoring high votes in the fan-led nomination process. Beloved for their moody, jazz-tinged smashes like “Time of the Season,” “She’s Not There,” and “Tell Her No,” the band have received a late career renaissance in recent years after their 1968 album Odessey and Oracle was rediscovered and hailed as a pop masterpiece by some of the biggest names in music.
