The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 2020 inductees will be:

Depeche Mode
The Doobie Brothers
Whitney Houston
Nine Inch Nails
The Notorious B.I.G.
T. Rex

Notably snubbed are Pat Benatar and Dave Matthews Band - DMB's fans are being rather vocal about it.

I haven't put much credence in the Rock Hall for quite a while because the thought of Rolling Stone writers subjectively choosing inductees bothers me. They also need to either take a few years off or reduce the number of acts they accept, because it's getting thin. This class can probably do without Notorious B.I.G. or T. Rex, but both acts have mythical tales that give them far more gravitas than their music ever did.

The Rock Hall made a big mistake when they named their institution because they've had to induct many acts that are in no way "rock." We learned this lesson when we named our Music History Calendar - making it the "Rock History Calendar" would have been too restrictive.
