The 33rd Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will be held at the Public Auditorium and tickets go on sale in January.

Bon Jovi, The Moody Blues, The Cars, Dire Straits and Nina Simone will be enshrined in the Rock Hall in the performer category, while Sister Rosetta Tharpe will be recognised with an award for Early Influence.

Radiohead were the only act eligible for the first time on this year's ballot but unfortunately did not make it in.

While it will always be an institution, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame does have a problem attracting younger people, and part of the reason is that the bands included are, for the most part, not as beloved by or relevant to younger crowds. See the full list, which includes Bon Jovi and The Cars, right here!

In an interview with The Associated Press on Wednesday, Jon Bon Jovi said the news was "wonderful". [We were] guys living the dream, getting on a bus with no guarantees in any way shape or form or anything. "We'd love it if they played with us", drummer Tico Torres told Rolling Stone, mentioning original bassist Alec John Such as well. Let us know in the comments.

Bon Jovi, led by Jon Bon Jovi, formed in 1983 in New Jersey and remains one of the biggest acts in the USA music industry, releasing albums every couple of years. HBO airs an edited version of each year's ceremony, usually several weeks after it takes place.

It's a shame because the Rock Hall really had the opportunity to make this one of the more memorable classes in recent years. The band says they're open to welcoming back ex-guitarist Richie Sambora, who left in 2013, for the induction, and it appears he's also down.

Likewise, former Moody Blues' members Mike Pinder and Ray Thomas could rejoin the pioneering English band after many years apart.

Instead, we get a bunch of classic-rock acts that had been bypassed (mostly, for good reasons) for years.

DEEP PURPLE was eligible for the Rock Hall since 1993 but didn't get inducted until past year.

The Hall of Fame notably did not select Radiohead or Rage Against the Machine.
