You can’t stop rock and roll.  But a global pandemic can.  This year’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony is being replaced with an HBO special on Saturday, November 7th.

The Hall says, quote, “We will still create an exciting program honoring our 2020 inductees, by telling the stories of their incredible contributions to music and impact on a generation of artists that followed them.”

This year’s honorees include Depeche Mode, the Doobie Brothers, Whitney Houston, Nine Inch Nails, the Notorious B.I.G., and T-Rex.
