The six artists will be welcomed into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame at a ceremony in Brooklyn in April next year.

Those to be inducted include Nirvana, Cat Stevens, Kiss, Hall and Oates, Peter Gabriel and Linda Ronstadt.

Performers who were nominated but didn't make the cut include N.W.A, Chic, LL Cool J, Deep Purple, Link Wray, The Replacements and Yes.

President of the Hall of Fame, Joel Peresman spoke to Rolling Stone about the decision to include Nirvana, "That's really no surprise to me. People see the relevancy of that band."

Artists are eligible for the vote 25 years after the release of their first album of single. 2013 marked the first year that Nirvana were eligible and also marked the 20th anniversary of In Utero.
