Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame For Pearl Jam

The ballots have been counted, and the 2017 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees have been revealed. One of the acts who will be enshrined in the Rock Hall are Pearl Jam. An act becomes eligible for nomination 25 years after their first significant recording, and Pearl Jam made it in on their first year of eligibility, having released their self-titled debut album in 1991. Among the nominees who did not make the cut this year are Jane’s Addiction, Bad Brains, The MC5, Depeche Mode and others. They will all have to wait and see if they make the ballot in future years. The 32nd annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony will take place April 7 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y.

Lars Ulrich: Metallica have always felt like outsiders

Lars Ulrich says Metallica have always felt "like outsiders." Despite being one of the biggest bands in the world after years of success, drummer Ulrich says the thrash icons have never felt like they "belonged to anything."
