The Library of Congress have inducted records by The Ramones, Chubby Checker, Simon & Garfunkel, and Pink Floyd into their hallowed achieves, where the music will be protected and preserved for their “cultural, historical, or aesthetic significance”.

This year’s notable entrants include The Ramones’ self-titled 1976 debut, Saturday Night Fever by The Bee Gees, Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon, The Twist by he who has the chubbiest of checkers (Chubby Checker), Simon & Garfunkel’s Sounds of Silence and Jimmie Davis’s You Are My Sunshine.

Each year the Librarian, with assistance from Library’s National Recording Preservation Board must select 25 albums to be included into the Library of Congress as per the terms of the National Recording Preservation Act of 2000.

If you’d like to make any suggestions for artists and band you believe belong in Library of Congress, you can make your submissions here.
