The final list of inductees for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame for 2022 is in, with a varied crop of iconic names set to join the list at the official ceremony in Los Angeles.
Back when Dolly initially turned the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame down, the artist originally felt like she wasn’t deserving of the title.
She’s since come around to the idea, having learned that the Hall of Fame has included artists from other genres outside rock and roll.
“When I said that, it was always my belief that the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame was for the people in rock music,” she said recently.
“And I have found out lately it’s not necessarily that. But if they can’t go there to be recognised, where do they go? And so I felt like I would be taking away from someone that maybe deserved it, certainly more than me since I never considered myself a rock artist. But obviously, there’s more to it than that.”

The inductees are decided upon by over 1000 artists, music industry professionals and historians. The original shortlist for the 2022 Hall of Fame class included Kate Bush, Rage Against The Machine, Dionne Warwick and more, however they didn’t make the final list for the year.
The 2022 Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame class will be honoured at a ceremony in Los Angeles on November 5.
