The 2021 Rock and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony will take place in Cleveland on October 30th. Billboard reported that rather than the induction's usual site at the city's Public Auditorium, the ceremony will take place in the newly revamped Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse — formally known as the Quicken Loans Arena.

The inductees for the 36th Annual Rock & Roll Hall of Fame will be announced in May. Artists who have made the shortlist are Foo Fighters, Tina Turner, Todd Rundgren, Devo, the Go-Go's, Iron Maiden, Dionne Warwick, New York Dolls, Carole King, Chaka Khan, Mary J. Blige, Kate Bush, JAY-Z, Fela Kuti, LL Cool J, New York Dolls, and Rage Against The Machine.
