They dominated the fan vote, and now rock n' roll heavyweights Bon Jovi will officially be inducted into the Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame. The band broke up in 1995 when Knopfler embarked on a solo career.

Formed in Birmingham in 1964, The Moody Blues pioneered art rock and are most famous for their 1967 hit Nights In White Satin. After several changes of lineup, the band is due to embark in January on a US tour to mark the 50th anniversary of its "Days of Future Passed" album.

The Cars, led by Ric Ocasek, went in a different direction, bringing the quirky electronic effects of New Wave to classically structured pop songs, generating a string of hits such as "You Might Think", "Shake It Up", "Just What I Needed" and "Drive". The band reunited in 2010, releasing the album "Move Like This", and toured in the United States in 2011.

To choose the 2018 inductees, an worldwide voting body of more than 900 artists, historians and members of the music industry received ballots, and the top five artists selected comprised a "fans' ballot" that was tallied along with the other ballots. Other nominees that didn't make it include Rage Against the Machine (also their first year of eligibility), Kate Bush, Judas Priest, Eurythmics, Depeche Mode, LL Cool J, The Zombies, MC5, Link Ray, Rufus with Chaka Khan, The Meters, and J. Geils Band.
