The inductees of The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's class of 2014 have been announced. Bands Nirvana and Kiss as well as singer Peter Gabriel are all going to be inducted at a ceremony held on April 10, 2014.

In order to be eligible for induction, artists need to have released their first single or album 25 years ago. Nirvana, whose first single "Love Buzz" arrived in 1988, was accepted in its first year of eligibility and the band's surviving members will receive the award 20 years after frontman Kurt Cobain committed suicide at 27.

Meanwhile, Kiss has been eligible for the last 15 years but they have only been nominated once before. As for Gabriel, he was previously inducted as a member of Genesis in 2010.

The three rockers join other artists which include Hall & Oates, Cat Stevens and Linda Ronstadt in the performers category.

In non-performers category, Bruce Springsteen's The E Street Band will receive the Award for Music Excellence, while The Beatles manager Brian Epstein and The Rolling Stones manager/producer Andrew Loog Oldham will be presented with Ahmet Ertegun Awards for their work behind the scenes in the music industry.

The April 10 ceremony will take place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY. It will be open to the public and the tickets go on sale next January. The event will also air on HBO in May.
