The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is one of the most prestigious and controversial institutions in music. Every year, music fans can’t help but complain and rant about who’s in, who should be in and every other argument you can think of. Honestly, it’s sort of nice to have such a reliable constant in life. It’s the music nerd’s version of “death and taxes,” and that’s rather beautiful if you stop and think about it.

Of course, in order to be nominated and inducted into the Rock Hall, 25 years must have passed from the time of an artist’s first released recording. In the vastness of music history, this means many artists are eligible, but very few are inducted. Of those inducted, even fewer are inducted more than once.

For this list, we’re focusing on the very exclusive group of artists that are the Rock Hall’s multiple inductees. Some of the artists in this group are obvious, while some might be surprising. Keep scrolling to discovery who’s all a multi-inductee and learn some other fun facts, too.
