Bon Jovi leads the new class of 2018 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductees list.

Bon Jovi, who rose to fame in the 1970s with hits like “You Give Love a Bad Name,” and “She’s a Little Runaway,” was a fan favorite and also had the votes of music industry voting members.  The group was the top vote-getter in the fan voting.

The New Jersey-bred band was joined on the revered list by The Cars, Dire Straits, The Moody Blues, Nina Simone and Sister Rosetta Tharpe.
