The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has announced the official 2020 Induction Class. Landau, a MA native, was listed as co-producer for seven Bruce albums, from 1975′s "Born To Run" to 1992′s "Human Touch" and "Lucky Town".

To be eligible for this year's ballot, each artist was required to have had an album or single released in or prior to 1994. "I'm quite in shock", Reznor, the band's sole inductee, told Rolling Stone. "So I'm allowing myself, for a limited period of time, to feel good about this".

Notorious B.I.G.is only the fifth hip hop artist to be enshrined in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, joining Run-D.M.C. (2009), Beastie Boys (2012), Public Enemy (2013), N.W.A (2016) and the lone solo rap artist until now, 2Pac (2016).

Tickets for the event go on sale to RRHOF members on February 25 at 10 a.m.
