There is a lot of celebrating for musicians getting inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this year.

“We are thrilled and humbled to become part of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame family,” tweeted Pat Benatar and her husband Neil Giraldo. “Thank you to everyone who voted, especially the fans, and congratulations to all the other inductees.”

In a video message on Duran Duran’s Twitter page, John Taylor said that the band is “…so honored and thrilled and happy.”

As for Judas Priest? Frontman Rob Halford joked that he just wanted a selfie with fellow inductee Dolly Parton, but added, “And glory hallelujah, there’s another metal band in now. That’s the blessing we’ve all been waiting for.”
