1996: David Bowie, Pink Floyd, Gladys Knight & The Pips, Pete Seeger, Jefferson Airplane, The Velvet Underground and The Shirelles headline the class of 1996 inductees into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Although the ceremony was held in New York City, it was the first induction since the Hall of Fame's long-awaited museum complex opened in Cleveland, Ohio, in the fall of 1995.
