Nirvana are going to be sworn in to the US Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame next year.

To be eligible an artist or band must have put out its first single or album at least 25 years ago.

The grunge trio's debut single - a cover of Love Buzz by Shocking Blue put out on Sub Pop - is finally old enough to qualify them.

The list of inductees for 2014 also features Kiss, Peter Gabriel, Hall And Oates and Cat Stevens.

Nominees who didn't make the cut this time include Deep Purple, NWA and Chic.

The induction ceremony takes place in New York in April.

Public Enemy, Donna Summer and Randy Newman were among last year's inductees.
