Ozzy Osbourne, Peter Frampton, Lenny Kravitz and Cher are among the 2024 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Nominees it was announced Saturday.

This year’s list of nominees covers a wide array of musical styles ranging from the Rock N Roll of defunct ’90s Brit band Oasis, and the singer-songwriter groove of the Dave Matthews Band, to the elegant R&B tunes of Sade and the funk of Kool & The Gang.

The selection of nominees has grown more diverse each year, as women and people of color rightfully take their place in the history of rock’s founding sound-makers. Osbourne who is already in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Black Sabbath (2006), gets a second go-around, this time for his singular work.

“I’m deeply honored to receive this news from the @RockHall,” Osbourne wrote on social media. “To be one of the few musicians who’s being considered for a second entry, now as a solo artist, is something I could never have imagined. After 44 years as a solo artist the fact that I can continue to record music and receive this recognition is something I am incredibly proud of.”
