The kings of punk rock ‘The Stooges’ have been added to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame organizers announced overnight. After 7 nominations over the past decade they will be finally inducted alongside ABBA, Genesis, the Hollies and Jimmy Cliff on March 15th.

In an interview with Rolling Stone Iggy said:

We’ve been rejected seven times, and we would have set a record, I think, if it happened again. It started to feel like Charlie Brown and the football. I had about two hours of a strong emotional reaction after hearing the news. It felt like vindication. Then I kind of scratched my head and thought, ‘Am I still cool? Or is that over now?’
