They include Tina Turner (81), Carole King (79), Jay-Z (51), and Todd Rundgren (72). The Foo Fighters and The Go-Go's will also join their ranks, the Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio, announced Wednesday.

It's the first time three female performers or female-led acts have been chosen in one year. It's also the first time an all-female band has made it into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, ABC reported.

"I am absolutely thrilled to be included into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame amongst such amazing artists! Thank you for all your continued love and support over the years!" Turner wrote on Instagram.

The artists were selected from a group of 16 contenders. On October 30, they will be officially inducted at a ceremony in Cleveland.

Germany-based electronic band Kraftwerk is also slated to receive the special Early Influence Award, which honors artists whose music and style have had an impact on the rock scene.

Kraftwerk had already been nominated for inclusion in the Hall of Fame six times since 2003, but did not make it to the final round.

The selection is decided by more than 1,200 musicians, musicologists, and other members of the industry. Fan votes are also taken into account.

Condition for the admission into the hall of fame is that the artist or band's first album must be at least 25 years old.
