Roll out the red carpet then, and let's get this thing rolling.

It's a big day - blink-182 are officially eligible for induction into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame as of February 17, 2020!

As they are essentially the biggest pop-punk band in the world, and a designated hit-machine for the best part of three decades, it's about time isn't it? 

February 17, 2020 marked 25 years since the release of their debut album 'Cheshire Cat' - and with that big and significant anniversary, blink-182 became eligible for induction into the hall of fame. Induction criteria for the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame require that bands and artists are only eligible 25 years after the release of their debut album. There are other criteria as well, including impact on the evolution, development and perpetuation of rock and roll - which blink definitely fit the bill for. 

It's the biggest honour in rock and roll - and other inductees include Nirvana and Green Day (who were inducted back in 2015 by Fall Out Boy). 

The 2020 inductees include Nine Inch Nails and Depeche Mode.
